Role of Nocturnal Oxygen Therapy in Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Effect of Chronic Supplemental Oxygen in Sleep Apnea (3)

A major goal in demonstrating an objective response to chronic nasal oxygen therapy would be to show hemodynamic improvement in sleep apnea patients with cardiovascular abnormalities resulting from recurrent nocturnal hypoxemia. Due to the inherent difficulty of long-term cardiovascular studies, including the invasiveness and time required for long-term follow-up, there…
