Abstract

The general public and the medical community have become increasingly aware of the prevalence of, and morbidity and mortality associated with, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). This knowledge, recent technologic advances, and other issues have led to an increase in the use of portable recording devices intended to diagnose OSA. The American Sleep Disorders Association's Standards of Practice Committee has developed these practice parameters to guide the clinician in the appropriate use of these portable recording devices.
