These hypoxia/reoxygenation episodes may cause generation of reactive oxygen species. Reactive oxygen species are toxic to biomembranes and may lead to the peroxidation of lipids. We tested the hypothesis that obstructive sleep apnea is linked to increased oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation. In order to identify target ...
