Selected Contribution: Regulation of sleep-wake states in response to intermittent hypoxic stimuli applied only in sleep.

Recurrent sleep-related hypoxia occurs in common disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The marked changes in sleep after treatment suggest that stimuli associated with OSA (e.g., intermittent hypoxia) may significantly modulate sleep regulation. However, no studies have investigated the independent effects of intermittent sleep-related hypoxia on… CONTINUE READING
