Background Arterial stiffness and its hemodynamic consequences are known to be associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Pulse wave velocity (PWV) and augmentation index (AIx) are noninvasive indicators of the arterial stiffness and wave reflection. Sleep deprivation (SD) is known to be associated with increased incidence of adverse cardiovascular events. The aim of this study was to investigate whether there is an association between acute SD and arterial stiffness parameters in healthy adults, which has not been studied previously.
