The effect of simulated obstructive apnea and hypopnea on aortic diameter and BP.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Preliminary evidence supports an association between obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and thoracic aortic dilatation. The mechanisms through which OSA may promote thoracic aortic dilatation are incompletely understood. Therefore, we studied the acute effects of simulated apnea and hypopnea on aortic diameter and BP in humans. METHODS: The diameter of the aortic root was measured in 20 healthy volunteers by echocardiography, and peripheral BP was continuously recorded prior, during, ...
