Severe OSA, which has an Apnea Hypopnea Index (AHI)≥30, is a major risk factor for stroke compared to less severe OSA,
We also emphasize the more thorough evaluation and control of OSA in order to prevent the disabling side effects of a stroke,
OSA should always be considered when assessing a patient with transient ischemic attacks (TIA).
The severity of OSA has a bidirectional relationship with the severityof a patient’s initial symptoms of stroke and the clinical outcomes after stroke occurrence.
One prospective longitudinal study examining the elderly (age 70–100) shows that patients with severe OSA (AHI≥30) demonstrated higher incidence of stroke compared to patients without OSA.
Stroke patients with OSA have a worse prognosis, experiencing a more prolonged hospitalization and spending more time in rehabilitation
The severity of the patient’s OSA apnea-hypopnea index (AHI≥30) plays an important role in the development of ischemic stroke
