AIM P-wave dispersion (Pd) has been reported to be associated with inhomogeneous and discontinuous propagation of sinus impulses. The purpose of this study was to investigate Pd in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and to determine its relationship with severity of the disease. METHODS The study population included 67 patients referred to sleep laboratory. The Apnea-Hypopnea Index (AHI) was defined as the number of apneas and hypopneas per hour of sleep. Of the sixty-seven patients… CONTINUE READING
