Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is the temporary cessation of breathing during sleep because of a narrowing or closure of the pharyngeal airway. Untreated OSA can result in daytime sleepiness that affects cognitive function, mood and quality of life and can increase the risks of road traffic, work-related accidents and cardiovascular disease and strokes.

In this paper, OHE’s Nancy Devlin and Yan Feng join David Parkin from King’s College London in analyzing characteristics of the EQ-5D indexing process that may obscure useful, and important, information about health states.
