Abstract

The results of cognitive tests in a group of obstructive sleep apnea patients free from therapy studied at the time of diagnosis yielded a large rate of pathological results, particularly in the working memory and attention (Stroop test). Recurrent cerebral hypoperfusion and diminished oxygen arterial tension are the main mechanisms underlying these results.
