Study Summary

This trial will study if lung volume has an effect on sleep apnea severity by observing patients during a drug induced sleep endoscopy. Pulmonary Function Testing (PFT) is a treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) that has been approved by the FDA for a different condition. No patients in this trial will receive a placebo.
