Guest: Paul Doghramji, MD


Excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is frequently underrecognized, as patients may not understand the extent of their sleepiness and EDS does not always correlate with other OSA symptoms. However, it’s important for physicians to identify EDS as it may lead to adverse consequences.
Dr. Paul P. Doghramji, Senior Family Physician at Collegeville Family Practice and Medical Director of Health Services at Ursinus College, discusses identifying EDS and the vital role assessment tools like the Epworth Sleepiness Scale can have in practice.
