Sleep apnea syndrome in the elderly

Sleep apnea syndrome (SAS) is the second largest sleep disorder after insomnia. It can cause severe hypoxemia and sleep disorder. It is closely related to the occurrence of diseases such as hypertension, arrhythmia, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases and respiratory failure. A few patients can die suddenly at night. In addition, due to daytime sleepiness, impaired memory and reaction ability, patients' working ability decreased and the incidence of accidents increased. For this reason, SAS has become an important part of a new frontier discipline - Sleep Medicine, and has been paid more and more attention by the medical circles at home and abroad. In recent years, with the wide application of noninvasive ventilation technology, the treatment of SAS has also made a breakthrough.
