Answer

Chai-Coetzer et al developed a simplified, two-stage model for identifying OSA in primary care. The model used a screening questionnaire followed by home sleep monitoring. [146] The two-stage model was found to be accurate in identifying OSA in primary care and may allow expedited care for patients.
