Objective: This paper attempts to study and analyze the clinical features of epilepsy patients with obstructive sleep apnea hypo- pnea syndrom (OSAHS).
Method: This paper selects 68 partial epilepsy patients treated at the Outpatient Department and the Inpatient Department of the Second Affiliated Hospital of Nanchang University from October 2015 to December 2016 as the subjects and divides them into the epile- psy with OSAHS group (21 cases) and the epilepsy without OSAHS group (47 cases). By comparing the types of antiepileptic drugs the two groups used and their interictalepileptiform discharges (IEDs), this paper analyzes the clinical features of partial epilepsy patients with OSAHS.
Result: Through comparison of the epilepsy with OSAHS group and the epilepsy without OSAHS group, it is found that there are statistically significant differences in age, gender, age of onset and IEDs (P<0.05). Age of onset and IED have positive effects on AHI, i.e. the older the age of onset is and the higher the positive rate of IED is, the higher the AHI will be.
Conclusion: In this study, the incidence rate of epilepsy with OSAHS is 30.88%, and the main clinical features include middle- aged and elderly male, great age of onset and high positive rate of IED.
