BACKGROUND Obesity-hypoventilation syndrome (OHS) is efficiently treated by noninvasive ventilation (NIV). Sleep respiratory disturbances, reduced ventilatory drive, and excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) are commonly reported, but their relationships remain unclear. OBJECTIVES To characterize sleep breathing disorders encountered in patients with OHS, to compare low and normal CO(2) responders in terms of sleep abnormalities, subjective and objective measures of EDS, and to measure the… CONTINUE READING
