The Task Force posted a draft recommendation statement and draft evidence review on screening for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in asymptomatic adults. The draft statement concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of screening for OSA.

What are your thoughts and lived experiences? Would early screening for sleep apnea have changed the health and well-being for you or someone you know?
