This book provides detailed, specific information regarding the non-surgical and surgical treatment modalities currently employed for the management of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with the aim of enabling practitioners to achieve optimal outcomes in individual patients. The book opens by offering clear guidance on the medical and surgical evaluation of patients with OSA. Coverage of medical management options includes positive airway pressure therapy, positional therapy, the use of mandibular repositioning devices, along with other treatment modalities. Surgical interventions are then exhaustively described in a series of chapters that document the approaches to specific sites of obstruction. Information is included on operative airway management, and the concluding chapter addresses the care of pediatric patients. Modern Management of Obstructive Sleep Apnea will be a valuable asset for oral and maxillofacial surgeons, otolaryngologists, and sleep medicine physicians
