Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review


The bidirectional relationship between sleep disordered breathing and chronic kidney disease (CKD) has recently gained a lot of interest. Several lines of evidence suggest the high prevalence of coexistent obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in patients with CKD and end-stage renal disease (ESRD). In addition, OSA seems to result in loss of kidney function in some patients, especially in those with cardio-metabolic comorbidities. Treatment of CKD/ESRD and OSA can alter the natural history of each other; still better phenotyping with selection of appropriate treatment approaches is urgently needed. The aim of this narrative review is to provide an update of recent studies on epidemiological associations, pathophysiological interactions, and management of patients with OSA and CKD or ESRD.
