Sleep Duration, Snoring Habits, and Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factors in an Ethnically Diverse Population
Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing, 05/09/2012
Mosca M et al. – Sleeping less than 6 hours per night was associated with several traditional and psychosocial cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors, and snoring was associated with low high–density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL–C) level, likely mediated through overweight/obesity. These data may have significance for health care providers to identify individuals who may be at increased CVD risk based on sleep habits.
