STUDY OBJECTIVES To evaluate endothelium-dependent flow-mediated dilation (FMD) and endothelium-independent nitroglycerin (NTG)-induced dilation of the brachial artery with Doppler ultrasound in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and impact of six months of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment. DESIGN A prospective, controlled, observational study. SETTING Single-site, clinic-based. PATIENTS Twenty-nine normotensive men with OSA (apnea-hypopnea index [AHI], mean… CONTINUE READING
