Obstructive sleep apneas syndrome (OSAS) is associated with nocturnal hypertension with higher sleep blood pressure (BP) and its variability, both of which increase cardiovascular risk. In this crossover design study, the effect of nighttime single-dose administration of vasodilating (nifedipine 40 mg) vs sympatholytic (carvedilol 20 mg) antihypertensive agents on sleep BP in 11 hypertensive OSAS patients was evaluated. The authors recently developed a trigger sleep BP monitor with an oxygen… CONTINUE READING
