The Effect of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure on Basal Metabolism Rate in Patients with Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome

DOI: 
10:7727/wimj.2015.489
Synopsis: 
Basal metabolism rate (BMR) is defined as the energy consumption required for maintaining body functions and metabolic activities. Previous studies have shown significantly higher energy consumption in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) compared to healthy subjects. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of short-term continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment on basal metabolism rate in patients with severe OSAS.

ABSTRACT
