Abstract

As women age and go through menopause, they suffer a higher incidence of sleep disorder, cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. In addition, evidences suggested that sleep disorder was an important pathological indicator for coronary heart disease. However, the relationship between different menopausal status, sleep disorder and cardiovascular diseases was unclear. Thus, we aim to assess the association between sleep disorder with arterial stiffness in females of 40-60 years free of cardiovascular diseases through self-administered Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) and brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV). Logistic regression revealed that sleep disorder (PSQI score ≥ 8) was an independent indicator for higher risk of elevated arterial stiffness (baPWV ≥ 1465.5 cm/s, upper tertile) beyond other established cardiovascular confounders in peri-postmenopause (OR 2.83, 95% confidence interval (CI) 2.00-4.00, p < 0.001), but not in premenopause (OR 1.67, 95% CI 0.71-3.90, p = 0.223). Collectively, it clearly indicates that sleep disorder in menopausal women is of prominent value to predict arterial stiffness.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 31 May 2017.
All research outputs
#9,896,753
of 11,174,763 outputs
Outputs from Scientific Reports
#39,499
of 47,902 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#222,912
of 267,428 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Scientific Reports
#2,519
of 3,106 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,174,763 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 47,902 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 15.3. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 267,428 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 3,106 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
