Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is highly associated with hypertension. However, the correlation between hypertension and OSA at different levels of severity and the influence of gender on that correlation are unclear. A total of 996 patients (776 males and 190 females) with OSA were recruited. The influence of gender on the correlation between hypertension(More)
Accurate measurements of autonomic nerve regulation in heart failure (HF) were unresolved. The discriminating performance of deceleration and acceleration capacities of heart rate in HF was evaluated in 130 HF patients and 212 controls. Acceleration capacity and deceleration capacity were independent risk factors for HF in males, evaluated by multiple(More)
Although hypertension (HTN), obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and obesity frequently co-occur, the precise role of obesity in this interrelationship is not completely understood. A total of 727 OSA patients were assigned to body mass index (BMI) <25 (27.6%; n = 201), 25≤ BMI <29.99 (53.4%; n = 388), and BMI ≥30 (19%; n = 138). HTN risk factors in each group(More)
