We examined the influence of apnea type and sleep stage on the severity of apnea-induced desaturations in 32 patients with a sleep apnea syndrome. The individual postapneic desaturations were evaluated by a desaturation curve; this curve was built by plotting the fall in SaO2 after an apnea against this apnea's length for each apneic event during the whole night recording. We considered only apneas where the preapneic SaO2 was greater than 90% and the lowest SaO2 value after the apnea was equal… CONTINUE READING
