Behavioral Perspectives on Abnormalities of Breathing during Sleep

  • Christian Guilleminault

Abstract

Research on respiration during sleep accelerated in 1965 when Gastaut, Tassinari, and Duron discovered that certain obese patients with daytime somnolence experience abrupt, repetitive obstruction of the airway hundreds of times during a night of sleep. Since then studies of adults and infants have demonstrated that respiratory physiology during sleep differs dramatically from that of wakefulness (Orem and Barnes, 1980; Phillipson, 1978).
