Sex differences in obstructive sleep apnoea.

Maria R Bonsignore, Tarja Saaresranta, Renata L Riha,

Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and obstructive sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome (OSAHS) have long been considered predominantly male-related conditions. The clinical presentation of sleep disordered breathing in females differs from males and can vary with age and physiological status, e.g. menopause and pregnancy. Overall, females appear to be more symptomatic, with lower ... Read more >>
