Ventilatory response to spontaneous resistive load variations during sleep.

Abstract

We investigated the ventilatory response to spontaneous changes in resistive load during sleep in nine adult asthmatic patients, four of whom were snorers. All patients had a history of nocturnal worsening of respiratory symptoms and were submitted to a nocturnal polysomnographic study in a sleep laboratory. During the night, all patients showed spontaneous… (More)
