Advances & More News / Reporting from the UK: Study Looks at Cognitive Deficits in Men With Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Men with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) without concomitant comorbidities have cognitive deficits and demonstrate diminished social cognition, according to a study published online April 6 in Frontiers in Sleep. Valentina Gnoni, M.D., from King's College London, and colleagues examined cognitive performance in a group of 27 middle-aged men (mean age, 34.0 ± 9.3 years) with untreated OSA without concomitant comorbidities compared to seven matched controls. Sixteen of the patients had mild OSA and 11 had severe OSA. Source: Advances and More licensed by HealthDay
