|Trachebronchomalacia (TBM) Hyper Dynamic Airway Collapse (HDAC) Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)|
Tracheobronchomalacia (TBM) and HyperDynamic Airway Collapse (HDAC) are two distinct airway diseases that lead to airway collapse which can in turn lead to the symptoms of dyspnea, cough, and inability to expectorate sputum effectively. TBM entails flaccid tracheal and bronchial cartilages leading to airway collapse, emanating primarily from the anterior wall of the lumen. It is seen in conditions such as Relapsing Polychondritis and saber sheath tracheal deformity. HDAC on the other hand is the hyper-flaccidity of the membranous portion of the tracheobronchial tree leading to airway collapse. This condition is commonly seen with obesity and severe emphysema. TBM and HDAC frequently coexist.
In patients with TBM/HDAC sleep disorders are common. Patients often complain of poor quality sleep, snoring, daytime fatigue, and somnolence. These patients are often diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) upon workup.

- Epworth Sleepiness Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline ]The Epworth Sleepiness Scale is widely used in the field of sleep medicine as a subjective measure of a patient's sleepiness. The test is a list of eight situations in which you rate your tendency to become sleepy on a scale of 0, no chance of dozing, to 3, high chance of dozing.
