Synopsis: 
Basal metabolism rate 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 apnoea syndrome (OSAS) compared to healthy subjects. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of short-term continuous positive airway pressure treatment on the basal metabolism rate in patients with severe OSAS.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To assess the effect of the continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment on basal metabolism rate (BMR) in patients with severe obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS).
