Preoperative STOP-BANG Scores and Postoperative Delirium and Coma in Thoracic Surgery Patients
The authors measured the risk of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) preoperatively in patients undergoing thoracic surgery using the “STOP-BANG” questionnaire. A total of 76% of patients were considered intermediate to high risk for OSA, and this group had a longer duration of ICU delirium/coma than the low risk group.
