Sleepwalking precipitated by treatment of sleep apnea with nasal CPAP

Sleepwalking precipitated by treatment of sleep apnea with nasal CPAP

Chest 99(3): 750-751

A 33-year-old man with a long history of snoring, observed apneic episodes, and excessive daytime sleepiness, underwent all-night polysomnography, which demonstrated severe obstructive sleep apnea. During the nasal CPAP trial, two episodes of sleepwalking were observed during a period of delta sleep rebound.
