We conducted a retrospective chart review of patients in the Jefferson Sleep Disorder Center (JSDC) consisting of 2 cohorts of patients. The first was a group of patients undergoing PSG in March, 2014 prior to institution of the UAS program. The second was a cohort of patients undergoing PSG in July 2016 after institution of the UAS program, positive initial results, readily available literature in the JSDC, and a physician in-service including details of the procedure and outcome, quality of life, and complication rate data.
We collected demographic and PSG data. We then reviewed the electronic medical record and assessed the first and second followupat the JSDC for CPAP compliance data and referral for oral appliance, body positioning device, or surgical evaluation.
