Association of Obstructive Sleep Apnea with Nocturnal Hypoxemia in Metabolic-Associated Fatty Liver Disease Patients: A Cross-sectional Analysis of Record-based Data
CONCLUSION: MAFLD patients have higher prevalence and greater severity of OSA and worse nocturnal desaturation parameters as compared to non-MAFLD patients.
