What are the main risks of obstructive sleep apnea hypoventilation syndrome?

OSAHS is mainly characterized by sleep snoring with recurrent apnea, which often causes symptoms such as dry mouth in the morning, headache, daytime sleepiness, drowsiness, and increased nocturia, in addition to mental symptoms such as inattention, memory loss, irritability, anxiety or depression.
OSAHS can cause chronic intermittent hypoxia, hypercapnia, sympathetic nervous system activation, disruption of sleep architecture and high negative thoracic pressure in patients at night, secondary to multi-system damage (complications such as hypertension, diabetes, arrhythmia, heart attack, psychiatric abnormalities, sexual dysfunction and other diseases).
