Sleep apnea occurs when the airway closes off partially or completely during sleep. Obesity is a risk factor for sleep apnea. In the general adult population, 24% of men and 9% of women have sleep apnea. Nearly 100% of men and about 67% of women who are evaluated for bariatric surgery have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a serious medical condition that needs to be treated prior to surgery. Treatment consists of a mask worn over the nose that is connected to a machine. The machine continuously blows air pressure to keep the airway open (hence the name CPAP- Continuous Positive Airway Pressure). Weight loss following surgery may cure sleep apnea in some patients, but others will continue to have sleep apnea that will need to be treated..
