INTRODUCTION Despite its severe cardiovascular and other consequences, sleep apnea syndrome frequently is undiagnosed. Because apneas result in repeated autonomic arousals associated with cyclic variations in heart rate (CVHR), we hypothesized that sleep apnea syndrome could be identified from simple HR tachograms (graphs of HR vs time) derived from ECG monitoring. METHODS AND RESULTS HR tachograms were generated from 57 digitized ECGs (46 clinical patients undergoing diagnostic studies and… CONTINUE READING
