Extract

“Satires” Book 1, Horace

Horace was certainly not referring to sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (SAHS) when he composed this well-known aphorism, even though there are descriptions of this disorder dating back to antiquity. Nevertheless, it is an apt introduction to a discussion of the article by Dempsey et al appearing in this issue of CHEST (see page 840), which represents the latest contribution to an already extensive literature describing measurements of upper airway anatomy in patients with SAHS.
