To screen or not to screen for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) pre-operatively?

Abstract:
Anaesthesia worsens OSA, and may lead to respiratory and cardiac complications. Three critical incidents have occurred in the Oxford Hospitals in recent years. OSA is very common at around 5–25%, but half the cases are not diagnosed. So should we screen for OSA pre-operatively?
