Description

Difficult airway management remains the leading cause of anaesthesia-related morbidity and mortality. Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a warning sign of difficult airway management. Polysomnography is the gold standard for diagnosis of this syndrome, but the STOP-BANG questionnaire is the preferred screening test. In this study, we wanted to find an answer to the question How successful is the STOP-BANG questionnaire in screening for obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) in predicting OSAS, difficult mask and difficult intubation in patients undergoing thoracic surgery?
