Common polysomnographic measures of sleep-disordered breathing have shown a disappointing ability to predict important consequences such as excessive daytime sleepiness. Using novel analytic techniques, this study tested the hypothesis that numerous, brief disruptions in cortical activity could occur on a breath-to-breath basis during nonapneic sleep. Spectral analysis proved the existence of respiratory cycle-related electroencephalographic changes in each of 38 adult patients evaluated by… CONTINUE READING
