The Obstructive Sleep Apnea Death and Near Miss Registry

July 11, 2014 09:48 AM

The Society of Anesthesia and Sleep Medicine (SASM) has partnered with the Anesthesia Quality Institute to launch a new Registry: The Obstructive Sleep Apnea Death and Near Miss Registry. The goal of this new registry is to identify perioperative recurring patterns or themes underlying death or adverse events suspected to be related to obstructive sleep apnea with the ultimate aim of risk prevention and improved anesthesia patient safety. The Registry seeks to obtain a large number of case reports to achieve these goals.  Any medical provider can submit a case, but patients are not allowed to submit cases.

Case report instructions and forms are available on the OSA Death and Near Miss Registry website.
