Özet

Introduction: The relationship between periodic limb movements during sleep (PLMS) and sleep related breathing disorder (SRBD) is not clear. Factors affecting the occurrence of PLMS in patients with SRBD, and a possible relation of PLMS and sleep related hypoxia in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and sleep related hypoventilation-hypoxemic syndromes was investigated.
