Effect of short term graded withdrawal of nasal continuous positive airway pressure on systemic blood pressure in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea.

Abstract:

It is debated whether obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a significant independent risk factor for sustained hypertension or cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. In an attempt to avoid the problem of confounding variables we have investigated whether withdrawing nasal continuous positive airway pressure (NCPAP) from patients with OSA for different proportions of the night leads to a subsequent rise in their morning blood pressures. Six patients with treated OSA had their NCPAP automatically...
