Sleep quality change after upper airway surgery in obstructive sleep apnea: Electrocardiogram-based cardiopulmonary coupling analysis

Reference:
Choi JH, Thomas RJ, Suh SY, et al. Sleep quality changes after upper airway surgery in obstructive sleep apnea. Electrocardiogram-based cardiopulmonary coupling analysis. Laryngoscope 2015; 125(7): 1737-42. PMID: 25646936 DOI: 10.1002/lary.25101 

Objectives:
To test the effect of upper airway surgery on sleep quality in adults with obstructive sleep apnea with an electrocardiogram-based cardiopulmonary coupling analysis (CPC).

Conclusions:
Successful upper airway surgery can improve objective sleep quality in adult patients with OSA.

Practical Significance:
CPC metrics of sleep quality are useful to monitor therapeutic responses during long-term postoperative follow-up, as the ECG-based analysis is available as a standalone option outside laboratory polysomnography.
