in this snippet, the host explores new research that finds that obesity often carries a comorbidity of sleep apnea and high blood pressure in young patients, but pediatricians still have a nebulous understanding of which disease comes first, making it difficult to effectively treat patients.
say. You know, Joe, your work suggests that obesity, more than obstructive sleep apnea, is the more potent factor in understanding hypertension in the young person. As an expert in this field, I wondered if you were surprised by this finding or if this was what you were expecting. So no, we didn't expect that. We were looking to find the same finding that its proposed by adult work in hypertension relationship with obstructive sleep apnea. But it seems like that because of the short exposure, time off, impact of obstructive sleep apnea and Children may not lead to that much of abnormality in increasing systemic vascular resistance and all the proposed impact off increasing sympathetic tone in Children on All right, I think that if we would have waited longer or if we do the same study 10 years later on the patients, we probably will find a stronger relationship between impact of sleep on the blood pressure. But at least in this age group of 15 16 years of age, the predominant factor was the weight that was causing the blood blood pressure Avenue
