Evaluate the true diagnosed and undiagnosed burden of obstructive sleep apnea

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) is grossly under diagnosed in Primary Care with potentially important consequences. Diagnosis is open to “patient manipulation”, e.g. potential to lie during screening for OSA; however, in the UK there may be opportunity to work with dentists who have a low tech alternatives to CPAP and to set up an out of hospital services in order to quantify the likely burden/prevalence of OSA compared with the diagnosed burden/prevalence (i.e. quantify the scale of undiagnosed OSA).
