Basis of sex-specific therapeutic responses to obstructive sleep apnea: oxidative stress inflammation and vascular function: at-risk postmenopausal women

Brief description of study

The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the differences between men and women before and after Autotitrating Positive Airway Pressure (APAP) therapy for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (ASA). We will evaluate these differences using the results obtained during the sleep study/polysomnogram (PSG) as well as the blood results. Data collected from the peripheral blood tone EndoPat assessment and surveys will also be analyzed. Additionally, we will check the percentage of fat in your body using a body composition scan – dual-energy X-ray (DEXA) scan.
