PURPOSE: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has been suggested to be associated with low levels of adiponectin. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the gold standard treatment for OSA; However, previous studies assessing the effect of CPAP on adiponectin in patients with OSA yielded conflicting results. The present meta-analysis was performed to determine whether CPAP therapy could increase adiponectin levels.
