Skolarus, Burke et al. find many older Americans are at risk for obstructive sleep apnea, but few are tested and treated
"OSA common in older adults, but rarely tested" - Healio. 8/9/2018.
Using NHATS data, Lesli Skolarus, James Burke and colleagues analyzed the prevalence, treatment, and risk factors for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) among community-dwelling Medicare participants 65 years of age and older. They estimated that 56% of their sample were at risk for OSA, but only 8% of the high-risk individuals had been tested for it.
