Sleep Apnea Treatment Might Reverse Unhealthy Brain Changes: – MONDAY, Sept. 14, 2015 – – Sleep apnea treatment may reverse changes in human brain stem activity associated with elevated risk of heart disease, a fresh study suggests. The findings ‘highlight the effectiveness of CPAP treatment in reducing one of the most significant health issues [heart disease] connected with obstructive sleep apnea,’ the researchers concluded. CPAP stands for continuous positive airway pressure. Previous research suggests that people with obstructive sleep apnea have higher activity in nerves associated with stress response, which can result in high blood heart and pressure problems. This increased nerve activity is due to altered brain stem function caused by sleep apnea, earlier research have shown.
