Current Research in Sleep-Related Breathing Disorders: Conclusions for Internal Diagnostics and Therapy

Conference paper

Abstract

Internists and general physicians have been familiar with the relationship between sleep-wake disorders and internal diseases for quite some time. This connection is usually regarded from the point of view that a severe and/or consumptive primary disease interferes with the normal sleep-wake behavior, or that altered sleep-wake behavior is the result of certain medications, as is the case in antihypertensive therapy or steroid therapy.
