Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Systemic inflammation is important in pathophysiology of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and its comorbidity. Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (N/L ratio) is a novel inflammation index that has been shown to independently predict poor clinical outcomes. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the role of N/L ratio in OSA patients and comparing with other well-known inflammatory marker, C-reactive protein (CRP).
