Abstract:Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a sleep disorder which can increase all-cause mortality by threefold in severe cases and its prevalence is estimated to 19. Patients seeking treatment for this disorder might undergo different procedures before receiving a long-term treatment, but the task of ordering these procedures in an efficient manner is non-trivial. In this research, the modelling tool UPPAAL was used to construct and simulate models of different management protocols for Obstructive Sleep Apnea. We compared and analyzed 14 different protocols by key performance indicators such as time, costs and efficacy in providing a treatment. We concluded that features of a good protocol are: starting with a treatment and including a diagnostic test that can be double-checked with a sleep study and with a successful treatment.
