Improvement of EEG slowing in OSAS after CPAP treatment
Journal of Psychosomatic Research, 05/10/2012
Lee SD et al. – Electroencephalography (EEG) slowing was decreased across all cerebral regions in patients with severe obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) after continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment accompanied by improvement of cognitive functions involving several brain areas. These findings suggest that CPAP can induce improvement of cerebral function in OSAS without regional specificity.
