Sleep Apnea Syndrome and psychiatry

M.A.R. Bosschaert, J.A. den Boer

The Sleep Apnea Syndrome (SAS) has recently become a topic much discussed in the scientific literature. Little attention has been given to psychiatric and psychosocial implications of this syndrome. In this article symptomatology, epidemiology, pathophysiology and therapy of SAS are reviewed with special reference to psychiatry. It is concluded that SAS should be considered in the differential diagnosis of several psychiatric disorders.
