Q. What does the Sleep Medicine MD do during an initial consultation?

A. The Sleep MD will do a physical assessment including upper airway exam, review co-morbidities, review of signs and symptoms relevant to sleep disorders including such things as restless legs, excessive daytime sleepiness etc. Patients will likely complete a form or questionnaire about their sleep, the Sleep MD will review it with them. If the likelihood of OSA is high, depending on their insurance coverage, either an in lab all or split night study will be ordered or a home sleep apnea diagnostic test. RW
