Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a syndrome characterized by repetitive episodes of airway obstruction during sleep, which result in low oxygen level in the blood and bad sleep quality. Both of these effects are implicated in medical, neurological and cognitive disorders in subjects with OSA. The purpose of this study is to examine how OSA affects medical and neurobehavioral outcomes after gastric bypass surgery for weight loss in morbidly obese patients.

Further study details as provided by Stanford University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The effect of preoperative OSA on the long term neurocognitive function after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery for weight loss in morbidly obese patients [ Time Frame: 1 year after surgery ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The effect of preoperative neurocognitive impairment on the long term neurocognitive function after RYGB [ Time Frame: 1 year after surgery ]
  • The effect of preoperative neurocognitive impairment on the weight loss function after RYGB and how this relates to the presence of OSA [ Time Frame: 1 year after surgery ]
