The obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome occurs predominantly in men. To determine the effect of testosterone on ventilatory function and whether testosterone may play a role in the development of obstructive apnoea, we performed waking ventilatory drive studies and sleep studies in five hypogonadal men. These androgen‐deficient subjects were studied both while receiving no treatment and after six weeks of testosterone replacement therapy (testosterone oenanthate 200 mg i.m. every 2 weeks… Expand
Influence of testosterone on breathing during sleep.
TLDR
It is suggested that testosterone contributes to sleep-disordered breathing through mechanisms independent of anatomic changes in the upper airway, as shown in subjects on and off testosterone-replacement therapy. Expand
The effects of testosterone on ventilatory responses in men with obstructive sleep apnea: a randomised, placebo‐controlled trial
TLDR
Time‐dependent alterations in ventilatory recruitment threshold may therefore mediate the time‐dependent changes in sleep breathing observed with testosterone. Expand
The short-term effects of high-dose testosterone on sleep, breathing, and function in older men.
TLDR
Short-term administration of high-dose testosterone shortens sleep and worsens sleep apnea in older men but did not alter physical, mental, or metabolic function, and upper airway dimensions did not change. Expand
LOW TESTOSTERONE AND SLEEP APNEA : ROLE OF FATIGUE
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common condition among middle-aged men, affecting approximately 25% of men over the age of 40 (apnea hypopnea index [AHI] >5). When looking at more subtle divisionsExpand
The association of testosterone levels with overall sleep quality, sleep architecture, and sleep-disordered breathing.
TLDR
Low total testosterone levels are associated with less healthy sleep in older men, and this association is largely explained by adiposity. Expand
Impact of long-term gonadotropin replacement treatment on sleep in men with idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism.
TLDR
IHH in men is associated with a higher percentage of slow-wave-sleep and one-year GnRT slightly decreases SWS and does not induce OSA, however, in patients with OSA at baseline long-term GnRT should be exercised with caution. Expand
Testosterone and estradiol are not affected in male and female patients with obstructive sleep apnea treated with continuous positive airway pressure
TLDR
No effects of long-term CPAP treatment were found on testosterone or estradiol levels in OSAS patients of either gender, and this is the first study analyzing the effects of CPAP on testosterone and Estradiol and in both genders. Expand
Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Testosterone Deficiency
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a relatively common chronic sleep disorder characterized by repeated episodes of complete or partial upper airway obstruction during sleep, resulting in oxygenExpand
Neuroendocrine dysfunction in sleep apnea: reversal by continuous positive airways pressure therapy.
TLDR
It is concluded that sleep apnea causes reversible neuroendocrine dysfunction in men, which is manifested by decreased IGF-I, testosterone, and SHBG levels, as indicated by the nadir levels of arterial oxygen desaturation and the rate of desaturation episodes. Expand
Effect of Testosterone on the Apneic Threshold in Females During NREM Sleep Final Accepted Version
Abstract The hypocapnic apneic threshold (AT) is lower in females relative to males. To test the hypothesis that the gender difference in AT was due to testosterone, we determined the AT during NREMExpand

Induction of the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome in a woman by exogenous androgen administration.
TLDR
Structural and functional measurements indicate that androgens exert a permissive or necessary action on the structural configuration of the oropharynx that predisposes to obstruction during sleep. Expand
Menopause, medroxyprogesterone and breathing during sleep.
TLDR
Although several subjects appeared to show improvement with MPG, only the maximum duration of apnea was significantly reduced the second night (p less than 0.03), it is suggested that the findings of a single night of sleep monitoring may be representative of other nights of sleep. Expand
Sleep apnea, hypopnea and oxygen desaturation in normal subjects. A strong male predominance.
TLDR
Abnormal breathing and oxygen desaturation during sleep in subjects with chronic obstructive lung disease of the syndrome of hypersomnolence with periodic breathing may represent the superimposition of smoking or obesity on a normal tendency to snoring and oxygen Desaturation in men. Expand
Sleep-disordered breathing and oxygen desaturation in obese patients.
TLDR
The two patients with the most frequent episodes of apnea and lowest oxygen saturation had a clinical picture consistent with the pickwickian syndrome, which supports the relationship previously noted between the degree of hypoxia and the presence of hypersomnolence. Expand
Respiratory drives and exercise in menstrual cycles of athletic and nonathletic women.
TLDR
The luteal phase of the menstrual cycle induced increases in ventilatory drives and exercise ventilation in both athletes and controls, but the athletes, in contrast to controls, demonstrated no significant decrease in exercise performance in the lutenal phase. Expand
Ventilatory response to medroxyprogesterone acetate in normal subjects: time course and mechanism.
TLDR
It is concluded that [H+] in plasma and CSF is a function rather than a cause of ventilator acclimatization to MPA, and MPA-related materials are capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier and could potentially exert their ventilatory stimulant effect by some central mechanism. Expand
The use and misuse of androgens.
TLDR
Androgens have been tried in a variety of clinical situations other than male hypogonadism in the hopes that the nonvirilizing actions would outweigh any detectable side effects, and the only disorders in which a salutary effect has been documented are hereditary angioneurotic edema and some patients with anemia due to failure off the bone marrow.

Follicle-stimulating hormone and human spermatogenesis.
TLDR
It is concluded that spermatogenesis as assessed by sperm counts, motilities, and morphologies may be reinitiated and maintained at normal levels in men with undetectable blood FSH levels and urinary excretion less than that of prepubertal children. Expand
Hypoxic ventilatory drive in normal man.
TLDR
The data suggest, but do not prove, that oxygen tension in chemoreceptor tissue as in part determined by circulatory oxygen delivery may be an important factor in controlling the ventilatory response to hypoxia, as a continuous curve relating alveolar oxygen tension and minute ventilation. Expand
