This prospective cohort study aimed to assess the phenotypic characteristics of OSA patients and their pattern of antihypertensive drugs consumption. The investigators also aimed to investigate a hypothetical association between ongoing anti-hypertensive regimen and Blood pressure control rates in these patients. Additionally, the investigators were also interested in trying to understand if the control of OSA may be influenced by the use of different classes of anti-hypertensive drugs.
