SESSION TITLE: Sleep Disorders 2

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and Chronic Pain Syndrome (CPS) are both very common conditions and may occur frequently by chance alone. We studied the interaction between these disorders.

METHODS: Veterans with CPS admitted to a referral pain rehabilitation center underwent polysomnography on presentation. Three groups of patients were compared: patients with CPS taking either opiates (O group), tramadol (T group) or none of these agents (C group). Demographics, Epworth Sleepiness Score (ESS) and sleep parameters were recorded and compared among these groups for statistical significance.
