Abstract

Introduction: Obstructive sleep apnea is a near universal comorbidity among patients undergoing bariatric surgery. Long-term CPAP adherence in this population has been poorly documented, and it is unclear if CPAP therapy post operativley has any impact on distant clinical outcomes. We sought to determine the impact of residual OSA and the effect of post-operative CPAP use on long-term weight management among bariatric surgery patients.
