Background: in recent days, drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) has been used to identify the site of obstruction in patients with obstructive sleep apnea. Objective: In this study our main goal is to evaluate the role of drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) in OSA patients. Method: this prospective case study was carried out at Asgar Ali Hospital from 2017-2021. Where a total of 100 patients who complained about snoring and difficulty in respiration during sleep were included as a sample population. During the study all patients undergone DISE technique. Results: Most of the patients belongs to 31-36 age group, 71% and 54% were male and 46% were female. 61% patients were overweight. Followed by 23% had hypertension, 15% had diabetes, 30% had hypothyroidism, 10% had smoking status. In addition followed by DISE techniques, snoring only seen in 12% cases where oxygen saturation was 95-97%. Followed by 3% had Central sleep apnea and 85% had complete obstruction. Besides this, 35% had Involuntary leg movement and 5% had severe restlessness. Moreover, majority site of obstruction notice in lateral wall, 30%. Followed by 15% were soft palate, 5% were tongue base and laryxs. Besides that, in 20% cases, multiple site of obstruction were noticed where 15% had lateral wall and soft palate and 5% had lateral wall, soft palate and tongue base. Conclusion: DISE has an emerging role in identifying the site and characteristics of obstructions associated with OSA. The procedure provides important information about dynamic changes in the upper airways during sleep.

Keywords: drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE), obstructive sleep apnea, snoring.
