sleep patterns; stress

An Exploratory study of the patients' sleep patterns and inflammatory response following cardio-pulmonary bypass

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To describe sleep patterns and inflammatory response postCPB, determine sleep pattern changes and inflammatory response over time and explore relationships between sleep and biomarkers of stress and inflammation.

BACKGROUND: Despite the numerous citations of the role of sleep in restoration and health maintenance, a paucity of research exists about this phenomenon in patients undergoing CPB. Specifically, there is no research that has explored correlations between sleep patterns and systemic inflammatory response in adult cardiac surgery patients.
