This book aims to bring the reader to the revelation that body position is important in the aetiology of sleep-disordered breathing. This aspect of its aetiology has been neglected and overlooked for too long. Positional-dependent obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can be treated effectively with new forms of positional therapy. I hope the reader will recognize that there is much room for improvement in diagnosis and treatment of OSA. This book will provide the reader with the tools to implement positional therapy in clinical practice. I hope it will serve as motivation for fantastic presentations and inspiring manuscripts on well-conducted research.
