Analysis of slow wave activity in obstructive sleep apnea and its effects on daytime function


  • EEG markers indicative of prefrontal dysfunction reflected more sleep disruption and psychomotor vigilance test (PVT) performance in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

Why this matters

    Understanding the pathophysiology of sleepiness and how it is related to OSA is crucial in determining why a fraction of patients remains sleepy regardless of adequate treatment of OSA.
