  1. 6. Ventilation and Lung Volume During Sleep and in Obstructive Sleep Apnea

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jonas Appelberg; Göran Hedenstierna; Christer Janson; Karl Franklin; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physiology; Sleep; Ventilation; Sleep apnea syndromes; Snoring; Lung volume; Respiration; Computed tomography; Ventilatory response; Ventilation-perfusion; Airway closure; Fysiologi; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi; klinisk fysiologi; Clinical Physiology;

    Abstract : Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) appears to affect up to 5% of the population. The extent to what pulmonary function awake and during sleep relates to obstructive breathing and hypoxemia during sleep in these patients is unclear. READ MORE

  2. 7. Snoring and sleep apnea : A study of evolution and consequences in a male population

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Eva Lindberg; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Snoring; sleepiness; sleep apnea; epidemiology; hypertension; mortality; evolution; population-based; prospective; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is characterized by snoring, repeated apneas during sleep and excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS). The available data suggest that there is a relationship between OSAS and cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, but the results diverge. READ MORE

  3. 8. Cardiovascular dysfunction in obstructive sleep apnea

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Holger Kraiczi; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obstructive sleep apnea; blood pressure; cardiac size; left ventricular function; endothelium-dependent vasodilation; forearm vascular conductance; natriuretic peptides;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses relationships between the presence or severity of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and blood pressure (BP) as well as other signs of cardiovascular dysfunction.In a cross-sectional investigation of a sleep laboratory cohort of 81 patients, a dose response relationship was observed between the number of apneas plus hypopneas per hour of sleep (apnea-hypopnea index, AHI; measured with polysomnography) and office systolic and diastolic BP (SBP and DBP), daytime ambulatory DBP as well as nighttime ambulatory SBP and DBP (all ambulatory measurements taken at 20-minute intervals).

  4. 9. Obstructive sleep apnea and cardiovascular morbidity

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Yüksel Peker; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obstructive sleep apnea; cardiovascular; hypertension; coronary artery disease; hospitalization; cost utility; morbidity; mortality; secondary prevention; angiotensin II; CPAP;

    Abstract : Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) affects 24 % of middle-aged men and 9 % of women in USA but the treatment criterion, daytime sleepiness is reported by 17 and 22 % of these subjects, respectively. Some previous studies have suggested an association between OSA and cardiovascular disease (CVD), but the conclusions have been conflicting due to co-existing traditionally recognized risk factors.

  5. 10. Snoring and Sleep Apnea in Women Risk Factors, Signs and Consequences

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Malin Svensson; Eva Lindberg; Mats Holmström; Ludger Grote; [2008]
    Keywords : snoring; sleep apnea; women; general population; risk factors; daytime sleepiness; inflammation; pharynx;

    Abstract : Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is characterized by snoring, apneas and excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS). Obesity is a risk factor for snoring and sleep apnea, but data on other factors in relation to obesity are ambiguous. Symptoms of sleep apnea in women have not been fully elucidated. READ MORE
