The outlines of the current manuscript are: 1. Re-establish the link between hypertension
and SDB including prevalence, mechanism, and reversal of process (i.e. improvement in hypertension
with improvement in SDB), why it is important-cardiovascular mortality with numbers. 2. Re-establish
the link between hypertension and CKD including same points as above. Then ask if both CKD and
SDB are combined, what happens to hypertension and cardiovascular mortality. 3. Lastly, talk about
links between CKD and SDB on how each process feeds on the other and is a growing, common problem.
Keywords: Chronic kidney disease, sleep apnea, hypertension, dialysis, overnight fluid shift.
