Brief Summary:
Individuals with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) are at high risk for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. The effect of long-term nocturnal therapy with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) on daytime baroreflex sensitivity (BRS), a predictor of cardiac death, was investigated in OSAS patients.
