A study in the November issue of SLEEP suggests that the intermittent hypoxia associated with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) could induce fertility reduction in male patients. The study mimicked OSA in a case-control comparison using a mouse model. According to a commentary on the study, a possible “sperm crisis” may be occurring, due in part to the increasing incidence in sleep disturbance.
