BP raised by night noise13th February 2008
Scientists have shown the noise from a snoring partner can raise a sleeper’s blood pressure by as much as a low-flying aircraft.
Researchers from Imperial College London monitored 140 volunteers in their homes near Heathrow and three other European airports and found that the noise levels reaching the bedroom had the same effect of those from a partner snoring nearby. The results, published in the European Heart Journal, found that blood pressure went up in direct relation to noise loudness.
