Healio covers the findings of a study about sleep apnea in liver clinic patients.

Daytime sleepiness and sleep quality were worse among OSA patients vs. those with just cirrhosis or controls. Nighttime sleep quality also was best in controls vs. non-OSA patients with cirrhosis and both OSA groups. Cognitive performance and proportion impaired on paper-pencil tests was worse among cirrhotic patients compared with noncirrhotic patients.
