The effect of regression dilution bias on the nocturnal hypoxaemia V blood pressure relationship

Abstract:

Nocturnal hypoxaemia is inaccurately assessed by one night's sleep study which will artifactually reduce its relationship with blood pressure through regression dilution bias. This study aims to quantify this effect. Two data sets were analysed. 893 normal men aged 35-60, studied during a survey of OSA and mean blood pressure (MBP) (BMJ: 1990:300:75) and 204 subjects (162M, 42F, Age 49SD10.8, >4%SaO2 diprate 14SD20.3) referred with possible sleep apnoea to centre 2.
