Preoperative evaluation forms an important part of perioperative management. Missed diagnosis can increase perioperative morbidity as a chance of preoperative optimisation is missed. Though obstructive sleep apnoea is common and can be easily diagnosed, it remains undiagnosed due to lack of awareness. If identified preoperatively, we can confirm and quantify the diagnosis with a sleep study and prepare an appropriate perioperative management plan, thus reducing perioperative morbidity and mortality. Hence all the anaesthesiologists should have adequate knowledge of the clinical presentation of OSA. Here we describe diagnosis and anaesthesia management of OSA.

Keywords: Obstructive sleep apnoea, Preoperative, Optimisation, Perioperative management undiagnosed
