Neurological Institute Outcomes
Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome and Bariatric Surgery
Relationship of a Composite Outcome With OaSH Postbariatric Surgery (N = 1665)
2011 – 2018
The relationship of obesity-associated sleep hypoventilation (OaSH) and adverse postoperative outcomes postbariatric surgery was studied. Patients undergoing polysomnography (PSG) prior to bariatric surgery at Cleveland Clinic from 2011 to 2018 were retrospectively examined.
AHI = Apnea-Hypopnea Index, BMI = body mass index, OaSH = obesity-associated sleep hypoventilation
