Abstract :

M orbidly obese patients diagnosed with Sleep apnea syndrome have pre and post operative complications from respiratory impairment related to obesity as well as sleep apnea. Respiratory problems in morbidly obese patients include large thick neck, small upper airway, restrictive lung disease, deconditioning, hypoventilation, decrease static pulmonary compliance and thrombolic embolic disease. Problems associated with sleep apnea patients include chronic hypoxia and hypercapnia, reintubation, pulmonary hypertension, right and left heart failure, cardiac arrythmias, TIA and strokes, over sedation and pain control. We recommend intubation awake or with light sedation. Paralytic drugs should be avoided prior to intubation if possible. Extubation is recommended in the recovery room or in the ICU when the patient is awake. Noninvasive ventilation with CPAP/ BiAPAP may be necessary post extubation
