Lee h, lee K, Jung K, Joo E. Analysis of sleep quality after Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty in patients with obstructive sleep apnea base on cardiopulmonary coupling analysis. Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine 2016. DOI: 10.5664/jcsm.5388
Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP) is the most common surgical procedure performed for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) which may contribute to decline in quality of life. We evaluate the changes of sleep quality based on cardiopulmonary coupling (CPC) analysis in patients with OSA in treatment with UPPP.
UPPP significantly improves sleep quality in terms of PSG indices and CPC parameters.
CPC parameters may be sensitive tools to determine sleep quality for patients with OSA treated with UPPP.
