Brief Summary:
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.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. 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 ]
    Number of patients exhibiting the presence of repetitive reductions in airflow patterns in the pulse oximetry trend data collected on subjects

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. 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 ]
    The number of patients with a positive repetitive reduction in nasal airflow which correlates with positive oxygen desaturation pattern as measured by photoplethysmography sensors.
