New Research Reveals ‘Concerning’ Inconsistency in UK services for Dangerous Sleep Disorder Obstructive Sleep Apnoea

Sleep disorders, especially obstructive sleep apnoea, are becoming common disorders nowadays. Recently, a new study published in the medical journal Thorax has revealed a 'significant and concerning' mismatch between the predicted prevalence of the common sleep-related respiratory condition 'obstructive sleep apnoea' (OSA), and the availability of services with which to diagnose and treat it. The research, conducted by the British Lung Foundation with clinicians from Guys and St Thomas' Hospital in London, analysed data for a range of factors commonly associated with OSA in order to predict, for the first time, variations in relative OSA prevalence between NHS administrative areas throughout the UK. The data shows a significant and concerning mismatch between areas in which high estimated relative OSA prevalence was predicted, and the availability of local sleep centres for diagnosing and treating the condition.
