High blood pressure: Not getting enough sleep could lead to hypertension

HIGH BLOOD pressure increases the risk of having a heart attack or stroke if left untreated. People who are overweight or have an unhealthy diet are more likely to suffer from the condition, but it can also be caused by not getting enough sleep.

Both diseases share associated risk factors – hypertension, diabetes mellitus, sleep apnea, obesity and smoking. Moreover, inflammation plays a causative role in both diseases. The prevalence of CAD in patients with AF is from 17% to 46.5% while the prevalence of AF among pati...

For the last two decades, evidence has been mounting that obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) may be a cause of cardiovascular disease (CVD). OSA causes repeated acute falls in nocturnal arterial blood oxygen saturation, and rises in blood pressure and heart rate. These physiological changes, combined with the acute mechanical stress placed on the heart from the often very large negative pleural pressure swings during obstructed breathing, were postulated to provide the substrate necessary to induce acute events such as myocardial infarction, arrhythmias, acute heart failure, stroke and sudden cardiovascular death. Observationa...

Conclusion: Our results link transportation noise exposure to development of obesity and suggest that combined exposure from different sources may be particularly harmful. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1910 Received: 17 March 2017 Revised: 5 October 2017 Accepted: 9 October 2017 Published: 20 November 2017 Address correspondence to A.

Moreover, sleep deprivation brings about vehicle accidents and medical errors and is therefore an urgent topic of investigation. During sleep deprivation, homeostatic and circadian processes interact to build up sleep pressure, which results in slow behavioral performance (cognitiv...

Conclusions: Long-term exposure to NO2 and road traffic noise was associated with higher risk of heart failure, mainly among men, in both single- and two-pollutant models. High exposure to both pollutants was associated with highest risk. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1272 Received: 25 October 2016 Revised: 09 August 2017 Accepted: 09 August 2017 Published: 26 September 2017 Address correspondence to M.

Abstract Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common cardiovascular disease while atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia. Both diseases share associated risk factors - hypertension, diabetes mellitus, sleep apnea, obesity and smoking. Moreover, inflammation plays a causative role in both diseases. The prevalence of CAD in patients with AF is from 17% to 46.5% while the prevalence of AF among patients with CAD is low and it is estimated from 0.2% to 5%. AF is a well-established factor of poor short- and long-term prognosis in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and is associ...
