Sleep nasendoscopy: a technique of assessment in snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
Take Home Points:
- Sleep nasal endoscopy is a method to assess a patient’s level of obstruction in a sleeping state
- This test can help determine single level versus multilevel obstruction in patients with obstructive sleep apnea, and therefore, the ideal surgical intervention.
- Those with multilevel obstruction are less likely to benefit from uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP).
