Background Excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS), a common symptom among patients with sleep‐disordered breathing, is closely associated with the development of cardiovascular diseases, but its long‐term prognostic value is not completely understood. The aim of this study was to investigate whether EDS would be an independent prognostic factor after myocardial infarction. Methods and Results We prospectively recruited 112 post–myocardial infarction patients. The Epworth Sleepiness Scale was complet...

Abstract Background: Asian Indians have markedly increased mortality due to coronary artery disease (CAD). Impaired endothelial function has been linked to an increased risk of acute cardiovascular events. We tested the hypothesis that endothelial function was attenuated in Asian Indians and Caucasians. Methods: We studied 14 Asian Indians [mean age: 30 ± 6 years; mean body mass index (BMI): 25 ± 3 kg/m2] and 11 Caucasians (mean age: 30 ± 5 years; mean BMI: 26 ± 2 kg/m2). All 25 subjects were he...

Background Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is an important risk factor for the development of cardiovascular diseases including myocardial infarction (MI). The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of OSA on prognosis after MI, and to determine which specific measures of OSA severity best predicted outcomes. Methods and Results We performed a prospective study, in which 112 patients without a prior diagnosis of sleep apnea underwent comprehensive polysomnography within a median of 7 day...

Although laboratory stressor tests have been applied as a preliminary protocol in some cardiovascular studies, there is a lack of data comparing the pressor and chronotropic responses among the main stressor tests. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the variability in hemodynamic responsiveness to the main stressor tests, establish a hyperresponsiveness cutoff criterion and analyze the influence of gender and family history of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) in healthy subjects. We ...

Background An important consequence of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) is excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS). EDS often predicts a favorable response to treatment of SDB, although in the setting of cardiovascular disease, particularly heart failure, SDB and EDS do not reliably correlate. Atrial fibrillation (AF) is another highly prevalent condition strongly associated with SDB. We sought to assess the relationship between EDS and SDB in patients with AF. Methods We conducted a prospective stud...

Background The Berlin Questionnaire (BQ) has been used to identify patients at high risk for sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) in a variety of populations. However, there are no data regarding the validity of the BQ in detecting the presence of SDB in patients after myocardial infarction (MI). The aim of this study was to determine the performance of the BQ in patients after MI. Methods We conducted a cross-sectional study of 99 patients who had an MI 1 to 3 months previously. The BQ was administ...

Background Impaired brachial flow-mediated dilation (FMD) is associated with risk for subsequent cardiovascular events in patients after myocardial infarction (MI). These patients often have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). We tested the hypothesis that patients with OSA post MI will exhibit more severe impairment in FMD. Methods We studied 64 patients with MI admitted to our hospital. OSA was determined using polysomnography. FMD was measured using high-resolution ultrasonography, with researcher...
