AIM: Poor sleep has been shown to be associated with the development of cardiovascular risk factors, such as obesity, in both adults and children. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between sleep duration and arterial stiffness indices in Japanese children and early adolescents. METHODS: The data on 102 students (56 males, 46 females; mean age, 11.9±1.8 years) were analyzed. As non-invasive arterial stiffness parameters, the cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) and heart-ankle pulse wave velocity (haPWV) were evaluated...

CONTEXT: Few studies have examined the associations between sleep duration, shiftwork, and exercise to the infrequent menstruation, hyperandrogenism, and ovarian morphological changes observed in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). OBJECTIVE: To examine whether lifestyle factors, including short sleep duration, insufficient exercise, and shiftwork, alone or in combination, are associated with the reproductive and metabolic abnormalities typical of PCOS in a healthy population...

AIMS: Short sleep duration is a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. Cerebral blood flow and its regulation are affected by pathological conditions commonly observed in the elderly population, such as dementia, atherosclerosis, diabetes mellitus, stroke and hypertension. The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of sleep duration on cortical oxygenated hemoglobin (OxyHb) using near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS). METHODS: Seventy-three individuals (age, 70...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: To determine whether interdependence in couples' sleep (sleep-wake concordance i.e., whether couples are awake or asleep at the same time throughout the night) is associated with two markers of CVD risk, ambulatory blood pressure (BP) and systemic inflammation. DESIGN: Cross-sectional analysis. SETTING: Community-based study. PARTICIPANTS: Forty-six adult couples without known sleep disorders, ages 18-45 years...

The objective of this study was to analyse gender- and age-specific associations between sleep duration and prevalent hypertension in middle-aged and elderly Chinese. DESIGN: Secondary analysis of a cohort sample. SETTING: This study used data from the national baseline survey of the China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study (CHARLS, 2011-2012), covering 150 counties/districts and 450 villages/resident committees from 28 provinces in China...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a highly prevalent condition that has been associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, impaired glucose metabolism and daytime functional impairment. Compared with nonrapid eye movement sleep, rapid eye movement (REM) sleep is associated with higher sympathetic activity and cardiovascular instability in healthy individuals and more so in patients with OSA. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent studies have indicated that REM OSA is independently associated with prevalent and incident hypertension, nondipping of nocturnal blood pressure, increased insulin resistance and impairment of human spatial navigational memory...

BACKGROUND: Road accidents are one of the most important issues in Iran which more than eighteen thousand persons are died annually because of this problem. Among the major reasons for this issue, sleepiness and cardiovascular disorder can be mentioned. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association between insomnia and cardiovascular risk factors among professional drivers who are at high risk during driving. METHODS: A total of 1232 male bus drivers were included in the study and two different kinds of data sets were collected: (1) Sleep disorder information using Athens Insomnia Scale (AIS) and (2) Cardiovascular parameters such as systematic measurement of blood pressure, electrocardiography (ECG), total cholesterol, and triglyceride...

BACKGROUND: Obesity has been found to be a predictor of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). However, studies which divide obesity into metabolically healthy obesity (MHO) and metabolically unhealthy obesity (MUO) to study the effect of obesity on LVH have been rare. The present study aims to make clear the effects of various obese phenotypes and metabolic abnormalities on LVH. METHODS: A total of 10,804 participants were involved in this cross-sectional study. "Obesity" and "metabolically healthy" were defined as BMI ≥ 25kg/m(2) and having none of the metabolic factors respectively...

BACKGROUND: Racial disparities in hypertension prevalence in the United States are established. Given our understanding of racial and ethnic disparities in sleep characteristics and demonstrated associations between sleep characteristics and hypertension, we tested whether sleep characteristics mediated racial disparities in hypertension. METHODS: Analyses were performed in the Chicago Area Sleep Study, a population-based cohort study of 154 Blacks, 128 Whites, 103 Hispanics, and 109 Asians without obstructive sleep apnea...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to determine association obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with increased coagulability and reveal possible effects of constant positive airway pressure (CPAP). DESIGN AND METHOD: We included 77 patients with arterial hypertension (duration of AH = 13.8 ± 3.7 years), middle-aged (45.9 ± 10.5 years). 41 (53.2%) of them had severe OSA (AHI = 59.6 ± 26). OSA was diagnosed by means of cardiorespiratory monitoring. In patients with severe OSA blood samples (D-dimer, viscosity of blood, erythrocyte aggregation) were taken at baseline and after 3-4 nights of effective CPAP therapy (AHI < 5)...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between sleep duration and hypertension in a middle-aged Chinese population. METHODS: Cross-sectional data of 20,505 individuals aged 35-64 years from Taizhou longitudinal study was used. Logistic regression models were used to calculate odds ratios (ORs) for the risk of pre-hypertension and hypertension in association with sleep duration. RESULTS: Short sleep duration was associated with high systolic and diastolic blood pressure in comparison with sleep duration of 7-8 h in females...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: To investigate the potential association between snoring and other symptoms indicative of sleep-disordered breathing and metabolic syndrome (MetS) in Hispanic adolescents and younger adults using a large population-based survey. METHODS: Sleep-related information, anthropometric measurements and fasting blood samples markers of MetS were obtained from subjects aged 15-40 years collected through the 2nd Chilean Health Survey. Regression models were constructed to evaluate the associations of snoring with MetS, hypertension and serum cholesterol levels...

BACKGROUND: Sleep apnea is accompanied by some cardiovascular complications. It has even been hypothesized that sleep apnea, itself, can induce some of these complications. Given such controversies, we assessed the left ventricular mass index (LVMI) and systolic pulmonary artery pressure in patients with sleep apnea. METHODS: Through convenience sampling, 56 patients with the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) were included in the present descriptive cross-sectional study...

BACKGROUND: Studies on adult population indicate shorter sleep duration in ethnic minority groups than host populations. We examined ethnic differences in sleep duration and its relationship with overweight and blood pressure (BP) among children living in Amsterdam. METHODS: Participants include 2384 children (aged 5 years) and their mothers from the Amsterdam-based longitudinal study. Sleep was categorised into short sleep (<10 h/night) and normal sleep (10-11 h/night)...

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships between movement behaviours (sleep duration, sedentary time, physical activity) and health indicators in a representative sample of children and youth using compositional analyses. Cross-sectional findings are based on 4169 children and youth (aged 6-17 years) from cycles 1 to 3 of the Canadian Health Measures Survey. Sedentary time (SB), light-intensity physical activity (LPA), and moderate- to vigorous-intensity physical activity (MVPA) were accelerometer-derived...

OBJECTIVE: Menopause can affect the physiological timing system, which could result in circadian rhythm changes and development of napping habits. Whether longtime napping in postmenopausal women is associated with cardiovascular disease is, however, still debated. The present study aims to investigate this association. METHODS: We conducted a population-based study in 4,616 postmenopausal Chinese women. Information on sleep duration was self-reported. The Framingham General Cardiovascular Risk Score was calculated and used to identify participants at high risk of coronary heart disease (CHD)...
