First published August 29, 2013; doi:10.1152/japplphysiol.00649.2013.—Historically, brief awakenings from sleep (cortical arousals) have been assumed to be vitally important in restoring airflow and blood-gas disturbances at the end of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) breathing events. Indeed, in patients with blunted chemical drive (e.g., obesity… CONTINUE READING
