    Background The links between obstructive sleep apnoea and hypertension are well established; obstructive sleep apnoea is reported in up to 30% of patients with hypertension, although it is frequently underdiagnosed. Physicians can assess the degree of sleepiness by administering the Epworth...

    OBJECTIVE: Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is considered a cause of secondary hypertension. About 50% of patients with OSA show elevated blood pressure levels. Non-dipper pattern (blunted or absent nocturnal decrease of blood pressure) is frequently observed in patients with OSA and is associated...

    This article reports that obstructive sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome (OSAHS) is primarily treated to improve quality of life by controlling excessive daytime sleepiness. It is clear that patients with OSAHS have, on average, higher blood pressures than age and sex matched controls, and the...

    Multilevel anatomic obstruction is often present in snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). As the nose is the first anatomical boundary of the upper airway, nasal obstruction may contribute to sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). A number of pathophysiological mechanisms can potentially...

    Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) is a clinical disorder associated with hypertension; recent guidelines suggest that it should be considered as one of the causes of refractory hypertension. Good clinical practice indicates that a patient with suspected sleep apnoea should undergo 24 h...

    Background: Childhood obstructive sleep apnoea (USA) is increasingly being recognised. Its effects on blood pressure (BP) elevation and hypertension are still controversial. Objective: To evaluate the association between USA and ambulatory BP in children. Methods: Children aged 6-13 years from...
