Abstract

Sleep apnea, a nocturnal disturbance of the respiratory regulation, has effects on the hemodynamics during sleep as well as during the day. The first systematic inquiries into these relationships were conducted as early as 1965 by Jung and Kuhlo [1]. In 1972, the research team of Coccagna and Lugaresi used direct measurements to document the blood pressure behavior during individual apnea episodes [2].
