Driving with Sleep Apnea

Tips for Drivers with Obstructive Sleep Apnea

These are some recommendable things drivers suffering from obstructive sleep apnea that are not under any kind of treatment should take into account:

  • Patients with sleep apnea who are untreated cannot drive.
  • Patients with obstructive sleep apnea treated and controlled in successive medical examinations, and always with a favorable report, will be able to obtain or to renew the driving license.
  • Physicians can be of great help by taking an interest in this field of medicine and by investigating this possibility in patients who come for consultation, even if they do so for another reason.
