OSA and COVID-19 topics by demand

Sleep Week's respiratory session focuses on COVID-19 and obstructive sleep apnoea topics requested by members of the Respiratory Council. Presentations include the use of NIV in non-COVID patients during the pandemic.

Charles Bouchard from Loyola University Chicago presents on ocular manifestations of sleep apnoea. His presentation will outline the anterior segment (cornea, orbit, eyelids) and posterior segment (glaucoma, retina, neurological) manifestations of obstructive sleep apnoea. Cardiologist Omar Farouque outlines the pathophysiological links between OSA and atrial fibrillation (AF). The impact of treating OSA on management of AF will be explored including the potential value of screening for OSA in AF patients.
