From: The relationship between upper airway collapse and the severity of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome: a chart review

Effect AHI Point estimate 95 % confidence limits
LPW severe vs mild severe 2.532 1.318 4.866
LPW severe vs mild moderate 1.404 0.765 2.573
LPW moderate vs mild severe 1.715 0.884 3.325
LPW moderate vs mild moderate 1.214 0.682 2.161
BMI severe 1.152 1.087 1.220
BMI moderate 1.034 0.979 1.092
Age severe 1.027 1.003 1.050

  1. This table shows the odds ratio estimates of OSAS severity (based on AHI) for different severities of LPW collapse after accounting for BMI, age and ESS. It also indicates the odds ratio estimates of OSAS severity (based on AHI) of BMI, age and ESS individually
