Sleep apnoea

Patient input

We have formed a patient advisory group made up of representatives from sleep organisations. It has been involved in several projects, including:

  • A task force developing a standard for how home sleep monitoring devices measure respiratory events
  • A task force that produced a statement on sleep apnoea, sleepiness and driving risk
  • A task force developing a statement on diagnosis and investigation of central sleep apnoea in children
  • A task force producing guidelines on therapies other than CPAP for obstructive sleep apnoea.

The patient representatives have attended meetings, helped to define priorities, contributed their perspective and reviewed documentation.
