The effects of continuous positive airway pressure therapy withdrawal on cardiac repolarization: data from a randomized controlled trial.
AIMS: The preliminary evidence supports an association between obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), disturbed cardiac repolarization, and consequent cardiac dysrhythmias. The aim of the current trial was to assess the effects of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy withdrawal on the measures of cardiac repolarization in patients with OSA.
