Effects of upper-airway stimulation on sleep architecture in patients with obstructive sleep apnea
Sleep and Breathing — Hofauer B, et al. | June 05, 2017
The alterations in sleep architecture were compared during the diagnostic polysomnography and the post–implantation polysomnography in upper–airway stimulation (UAS) in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients enrolled in this study. Based on the findings, sleep architecture was significantly altered in patients with OSA and sufficient treatment with UAS could be observed. Treatment with UAS was shown to attenuate the amount of time spent in N1–sleep and the observed rebound of REM sleep was also viewed as a potential marker of the efficacy of UAS on sleep architecture.
