Depression and Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are the major associated comorbidities. OSA is a rapidly growing problem in the society that is connected to the rising rates of obesity; at the same time, the depression rate is also increasing day by day. Patients with OSA present with sleep problems, anxiety, and depressive symptoms, depressive patients can also present with the same symptoms. The quality of an individual's health can be improved by the early detection of the symptoms of overlapping OSA and depression. By addressing these issues early, the associated healthcare costs and burden can be reduced simultaneously.
