Ocular blood flow in patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS
There is not much data on the prevalence of OSA
in the Indian population, and hence this study was conducted to estimate the prevalence of OSA
in Odisha population using Epworth Sleepiness Scale.
However, nocturia can signify possible contribution of numerous systemic disorders, such as diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, anorexia nervosa, congestive heart failure causing peripheral edema, hypertension, obesity, renal disorders, and OSAS
We also explored whether the conclusions about each of the research questions and hypotheses differed when we examined the specific OSAs
versus the OSA
subtypes or when we examined the full sample versus only the subsample of participants with the respective type of experience.
The terms used in the search were as follows: obstructive sleep apnoea OR OSA
; diabetic retinopathy OR DR.
Several studies stratified patients based on OSA
severity (mild, moderate, or severe) and reported grouped RV function data within each stratum.
 Higher prevalence of OSA
is seen in men than women, and it is estimated to have a male to female ratio of between 3:1 and 5:1.
This study was carried out with a total of 106 subjects including 50 OSAS
56 non-OSAS control groups.
Screening for OSA
symptoms is recommended at every routine health visit.
While the golden standard of management in OSA
has been administrated of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) during sleep, modalities such as treatment with mandibular advancement device (MAD) and surgical correction of the upper airway through mandibular advancement have been useful to eliminate the underlying cause.
A total of 20 (71.4%) patients had severe OSA
and eight (28.6%) had moderate OSA
can be an underlying cause of nocturia, although it is infrequently recognized, even in the field of urology.
