Treatment of obstructive sleep apnea with nasal continuous positive airway pressure mandates simultaneous increases of both inspiratory and expiratory positive airway pressures to eliminate apneas as well as nonapneic oxyhemoglobin desaturation events. We hypothesized that the forces acting to collapse the upper airway during inspiration and expiration are of different magnitudes and that obstructive sleep-disordered breathing events (including apneas, hypopneas and nonapneic desaturation… CONTINUE READING
