Acute sleep deprivation is associated with increased atrial electromechanical delay in healthy young adults.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Sleep deprivation (SD) is known to be associated with an increased incidence of adverse cardiovascular outcome. Atrial electromechanical delay (AEMD) calculated from tissue Doppler imaging has been shown to detect atrial impairment in paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. The aim of the study was to investigate whether AEMD would increase in otherwise… (More)
