  Purpose
Sleep apnea syndrome (OSA) frequently occurs in obese population undergoing bariatric surgery. There is a need for alternative screening tools for sleep apnea detection in the pre-operative period. The investigators would like to compare ApneaLink and complete polysomnography in this population.

Condition
Sleep Apnea Syndrome

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of patients with correct diagnosis of OSA with ApneaLink. Therefore, we will compare apnea-hypopnea index measured with ApneaLink with apnea-hypopnea index measured during polysomnography. [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]

Enrollment: 9
Study Start Date: October 2010
Study Completion Date: May 2011
Primary Completion Date: May 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts
bariatric population
obese patients in whom a bariatric surgery is planified

Detailed Description:

OSA can occur in up to 78% of patients undergoing bariatric surgery(1). Moderate to severe case will benefit from CPAP therapy, that can help avoiding post-operative complications(2).

In this population, the investigators propose complete attended in-hospital polysomnography (PSG)in patients with a clinical high probability of OSA.

According to obesity epidemics (3), waiting list for PSG in sleep labs is every day longer.

The investigators want to assess sensitivity and specificity of a new portable screening tool, ApneaLink, to detect OSA in a bariatric population.

Design:

monocentric and prospective study

Methods:

Patients:

- OSA suspicion based on :

  • symptoms and signs (snoring, apneas , neck circumference >38 (women) or 43cm (men))
  • BMI > 50
  • BMI > 40, > 40 y
  • BMI > 35, men, hypertension
  • increased serum Bicarbonate
  • Polyglobulia

Measurements

  • Polysomnography in sleep lab with concommitant recording performed with Apnea LinkTM (nasal flow and oxymétry recording).
  • between 2 weeks : recording performed with Apnea LinkTM (nasal flow and oxymétry recording)at home.
