Abstract

Given the prevalence of sleep disorders and sleep deprivation in modern societies, and the correlation between sleepiness and work and driving accidents, the excessive daytime sleepiness is an important issue. Although many studies showed that patients with untreated Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) and narcolepsy have an higher risk for driving accidents, neither the European Community regulation nor the Italian law of the driving licence mention restrictions for these disorders. In 2010 the scientific association COMLAS (Association of legal medicine professionals of the Italian National Health Service) published the Guidelines for the examination by the Local Medical Commissions. The author presented the guidelines to assess the fitness to drive of people with OSAS or narcolepsy. The proposed criteria, set up in collaboration with the Commission "Sleepiness, Safety and Transportation" of the Italian Association of Sleep Medicine (AIMS), can be considered among the most advanced internationally.
