METHODS: We performed a retrospective chart review of 90 patients that underwent elective surgery at Henry Ford Hospital with a STOPBANG score of 6 or greater (signifying higher risk for OSA). We excluded patients with New York Heart Association III-IV heart failure, severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, neuromuscular disease, and drug or alcohol abuse. The primary endpoint of the study were the number of complications from the date of surgery to 6 months postoperatively. These endpoints include 30-day mortality, re-admission, re-intubations, pneumonia, myocardial infarction, ICU transfers, delirium, wound healing and venous thromboembolism (VTE). Kruskal-Wallis and t-test statistical analysis were performed.
