The association between leukocyte telomere lengths and sleep instability based on cardiopulmonary coupling analysis

Peer-Reviewed Scientific Journal:
Sleep and Breathing

Size of study:
381 healthy adults

Summary
This study used cardiopulmonary coupling analysis, which is an electrocardiogram-based technique to quantify physiologic sleep stability.  The findings suggested that shortened leukocyte telomere length might contribute to reduced sleep stability by interacting with obstructive sleep apnea severity due to the stress of chronic sleep interruption.
