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).

Synopsis: 
Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome is an independent risk factor of morbidity and mortality in cardiovascular diseases. In this study, there was significant correlation between the left ventricular diastolic dysfunction and changes in cardiac geometry in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome.

ABSTRACT

Background: The aim of this study is to evaluate the correlation of the left ventricular diastolic function and the left ventricular geometry in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) by echocardiography.
