The utility of acoustic pharyngometry in treatment of obstructive sleep apnea patients with expansion sphincter pharyngoplasty surgery
ConclusionImprovement in the upper airway anatomy by expansion sphincter pharyngoplasty can be clearly demonstrated using acoustic pharyngometry. Acoustic pharyngometry findings are quite similar in patients with successful and unsuccessful outcomes; therefore, pharyngometry findings cannot be used to predict surgical success; and surgical success cannot be solely attributed to the changes in MCA and TPV.

Addressing rural health disparity with a novel hospital sleep apnea screening: Precision of a high-resolution pulse oximeter in screening for sleep-disordered breathing
CONCLUSION: This study demonstrates that use of HRPO in screening for SDB in hospitalized patients from rural communities is as accurate as PM and may serve as a simple cost-effective tool to address sleep health disparities in these regions with significant health inequity.
