People who are unusually sleepy during the day for no apparent reason should be evaluated for obstructive sleep apnea and, if needed, undergo a diagnostic sleep study, according to a new clinical guideline.
The guideline, from the American College of Physicians (ACP), is based on reviews of peer-reviewed studies published from 1966 through May 2013. The ACP’s review of the medical literature evaluated how effectively different types of sleep tests can diagnose sleep apnea.
