Autonomic markers of arousal during sleep in patients undergoing investigation for obstructive sleep apnoea, their relationship to EEG arousals, respiratory events and subjective sleepiness.

Abstract:

Estimating the degree of sleep fragmentation is an important part of a respiratory sleep study and is conventionally measured using EEG micro arousals or is inferred indirectly from respiratory abnormalities such as apnoeas and desaturations. There is a need for less labour-intensive measures of sleep fragmentation, and transient rises in blood pressure and heart rate may fulfil this role. Forty unselected sleep clinic referrals undergoing investigation for possible obstructive sleep apnoea (...
