Among men, the mean apnea/hypopnea index score (representing the total number of either apnea or hypopnea episodes/hr of sleep) was 39.
Researcher Reena Mehra, assistant professor of medicine at the Case Western Reserve School of Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio, and colleagues examined plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1), fibrinogen and D-dimer, relative to the severity of SDB as defined by the apnea/hypopnea index (AHI) in 537 subjects.
The most striking study finding was that although there was no difference in cognitive function between the apo E [epsilon]4-positive and -negative groups overall, apo E [epsilon]4-positive individuals with sleep apnea as defined by a higher apnea/hypopnea index had lower memory scores as reflected by worse performance on the delayed recall and short-term recall components of the Rey test.
