BLOOD PRESSURE CHANGES DURING HUMAN SLEEP.

Abstract

Systolic blood pressure measurements were made on normal human subjects throughout entire nights of natural sleep and were correlated with cyclical changes in electroencephalographic patterns. During the recurrent rapid-eye-movement phase of sleep mean blood pressure levels were found to be generally higher, and the minute-to-minute variability of level was much greater than during the remainder of sleep.
