NOGUEIRA, Facundo et al. Guías prácticas de diagnóstico y tratamiento del síndrome de apneas e hipopneas obstructivas del sueño: Actualización 2019: Sección Sueño, Oxigenoterapia y Tratamientos Crónicos Domiciliarios. Asociación Argentina de Medicina Respiratoria. Rev. am. med. respir. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.1, pp.59-90. ISSN 1852-236X.

Sleep apnea is one of the most relevant chronic respiratory disorders in the general population, given its prevalence, the effects it produces in patients and their impact on public health. In 2013, the first Practical Guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome of the AAMR were published. Since then, a significant volume of scientific evidence on these disorders has been generated, which has motivated the updating of these Practical Guidelines. A working group of trained professionals with experience in sleep breathing disorders reviewed the literature and updated the concepts included in the 2013 guidelines. Clinical aspects, diagnostic and severity criteria, risk factors, consequences and diagnostic strategy are addressed, as well as therapeutic alternatives and practical aspects of their implementation. The main objective was to generate practical guidelines that constitute a reference for the training of professionals, the care of patients with this disease and the generation of public policies.
