To the Editor Dr Chai-Coetzer and colleagues1 compared management models of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and found that primary care physicians and advanced practice nurses did not provide inferior screening and diagnosis of OSA vs physicians with specialized training in sleep medicine. I believe that several relevant issues suggest this conclusion is premature.
