Sensible. Simple. Effective. Reaching out to more patients. D EVELOPING A P ERIOPERATIVE S LEEP M ANAGEMENT P ROGRAM
R EASONS TO I NTEGRATE A P ERIOPERATIVE A PNEA P ROGRAM Increasing Prevalence of Apnea 4% - Estimated prevalence of OSA in middle-aged men. 24% - Percent of U.S. men suffer from some form of sleep disordered breathing (SDB). ASA Practice Guidelines Joint Commission Focus Reimbursement Changes Reduce Liability Claims Improving Patient Care Reduce Adverse Events, Decreasing: o Hospital Re-admissions o Extended PACU stays o Unanticipated ICU admissions New England Journal of Medicine. 1993; 328; ASA Task Force. Anesthesiology 2006; 104:1081–93.
R EASONS FOR A PNEA S CREENING Undiagnosed Apnea Patients Pose the Highest Risk Known apneics make up a small portion of the population undergoing surgery. Over 28 million Americans suffer from OSA, 20 million going undiagnosed & untreated. Research shows preoperative identification of OSA & use of perioperative precautionary measures improves patient outcomes. Finkel, et. al. Sleep Review July-Aug Gupta, et. al.. Mayo Clinic Proc. 2001; 76: Moos, et. al. ANAA Journal. June Vol 3, No 3. ASA Task Force. Anesthesiology 2006; 104:1081–93. SCREENING IDENTIFIES PATIENTS THAT WOULD NOT SEEK TREATMENT OTHERWISE.
A combination of factors put apnea patients at higher risk, including: Lingering anesthetics Amount/type of pain medications used Decreased monitoring Marked REM rebound A PNEA, A NESTHESIA & P AIN M ANAGEMENT Finkel, et. al. Sleep Review July-Aug Gupta, et. al.. Mayo Clinic Proc. 2001; 76: Moos, et. al. ANAA Journal. June Vol 3, No 3. ASA Task Force. Anesthesiology 2006; 104:1081–93. Anesthetics & Pain Medications Depress the Central Nervous System Decreased Muscle Tone Obstructive Apnea Events Light, Erratic Breathing Central Apnea Events Hypoxemia Respiratory Failure Diminished Arousal Response Hypoxemia Respiratory Failure
F INANCIAL R ISK R EDUCTION Implementing a Perioperative Apnea Management Program Prevents or Reduces Risk of: Never Events o Waived Fees o Possible Remunerative or Punitive Repercussions Non-payment for Unexpected Medical Events o National movement to stop paying for these types of events CMS Recovery Audits

S AVING M ONEY & I NCREASING O PPORTUNITIES Case Study Findings: At Risk Patients = Greater Costs for Hospitals Not Identifying at Risk Patients? Deduct from Your Bottom Line. *From a Patient Pool of 20,000: o 340 Patients - At Risk Of Post-operative Respiratory Failure o 9 Additional Days - Spent In Hospital By At-risk Patients on Average o $1,900 – Hospital Cost Per Day = $5,865,680 Total Additional Costs Case Study Findings
S AVING M ONEY & I NCREASING O PPORTUNITIES Case Study Findings: Monitoring Saves Money & Creates Opportunity Saving Money o $1,759,704 - Amount Saved with Objective Screening in Case Study Opportunity through the Sleep Lab & DME o +$446,080 - Gross margin for additional PSG testing (to confirm & initiate therapy) brought on by patients identified during pre-operative screening. o +$170,000 - Net Revenue for DME
P ROBLEMS WITH C OMMON S CREENING M ETHODS o Subjective o Simplistic stratification i.e. high or low risk o Not specific i.e. high # of false-positives - Leads to unnecessary testing or delayed surgery o Cannot indicate type/severity of SDB Questionnaires In-lab Polysomnography (PSG) o Costly o Impractical for Screening Population is too large – Would delay surgery o Can Take Days or Weeks to Receive Results o Higher refusal/drop-out rates Guidelines for the Perioperative Management of Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

Screening Test Reliability & Summary Recommendations for Preoperative Use Many of the most commonly used preoperative screening questionnaires are considered to have poor accuracy.

T HE S.O.S. A PPROACH Subjective Screen Use questionnaire (e.g. STOP; STOP-BANG; Berlin) to screen everyone o The population at risk is often large and will often include many patients with low risk. A much smaller subgroup with very high risk will require pre-op intervention. Objective Screen Oximetry (e.g. SatScreen) devices are widely used because of affordability, high predictive value, & minimal patient impact. o Identifies the high risk subgroup. S.O.S. Subjective Objective Screening Research shows a combination approach can be the most feasible & effective method Hwang, et. al. Chest 2008; 133;
