Abstract: Introduction Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is characterized by partial or complete recurrent upper airway obstruction during sleep. OSA brings many adverse consequences, such as hypertension, obesity, diabetes mellitus, cardiac and encephalic alterations, behavioral, among others, resulting in a significant source of public health care by generating a high financial and social impact. The importance of this assessment proves to be useful, because the incidence of patients with comorbidities associated with AOS… Show more

“…OSA is characterized by markedly elevated sympathetic nerve traffic while awake which may aid in chronic elevation of blood pressure. Increased left ventricular wall thickening has been observed in patients with OSA [5]. The left ventricular hypertrophy is an adverse prognosis of OSA and may also lead to impaired myocardial contractility [6].…”
