    Introduction: Chronic intermittent hypoxia (CIH) is a feature of respiratory diseases such as obstructive sleep apnoea and apnoea of prematurity. There is a relative paucity of information on the effects of CIH on respiratory muscle physiology despite the clinical relevance. We have shown that...

    Background. Obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) is characterized by repeated breathing pauses caused by upper airway collapse during sleep, leading to intermittent hypoxemia, sleep fragmentation and autonomic disfunction. The gold standard for the treatment of OSAHS is ventilation...
