The effects of simulated obstructive apnea and hypopnea on arrhythmic potential in healthy subjects.

Abstract:

Preliminary evidence supports an association between OSA and cardiac dysrhythmias. Negative intrathoracic pressure, as occurring during OSA, may provoke cardiac dysrhythmias. Thus, we aimed to study the acute effects of simulated apnea and hypopnea on arrhythmic potential and measures of cardiac repolarization [QT(C) and T (peak) to T (end) intervals [TpTec]) in humans. In 41 healthy volunteers, ECG was continuously recorded prior, during and after simulated obstructive hypopnea (inspiration ...
