I saw this interesting article and wanted to share and know if your hospital screens for OSA prior to surgery and why all hospitals don't do the same. https://sleepapneasolutions.ca/patient-education/patients-undergoing-surgical-interventions-and-sleep-apnea

Hi AffableTanDog4581. I had some minor surgery about a year ago, and my hospital did screen me for sleep apnea and requested that I bring my CPAP machine with me on the day of surgery. I have heard from others that this is becoming more common, which is great news.
