Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Depression in the Elderly

A 71 year old man was taken to see his physician because of excessive sleepiness and a loss of interest in his usual activities. According to his daughter, the patient’s symptoms began 6 months prior, following the death of his wife. His doctor started him on an antidepressant, but after 5 months of treatment with no signs of improvement, he was placed into assisted living by his daughter. Shortly thereafter, one of the nurses at the patient’s facility called his doctor to report that his nightly snoring was so loud, it could be heard down the hall.
