Obstructive sleep apnea and Sudden death

Apoor S. Gami, Virend Somers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a prevalent condition associated with several cardiovascular diseases. This article reviews the epidemiology of OSA, the physiology of normal sleep, the pathophysiology of sleep in patients with OSA, and the mechanisms by which OSA may increase the risk of sudden death. The available epidemiological data to support such a relationship are reviewed.
