Sleep apnea is an independent pathology and a powerful stress for the organism. Apnea affects different systems. 44 patients with obstructive apnea (age 45.4±5 years) were under observation. Control group consisted of healthy subjects aged 36.3±5 years. Rheological status in the group of patients was as follows: RBC aggregability index – 42.7±7.2, RBC deformability index was 2.23±0.06, plasma viscosity – 1.27±0.03 and Hct – 39±5. The same parameters in the control group were: RBC aggregability index – 25.0±3.0, RBC deformability index – 2.23±0.02, plasma viscosity – 1.25±0.02, Hct – 45±3. The obtained data allow to recommend clinicians include disaggregants in standard treatment of obstructive sleep apnea.
