Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have been known to be associated with atherosclerosis and hypoxia which was suggested to have an important role in this process by the way of increased oxidative stress. In the present study, we aimed to evaluate the effects of nocturnal hypoxia pattern (intermittent versus sustained) on serum lipid peroxidation and paraoxonase (PON) activity.
