Previous studies have shown that the arousal threshold to hypoxia, hypercapnia, and tracheal occlusions is greatly depressed in rapid-eye-movement (REM) sleep compared with slow-wave sleep (SWS). The aim of this study was to compare the arousal thresholds in SWS and REM sleep in response to an upper airway pressure stimulus. We compared the waking responses… CONTINUE READING
