This suggests a hormonal influence on sleeping respiratory pattern. We therefore studied respiratory rhythm during sleep in 11 hypogonadal males both on and off testosterone-replacement therapy. In four subjects the anatomy (computerized tomography) and airflow resistance of the upper airway were also determined on… CONTINUE READING
