Sleep Apnea: Implications in Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Disease specifically addresses the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular consequences of sleep apnea and is geared toward a broad readership of physicians that will ultimately aid patients suffering from sleep apnea.

The Second Edition ensures that there is a critical synthesis of existing literature and new information, linking sleep apnea to the major disease burdens faced by developed and developing nations. This synthesis includes both new basic and epidemiological data and published clinical trials linking sleep apnea to:

  • inflammation
  • the metabolic syndrome
  • stroke
  • hypertension and heart failure
