Abstract

Sleep-related breathing disorders have been associated with increased perioperative morbidity and mortality. The respective patients are at risk during two independent periods. Besides an early period, characterised by the influence of anaesthetics, patients are at risk also during a late period, which is characterised by nocturnal desaturation and disturbances of the cardiovascular system, caused by interference with the sleep architecture, especially of the REM sleep. To assure a safe perioperative management, a close monitoring (O2 saturation and pCO2) and the option for non-invasive ventilation have to be guaranteed.
