To assess the autonomic system in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), the sympathetic skin response (SSR) and the R-R interval variation (RRIV) tests were studied in 34 OSAS patients and in 32 healthy controls. The aim of the study was to evaluate the sympathetic and parasympathetic system function in OSAS, to define the pattern of autonomic abnormalities found in SSR and RRIV in patients, and to analyze the usefulness of both tests in paraclinical assessment of the dysautonomia, compared… CONTINUE READING
