In a paper, authors showed how Polysomnography (PSG) (SpO2 (oxygen saturation), AHI (Apnea-Hypopnea index) and Nadir (i.e., the lowerest oxygen saturation in sleep)) data was correlated above all to Inferior airway (IAS). The modification of IAS was related to the mandibular vertical and sagittal position and to palatal length and thickness.
