To determine the incidence of hypertension and its risk factors among rural Chinese women with prehypertension and normotension.
Our study demonstrates that, compared to subjects with CH or normotension, those with RH have shorter total and REM sleep times and lower sleep efficiency independently of OSA.
The age-adjusted incidence rate was higher in prehypertension than in normotension (11.2/100 person-years vs. 7.9/100 person-years,
P = 0.06) and 11.6 min (P = 0.04) less time in REM sleep compared to those with CH and normotension, respectively.
P = 0.02) and 37.2 min (P = 0.02) less than those with CH and normotension, respectively.
