Abstract:
Session presented on Friday, July 24, 2015: Purpose: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a sleep disorder that has emerged as a significant threat to patient safety within the perioperative setting, with an incidence rate of undiagnosed OSA predicted to be as high as 82% in males and 93% in females.' The use of a valid OSA screening tool such as the STOP-Bang Questionnaire would improve the ability of anesthesia providers to reliably identify surgical candidates with risk factors for unrecognized OSA, thereby allowing for better patient risk stratification and perioperative management.'Methods: Prior to the implementation of the STOP-Bang Questionnaire criteria, training and education related to the appropriate administration of the OSA screening questionnaire will be provided to all designated end-users, which includes all anesthesia providers and support staff.' After the training, the STOP-Bang Questionnaire criteria will be utilized for all surgical candidates at the project site for a period of 1 month.' After IRB approval, a retrospective data collection will consist of a 2-month period for which pre and post questionnaire measurements for PACU LOS and incidence rate for OSA risk factors will be abstracted and compared. Results: A minimum size of 51 charts per group or total sample size of 102 charts will be reviewed, abstracted, and analyzed to determine a statistical significance between the PACU LOS from the baseline retrospective chart review and the post-questionnaire retrospective chart review.' Validation of a successful clinical study will show a higher incidence rate of surgical patients with risk factors for OSA and decreased PACU LOS for surgical patients with a BMI > 30 kg/m2 when compared to the baselines for incidence rate of surgical patients with risk factors for OSA and PACU LOS for surgical patients with a BMI > 30 kg/m2.Conclusion:' The presence of a statistically significant reduction in PACU LOS would suggest that use of the STOP-Bang Questionnaire criteria contributed to the provision of individualized perioperative clinical care that resulted in decreased PACU LOS.
