Abstract
Purpose: To develop a physician screening index for the oral and facial assessment of the orthodontic treatment-need in pediatric patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) that may diminish the severity of their OSA symptoms. Methods: Based on the available literature and WHO guidelines for index development, a draft index was produced, and subjected to multiple iterative revisions based on the feedback from: 1) the Index Development Group; 2) the External Review Group; and 3) the Steering Committee. Once the index was formalized, it was subjected to reliability testing Results: Based on the feedback from the Index Development Group, the External Review Group and the Steering Committee, an index has been developed that is simple, easy to understand and easy to use. The index also exhibits a fair to substantial inter-rater reliability, and moderate to almost perfect intra-rater reliability. The orthodontic residents scored better than the medical residents in the reliability tests and took less time to use the index. The average time to use the index on 15 cases was 17:14min. Conclusions: This is a much needed, simple, and easy to use index that is reliable among orthodontic residents and among medical residents.
