AIMS Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is associated with increased cardiovascular risk and diabetes independent of obesity. We investigated whether adipose tissue dysfunction is exacerbated due to increased tissue hypoxia. METHODS Adipose tissue (AT) oxygenation was measured with a Clarke-type electrode (pATO2) in 16 men with OSAS before and after 4 months of continuous positive airway pressure therapy (CPAP) and in BMI-matched controls. Oxygenation was simultaneously monitored in… CONTINUE READING
