  • Alcohol dependence is associated with an increased incidence of hypertension and cardiac arrhythmias, but the triggering mechanisms are not known. Sleep loss, common in alcohol-dependent patients, causes an activation of the sympathetic nervous system. To determine whether sleep deprivation induces differential cardiovascular and sympathetic responses in alcohol dependence, we measured heart rate, blood pressure, and circulating sympathetic catecholamines in 36 abstinent alcohol-dependent men… CONTINUE READING
