What they each have to offer (to help you decide which patients are most appropriate for each pathway)
and what you might consider when speaking with a snorer or their partner.
Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) exist along a continuum from ‘benign’ snoring with no sleep fragmentation, through to OSA with severe daytime symptoms and the physiological consequences of recurrent oxygen deprivation.
So, now imagine you’re speaking with an adult snorer or perhaps their partner.
You ideally want to have a consultation with the snorer AND partner together, because you need to include a sleep apnoea symptom assessment and both their lives are impacted.
A sleep apnoea symptom assessment is essentially how you separate the drowsy individuals
(and those with relevant co-morbidities – we’ll get to that)
from the desperate non-drowsy, non-obese and otherwise benign snorers.
Snoring may be a symptom of OSA, as such OSA is often undiagnosed or symptomatically

As a result, there has been an extraordinary rise in the number of GP referrals for these
As a pharmacist you can help address this.
