Why do I need a sleep study if I am planning on a gastric bypass surgery or any other major surgery?

 

All surgery involves risk. However, if you are overweight and have symptoms of sleep apnea, anesthesia may place you at even greater risk, particularly during recovery following surgery, when the residual effects of anesthesia may worsen any tendency to stop breathing. Therefore, it is important to know if you have sleep apnea prior to major surgery and to treat this problem with CPAP before your surgery.
