Abstract

A clear association among snoring, sleep apnea, and increased risk of stroke has been shown by previous studies. However, the possible role played by sleep apnea in the pathogenesis of cerebrovascular disease is subject to debate. To evaluate the influence of hemodynamic changes caused by obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), we investigated cerebrovascular reactivity to hypercapnia in patients with OSAS.
