NCT01078207

  Purpose

This study will include patients who have major surgery and are at risk for or have been diagnosed with sleep apnea. The patients will be monitored the night after surgery for repeating episodes of reduced breathing and oxygen levels. The study will determine if episodes of decreased breathing are reflected in the oxygen monitor.


Condition
Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case Control

Further study details as provided by Covidien:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Presence of Repetitive Reductions in Nasal Airflow Patterns in the Pulse Oximetry Saturation Trend Data. [ Time Frame: 12 hour after released from the recovery room ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Number of patients exhibiting the presence of repetitive reductions in airflow patterns in the pulse oximetry trend data collected on subjects


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Relationship Between the Oxygen Desaturation Patterns and Repetitive Reductions in Nasal Airflow as Measured by Inductance Plethysmography and Nasal Pressure. [ Time Frame: 12 hours after discharge form the recovery room ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The number of patients with a positive repetitive reduction in nasal airflow who have a positive oxygen desaturation pattern.

Patients older than 18 years undergoing thoracic, vascular, head and neck, gynecological, urological, general, orthopedic, and plastic surgery.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients older than 18 years undergoing thoracic, vascular, head and neck, gynecological, urological, general, orthopedic, and plastic surgery.
  • Patient must require analgesia and/or sedation postoperatively by any route (intravenous, intramuscular, oral, epidural or intrathecal) for the duration of the study
