BACKGROUND Patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) are always exposed to intermittent hypoxia and reoxygenation. The metabolic syndrome (MetS) and OSAS are also known to accelerate atherosclerosis, diabetes, and dyslipidemia. Therefore, nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy may have beneficial effects in patients with the MetS and OSAS. HYPOTHESIS This study in patients with the MetS and OSAS tested the validity of the hypothesis that chronic CPAP therapy… CONTINUE READING
