Cheyne-Stokes respiration and prognosis in congestive heart failure.
Patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) frequently demonstrate Cheyne-Stokes respiration (CSR) with repetitive arousals and oxygen desaturations during sleep. Although it was evident from earlyExpand

Treatment of Cheyne-Stokes respiration with nasal oxygen and carbon dioxide.
Cheyne-Stokes respiration (CSR) is common in patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) and is associated with significant nocturnal O2 desaturation, arousals and sympathetic activation. NocturnalExpand

Serial NT-proBNP measurements for risk stratification of patients with decompensated heart failure
PurposeNT-proBNP is an important prognostic predictor in patients with heart failure. However, it is unknown whether a change of NT-proBNP plasma levels in the early phase of decompensation might beExpand

Endothelin-1 plasma levels are not elevated in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea.
Endothelin-1 (ET-1), a potent vasoconstrictor, is released mainly by vascular endothelial cells under the influence of hypoxia and other stimuli. ET-1 is related to endothelial dysfunction, as wellExpand

[Nocturnal oxygen administration and cardiac arrhythmias during Cheyne-Stokes respiration in patients with heart failure].
Cheyne-Stokes respiration (CSR) is common during sleep in patients with severe congestive heart failure. It is not clear, if there is a relation between CSR and arrhythmias. Therefore in this studyExpand
