    Am J Respir Crit Care Med 165:61-6. 2002
    ..This vasoconstrictor response appears to be, at least in part, mediated by the sympathetic nervous system and may be linked to hypoxia...

    Virginia A Imadojemu
    Division of Pulmonary, Allergy and Critical Care, Penn State Heart and Vascular Institute, 500 University Drive, Hershey, PA 17033, USA
    Chest 131:1406-13. 2007
    ..Sympathetic nerve activity is increased in awake and regularly breathing patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Over time, repetitive hypoxic stress could alter sympathetic chemoreflex function in OSA...

    Am J Respir Crit Care Med 165:950-3. 2002
    ..Furthermore, effective CPAP therapy decreases sympathetic activity in sleep apnea. Thus, sympathoexcitation and abnormal vascular function in patients with sleep apnea appear to be linked to the repetitive nocturnal apneic events...
