PURPOSE To explore the associations between sleep hypoventilation (SH) and daytime arterial pressures of carbon dioxide (PaCO2), sleep stages, and sleep apneas/hypopneas (AHI) in subjects with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). SH has previously been found in COPD-subjects with chronic hypercapnic respiratory failure (CHRF) using supplementary(More)
PURPOSE/BACKGROUND The purpose of this study is to explore the effect of a moderate dose of alcohol on sleep architecture and respiration in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Alcohol depresses both hypercapnic and hypoxic ventilatory drives in awake, normal individuals and reduces the amount of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep and oxygen(More)
