STUDY OBJECTIVE To study the spectrum of inspiratory flow signal shapes in patients with partial upper airway obstruction during sleep. DESIGN We identified seven different inspiratory flow shapes and determined their frequencies in two groups of patients (10 postmenopausal women and 19 men after surgical treatment for sleep apnea) and in 9 control subjects. SETTING Sleep research unit, Department of Physiology, University of Turku, Finland. MEASUREMENTS AND RESULTS Nasal flow was… Expand
