Question ref. S5W-29993
Asked by: Richard Lyle, Uddingston and Bellshill, Scottish National Party
Date lodged: 16 June 2020

Question

To ask the Scottish Government how many people in each NHS board area have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnoea, also broken down by how many have been given a continuous positive airway pressure machine.

Current status: Answered by Jeane Freeman on 15 July 2020


Answer

The following tables provide numbers of patients admitted to hospital with a diagnosis of sleep apnoea and the number of these patients receiving treatment using non-invasive ventilation, including continuous positive airways pressure. Until 2020 it has not been possible to identify continuous positive airways pressure separately. Information is shown by NHS board area from 2015 to 2019 in tables 1 and 2.

Table 1: Number of patients admitted to hospital with a diagnosis of sleep

apnoea at least once during each year, and recorded as receiving treatment using

non-invasive ventilation; 2015 to 2019
