1.  Uvular Edema Secondary to Snoring Under Deep Sedation 
Anesthesia Progress  2006;53(1):13-16.
A 57-year-old male with a documented history of obstructive sleep apnea with loud snoring received deep intravenous sedation with midazolam, fentanyl, ketamine, and propofol infusion and a left interscalene brachial plexus nerve block for a left biceps tendon repair. Loud snoring during the case was noted. On the second postoperative day, he was observed to have significant uvular edema. After due consideration of the various elements in the differential diagnosis, it was concluded that negative pressure trauma from deep snoring during the sedation was the most likely etiology.
