Oxygen Saturation Patterns in Post-Op Patients at Risk for Obstructive Sleep Apnea
This study has been completed.

Last verified: August 2014
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.
