[Daytime ventilatory efficiency in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome--influence of CPAP-therapy].

Abstract

BACKGROUND Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a nocturnal breathing disorder with possibly negative consequences on daytime control of ventilatory drive. We therefore investigated ventilatory efficiency, defined as the ventilatory equivalent for CO2 (VaE/VaCO2), in patients with OSAS during exercise before and under treatment with continuous… (More)
