Abstract

Penile erections occur three to five times per night during rapid eyemovement (REM) sleep. The association between these sleep-related erections (SREs) and REM sleep begins around the age of 3 months. In patients with diabetes, spinal injuries, end-stage renal disease, pelvic trauma, or other organic pathologies, SREs differ from those of healthymales, whereas patients with performance anxiety have a normal SRE pattern. Monitoring SREs is an objective method for determining erectilepathophysiology. There is a strong but not perfect correlation between the degree of SRE impairment smd the ability to function sexually For example, people with diabetes who report the ability to function sexually also have SREs that differ Corn normal control subjects. Measures of SREs appear more sensitive to subtle physiological changes than do tests of erectile functioning when patients are awake. Studies of SREs indicate that in addition to peripheral vascular and autonamic problems, central autonomic dysfunctions may contribute to SRE abnormalities and erectile failure. Finally, the monitoring of SREs has led to the detection of other pathophysiologies, such as sleep apnea, that contribute to impotence, apparently because of associated cardiovascular and endocrine problems.
