Obstructive sleep apnoeas are common among stroke patients and, as different from central apnoeas, they do not decline during stroke rehabilitation. Cerebral and cardiovascular changes display a different pattern during central and obstructive sleep apnoeas. The cerebral blood flow velocity according to transcranial Doppler increases during an obstructive apnoea and decreases after apnoea termination concomitant with changes in arterial pressure. The changes in cerebral circulation during… CONTINUE READING
