The aim of this study was to assess the function of the autonomic nervous system in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS). The study was designed as a cross-sectional case-control study. Fifty-one patients were included, and the findings were compared with those in 66 controls. Spectral analysis of heart rate variability (HRV) during supine rest, during controlled breathing and after tilting was performed in each patient and control case. The patients performed overnight sleep… CONTINUE READING
