Effects of long-term nasal continuous positive airway pressure on C-reactive protein in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome



Effects of long-term nasal continuous positive airway pressure on C-reactive protein in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome



Internal Medicine 44(8): 899-900



Serum levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) were measured in 9 consecutive patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) before and after nasal continuous positive airway pressure treatment. CRP levels only displayed significant correlations with body mass index (BMI) before treatment. No significant changes were observed in BMI - and CRP levels after 9 months of treatment.
