CPAP Helps Control BP in Apnoea Patients
CPAP or continuous positive airway pressure is said to be an effective treatment for sleep apnoea. However, recent reports also say that people with resistant hypertension and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) who were treated with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) had a significant improvement in their blood pressure control compared with similar patients who did not receive CPAP. The authors concluded: “Among patients with OSA and resistant hypertension, CPAP treatment for 12 weeks compared with control resulted in a decrease in 24-hour mean and diastolic blood pressure and an improvement in the nocturnal blood pressure pattern. Further research is warranted to assess longer-term health outcomes.”
