Abstract

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), which increases the risk of stroke abd death by 2-3 times compared to those without OSA, is a common disease in general practice. Such risks can arise from several factors, such as hypertension, arrthythmias and atherosclerosis, which are prevalent in OSA. Treatment, with continuous positive airway pressure while sleeping, not only helps to reduce the risk of stroke but also improves quality of life and the ability to do daily activities of patients with stroke
