Conclusions:This retrospective study illustrates that there are patients for whom PSG gave a false-negative study. Patients who had negative PSG and positive HSAT are more likely to be older and have the diagnosis of hypertension. Sleep physicians may consider repeat testing with HSAT in patients with a negative PSG and clinical symptoms of OSA.Commentary:A commentary on this article appears in this issue on page 1839.Citation:Lipatov K, Hayek A, Ghamande S, Boethel C, Chen W, Jones S.

Authors: Coluccia R, Raffa S, Ranieri D, Micaloni A, Valente S, Salerno G, Scrofani C, Testa M, Gallo G, Pagannone E, Torrisi MR, Volpe M, Rubattu S Abstract Oxidative stress is currently viewed as a key factor in the genesis and progression of Heart Failure (HF). The aim of this study was to characterize the mitochondrial changes linked to oxidative stress generation in circulating peripheral blood mononuclear cells isolated from chronic HF patients (HF_PBMCs) in order to highlight the involvement of mitochondrial dysfunction in the pathophysiology of HF. To assess the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), ...
