Abstract

Background

Obstructive sleep apnea is a common respiratory disorder that can have negative effects on health and quality of life. Positive pressure therapy (CPAP) is the primary treatment. There is a lack of consensus on the risk of postoperative CPAP after endoscopic sinus or skull base surgery. We present a proof‐of‐concept cadaver model for measuring sinonasal pressure delivered by CPAP.
