OBJECTIVE Determine the site(s) of upper airway obstruction and the influence of sleep stage on the pattern of obstruction with upper airway (UA) pressure measurement. Analyses the clinical value of UA pressure measurement and it's influenced factors. METHODS 30 OSAS patients underwent UA pressure measurement during polysomnography. Multisensory pressure catheters with five solid-state ultraminiature sensors were insert through patients' upper airway to esophagus, The sensors were located at… CONTINUE READING
