Association of Intermittent and Continuous Hypoxaemia with Carotid and Brachial Arterial Intima-media Thicknesses

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.370
Synopsis: 
In this report, we investigated whether or not the effect of intermittent and continuous hypoxia on carotid and brachial artery intima-media thicknesses (IMTs) is similar. We showed that both intermittent and continuous hypoxia result in remarkable alterations in carotid-IMT and brachial-IMT.

ABSTRACT

Objective: We hypothesized that the effect of intermittent and continuous hypoxia on carotid and brachial artery intima-media thicknesses (IMTs) may be similar. We aimed to assess the carotid and brachial arteries’ IMTs in cases with intermittent [obstructive sleep apnea syndrome] (OSAS) and continuous (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) [COPD] hypoxemia together with other confounding demographic and biochemical factors.
