Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has a multifactorial aetiology. Waking up too easily to minor airway narrowing (a low respiratory arousal threshold: ArTH) contributes to OSA pathogenesis in approximately 1/3 of OSA patients. Conversely, others require substantial respiratory stimuli (ventilatory drive) to elicit cortical arousal (high arousal threshold). The extent to which the ArTH phenotype contributes to common clinical consequences of OSA such as blood pressure and glucose control is unknown. Thus, we aimed to determine relationships between the ArTH with blood pressure and glucose control.
