BOSTN Bundle Intervention for Perioperative Screening and Management of Patients With Suspected Obstructive Sleep Apnea: A Hospital Registry Study

OSA represents an important risk factor for postoperative complications.
In this very interesting study, the authors have highlighted that a preoperative screening followed by clinical management pathways could induce a reduction of the length of stay for OSA patients and that they required postoperative mechanical ventilation less frequently. This study highlights a new perspective for OSA management: adequate screening following by special clinical pathways could lead to reducing postoperative OSA complications.
