    Non-obese people with OSA are more difficult to treat with CPAP, and likely have different phenotypic causes compared to obese people with OSA. However, this has not been well characterised. Accordingly, the objective of this study was to compare the 4 key phenotypic causes of OSA in non-obese versus obese people with OSA.
