Edited by Ferran Barbé and Jean-Louis Pépin
Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a common and progressive chronic disease. It is responsible for a high number of comorbidities and is linked with increased mortality, including a rise in the rate of sudden cardiac death. It is widely acknowledged that OSA now affects millions of people worldwide. This Monograph considers this high-impact condition from four different perspectives: pathogenesis; at-risk populations; clinical scenarios; and treatment and management. Comprehensive and up-to-date chapters provide the reader with a concise overview of OSA, making this book a useful reference for pulmonologists concerned with the management of this disease. 

"Packs up-to-date information in a relatively small and readable book. Both basic and applied scientists and physicians with special interest in sleep medicine will find value... A must-have for training programs not only in sleep medicine but also pulmonary and critical care training programs, for academic clinicians, and groups doing health services or basic research on OSA" Elias Alhanoun, Novera Inam and Kingman Strohl, Sleep and Breathing
