Neurometabolic Assessment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea by MRI
The purpose of this research study is to explore the effect of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) on brain oxygen metabolism. This will show us how much oxygen your brain uses to function. OSA is known to lower levels of oxygen in the blood and also to cause cognitive deficits. We want to see if brain oxygen levels are lower in people who have OSA and if using CPAP therapy will help improve brain oxygen levels. We also want to conduct cognitive testing to see how your brain is functioning.
If you decide to participate in the study you will be asked to come in for three visits. Each visit will have three parts:
You will be paid $75 for each visit you complete, for a total of $225 if you complete all visits. If you travel to the University of Pennsylvania for a study visit you may receive travel reimbursement up to $25. Please note: In order to be compensated for your participation in this study, you must provide your Social Security Number. Additionally, please note that the University of Pennsylvania is required to report to the IRS any cumulative payments for participation in research studies that exceed a total of $600 in a calendar year.
