Roberto Sávio Silva Santos, Shveta S. Motwani and Rosilene Motta Elias   Pages 43 - 47 ( 5 )


The outlines of the current manuscript are: 1. Re-establish the link between hypertension and SDB including prevalence, mechanism, and reversal of process (i.e. improvement in hypertension with improvement in SDB), why it is important-cardiovascular mortality with numbers. 2. Re-establish the link between hypertension and CKD including same points as above. Then ask if both CKD and SDB are combined, what happens to hypertension and cardiovascular mortality. 3. Lastly, talk about links between CKD and SDB on how each process feeds on the other and is a growing, common problem.
