Conference paper


Several studies have shown that there is a high prevalence of sleep-related breathing disorders (SRBD) [9, 14, 18]. Most of these SRBD are caused by sleep apnea, which is characterized by repetitive intermittent cessations of respiration during sleep, lasting for at least 10s. Epidemiologic and polysomnographic studies in sleep laboratories have demontrated the importance of sleep apnea, as they show that patients may be severely endangered by tachycardiac and bradycardiac arrhythmia, arterial and pulmonary hypertension, and apoplectic strokes, depending on the severity of sleep apnea [4, 6, 8, 13, 15, 19].
