Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a frequently underdiagnosed condition that has emerged as an increasing medical problem with important social and financial implications worldwide. OSA is a well established risk factor for systemic hypertension myocardial infarction or stroke and it has been documented that blood pressure rises in a very consistent fashion during apneic episodes. The incidence of the episodes of apnea during sleep causes repeated subclinical acute kidney injuries (AKI) contributing to the development of CKD. One of the mechanisms responsible for AKI might be endothelial injury followed by an increase of central aortic pressure.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • presence of acute kidney injury [ Time Frame: one year ]

Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: February 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2011
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP)
CPAP will be applied in all patients
Other: continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP)
After being qualified into the study according to the aforementioned inclusion criteria and after giving an informed consent the polysomnography will be performed in all patients during night rest.In all patients eligible to sleep apnea treatment according to apnea/hypopnea index (AHI, number of apneic/hypopneic episodes per 1 h of effective sleep) from diagnostic polysomnography, CPAP treatment will be introduced under polysomnographic surveillance and the same panel of clinical and biochemical parameters will be evaluated.
