Prevalence of sleepiness and its relation to autonomic evidence of arousals and increased inspiratory effort in a community based population of men and women.

It has been suggested that sleep can be fragmented by upper airways obstructive events, short of full apnoeas or hypopnoeas, and that these events may not provoke full cortical arousal, but be detectable through activation of the autonomic system.
