  • Effects of nasal CPAP on sympathetic activity in patients with heart failure and central sleep apnea [20].
  • There was a corresponding progressive increase in central apnea length following the ventilatory period from no arousal (14.1 +/- 2.0) to EEG arousal (16.4 +/- 1.8) to movement arousal (18.1 +/- 2.0 s, p < 0.01) [21].
  • RESULTS: Influence of ambient temperature was seen in: RESPIRATORY PARAMETERS: The frequency of central apneas increased significantly with increasing temperatures in REM sleep, but not in NREM sleep [22].
  • Recordings were examined for occurrences of GER and for central apnea of 10 seconds or greater duration [23].
  • These findings further suggest that endogenous 5-HT, acting at least at peripheral 5-HT3 receptors, may play a baseline physiologic role in the expression of spontaneous central apneas in rats [24].
