Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) and high blood pressure (BP) are more frequent among obese with respect to normal weight children and this may be due to endothelial dysfunction and a worsened arterial stiffness. The aim of this study was to evaluate the possible association between SDB and BP and the possible role of endothelial function and local and systemic arterial stiffness in a sample of obese children asymptomatic for sleep disturbances.

Abstract

Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) and high blood pressure (BP) are more frequent among obese with respect to normal weight children and this may be due to endothelial dysfunction and a worsened arterial stiffness. The aim of this study was to evaluate the possible association between SDB and BP and the possible role of endothelial function and local and systemic arterial stiffness in a sample of obese children asymptomatic for sleep disturbances.
