A PNEA S CREENING FOR D IABETES P ATIENTS Sensible. Simple. Effective. Reaching out to more patients.
R EASONS TO I NTEGRATE AN A PNEA S CREENING P ROGRAM Increasing Prevalence o 24%- Nearly one quarter of U.S. men suffer from some form of sleep disordered breathing (SDB). International Diabetes Federation Recommendations OSA should be considered in the assessment of all patients with Type II Diabetes. Improving Patient Care o Early detection & treatment reduces risk of disease & death related to other serious health conditions, such as: Type II Diabetes Hypertension Congestive Heart Failure Stroke New England Journal of Medicine. 1993; 328; Shaw, et. al. Diabetes Research & Clinical Practice. 2008; 81: 2-12.
D IABETES & A PNEA Evidence indicates that the presence of one disease may trigger biological mechanisms that increase risk of the other. OSA Hypoxia & Sleep Fragmentation (Alters Glucose Metabolism) Stress Response (Alters Leptin Levels ; Increases Insulin Resistance) Glucose Intolerance/ Type II Diabetes Autonomic Neuropathy (Alters Ventilatory Control During Sleep) Shaw, et. al.

Link Between Diabetes & SDB o 58% of Type II Diabetics have some form of sleep disordered breathing (SDB) Health Concerns o Both Diabetes & Apnea significantly increase risk of cardiovascular disease & death Treatment Concerns o Apnea negatively impacts glucose tolerance, insulin resistance & increased risk of metabolic syndrome Leads to difficulties with diabetes management Richard; Gay & Farrell.

Improves Factors Related to Diabetes o Improves glycemic control o Improved insulin sensitivity and leptin levels o Reduces Sympathetic Activation o A key factor in regulation of glucose & fat metabolism, as well as systemic inflammation. – Biological mechanisms thought to contribute to insulin resistance. Reduces Cardiovascular Risk o Significantly decreases blood pressure (BP) o Improves Heart Function o Decreases # of new cardiovascular events & arrhythmias Improves Overall Patient Outcomes o Reduces morbidity & mortality associated with cardiovascular events & stroke o Patients using positive airway pressure have better Epworth Sleepiness Scale & Health-Related Quality of Life scores.

E CONOMIC I MPACT OF U NDIAGNOSED A PNEA $3.4 billion Yearly estimate of the medical costs of untreated OSA in the U.S. $15.9 billion Collision costs directly attributable to OSA in $5 billion Yearly loss of productivity attributable to Apnea-related fatigue. Other Indirect Costs E.g. higher insurance, production, & consumer costs Higher incidence of work-related accidents Non-Financial Burden Increased incidence of disability Diminished quality of life for affected.

R EASONS FOR A PNEA S CREENING SDB is Largely Undiagnosed Over 28 million Americans suffer from OSA, yet 20 million go undiagnosed & untreated. Increased Health Risks SDB is associated with a range of comorbid conditions. Significant Financial & Disability Burden Untreated SDB places substantial burden on both individuals & society.

Diabetes Research & Clinical Practice. 2008; 81: SCREENING IDENTIFIES PATIENTS THAT WOULD NOT SEEK TREATMENT OTHERWISE.
P ROBLEMS WITH C OMMON S CREENING M ETHODS o Subjective o Not specific i.e. high # of false-positives - Leads to unnecessary testing & delayed Dx for those with severe apnea o Cannot indicate type/severity of SDB o Not Validated for Diabetic Population Questionnaires In-lab Polysomnography (PSG) o Costly o Impractical for Screening Population is too large o Can Take Days or Weeks to Receive Results o Higher refusal/drop-out rates Finkel, et. al..

S CREENING T EST R ELIABILITY & S UMMARY R ECOMMENDATIONS Many of the most commonly used screening questionnaires have poor predictive values, esp. for mild to moderate cases.

T HE S.O.S. A PPROACH Subjective Screen o Use questionnaire (e.g. STOP-BANG; Berlin) to screen everyone 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 expedient intervention. Objective Screen o Oximetry (e.g. SatScreen) devices are widely used because of affordability, high predictive value, & minimal patient impact. 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;
