Stroke Can Cause Sleep Apnoea in Some Patients
Stroke patients who have damage to their brain stem are more likely to have sleep apnoea than those with damage in other parts of their brain. Their study included 355 people in Texas, average age 65, who suffered an ischemic stroke, which is caused by blocked blood flow in the brain. Of the 11 percent who had damage to the brain stem, 84 percent had sleep apnoea. By comparison, only 59 percent of those without brain stem injury had sleep apnoea.
