- Effects of continuous positive airway pressure versus supplemental oxygen on 24-hour ambulatory blood pressureDaniel Norman
Department of Medicine, School of Medicine, University of California, San Diego, CA, USA
Hypertension 47:840-5. 2006..We conclude that CPAP therapy reduces both daytime and nighttime blood pressure in patients with OSA, perhaps through mechanisms other than improvement of nocturnal oxyhemoglobin saturation...
- Effects of 2-week nocturnal oxygen supplementation and continuous positive airway pressure treatment on psychological symptoms in patients with obstructive sleep apnea: a randomized placebo-controlled studyWayne A Bardwell
Department of Psychiatry, Moores UCSD Cancer Center, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093 0804, USA
Behav Sleep Med 5:21-38. 2007..Both therapeutic CPAP and O(2) supplementation resulted in decreased psychological symptoms. Results suggest hypoxemia may play a stronger role than sleep disruption vis-à-vis OSA related psychological distress...
- Caffeine intake is independently associated with neuropsychological performance in patients with obstructive sleep apneaDaniel Norman

Sleep Breath 12:199-205. 2008..05). In patients with moderately severe OSA, higher average daily caffeine intake was associated with less cognitive impairment...
- The effect of opioids on sleep architectureJoel E Dimsdale
Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego, USA
J Clin Sleep Med 3:33-6. 2007..This study examined whether commonly used opioid medications have an adverse effect on sleep architecture in healthy adults...
- Inflammation and sleep in healthy individualsPaul J Mills
Department of Psychiatry, University of California San Diego, School of Medicine, La Jolla, CA, USA
Sleep 30:729-35. 2007..Inflammation is relatively common in individuals with a sleep disorder and is associated with quality of sleep. The purpose of this study was to examine whether inflammation is associated with quality of sleep in healthy individuals...

Department of General Internal Medicine, University Hospital Berne, Bern, Switzerland
Sleep Breath 11:239-44. 2007..No significant time x treatment effect was observed for either group. We could not show a specific beneficial impact of CPAP treatment on mood in OSA patients...
- Evidence of sustained forearm vasodilatation after brief isocapnic hypoxiaRenaud Tamisier
Department of Medicine, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, MA 02215, USA
J Appl Physiol 96:1782-7. 2004..05). We conclude that, unmasked by phentolamine, the vasodilation occurring during hypoxia persists for at least 30 min after the stimulus. This vasodilation may contribute to the sustained MSNA rise observed after hypoxia...
- Does obstructive sleep apnea increase hematocrit?Jong Bae Choi
Department of Neuropsychiatry, Kyunggi Provincial Hospital for the Elderly, Kyunggi Do, South Korea
Sleep Breath 10:155-60. 2006..05). The severity of OSA is significantly associated with increased hematocrit, even after controlling for possible confounding variables. However, nocturnal hypoxemia in OSA does not usually lead to clinical polycythemia...
