Blood pressure variability in OSA – data from four randomised-controlled CPAP-withdrawal trials

Abstract:

Background

Increased daytime blood pressure variability (BPV) is associated with cardiovascular risk. Preliminary data suggests that obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) might contribute to increased daytime BPV.

Objective
