A new study reveals that while the apnea hypopnea index (AHI) is important, it is not everything. Other less well studied OSA-related variables may be more pathophysiologically relevant and offer better prediction.
The study, published in plos medicine, evaluated the relationship between OSA-related variables and the risk of cardiovascular (CV) events. Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Risk of Cardiovascular Events and All-Cause Mortality: A Decade-Long Historical Cohort Study was conducted using clinical database and health administrative data.
