How common is obstructive sleep apnea in young hypertensive patients?

In conclusion, after excluding other possible causes of hypertension, we found OSA to be highly prevalent in hypertensive patients younger than 35  years old. Increasing age and high body mass index were predictors for OSA in young hypertensive patients.

In conclusion, a 6-month CPAP treatment did not reduce aortic stiffness, measured by cf-PWV, in patients with RHT and moderate/severe OSA, but treatment may prevent its progression, in contrast to no-CPAP therapy. PMID: 32048379 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Clinical factors associated with daytime sleepiness and insomnia in persons with epilepsy (PWE) were examined in this cross-sectional study of 126 participants (men, 50.8%). Excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS; score of ≥11 on the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS)) was noted in 17.5% of participants (mean score, 6.1 ± 4.2), and moderate-to-severe insomnia (Insomnia Severity Index (ISI) scores of ≥15) was noted in 20.6% (mean score, 7.8 ± 6.4). Linear regression analyses revealed that ESS scores were independently associated with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA; snoring, tiredness, obse...

In conclusion, the findings strongly suggest that obesity rather than the hypertensive disease per se is a source of hemodynamic consequences in OSA patients. PMID: 32026418 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract PURPOSE: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is independently associated with increased risk for stroke and other cardiovascular diseases. Since activated platelets play an important role in cardiovascular disease, the objective of this study was to determine whether platelet reactivity was altered in OSA subjects with intermittent nocturnal hypoxemia. METHODS: Thirty-one subjects, without hypertension or cardiovascular disease and not taking medication, participated in the study. Subjects were stratified based on OSA-related oxygen desaturation index (ODI) recorded during overnight polysomnography. Platel...
