OBJECTIVE The intrinsic properties such as baseline caliber and compliance of upper airway are thought to be important in the pathogenesis of obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS). Our study was designed to detect the difference of baseline caliber (morphological property) of pharynx during both wakefulness and sleep, and difference of… CONTINUE READING
