  1. Snoring and risk of stroke and ischaemic heart disease in a 70 year old population. A 6-year follow-up study.

    Article - En anglais


    A number of studies have demonstrated an association between habitual snoring and cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.

    Control for the influence of potential confounders has been inadequate.

    To clarify the issue we examined the association between snoring and future risk of ischaemic heart disease (IHD) and stroke while controlling for the potential influence of major cardio-and cerebrovascular risk factors.


    In all, 804 70 year old males and females were classified according to snoring habits.

    Alcohol and tobacco consumption, blood pressure, body mass index, social group, plasma lipids (triglycerides, cholesterol, high density lipoprotein), fasting blood glucose, plasma epinephrine and norepinephrine were determined at baseline.
