This report presents the results of the work by a joint task force of the International and European Restless Legs Syndrome Study Groups and World Association of Sleep Medicine that revised and updated the current standards for recording and scoring leg movements (LM) in polysomnographic recordings (PSG). First, the background of the decisions made and the explanations of the new rules are reported and then specific standard rules are presented for recording, detecting, scoring and reporting LM activity in PSG...

BACKGROUND: There is evidence linking restless legs syndrome (RLS) with increased blood pressure (BP), but the mechanism of this relation remains unclear. Is the BP increased due to some features of RLS or to deterioration of sleep caused by RLS? This study compared values of nocturnal BP in patients with RLS and patients with insomnia. If increased BP in RLS is a consequence of disordered sleep, then it should be similar to increased BP in insomnia. METHODS: Polysomnographic recordings of patients admitted to a sleep center with RLS or insomnia were analyzed...

Dopaminergic drugs have been used as the first-line treatment for restless legs syndrome (RLS) for many years and are considered to be, at least over the short-term, effective and safe. However, the main long-term complication of dopaminergic treatment is augmentation, which is an overall increase in symptom severity and intensity, with symptoms starting earlier in the afternoon and expanding to previously unaffected parts of the body. Augmentation is a common complication, with prevalence rates of nearly 50%, and is a common cause of treatment failure...

BACKGROUND: Guided Internet cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBTI) offers an effective treatment for adolescents, but little is known about the active ingredients of therapeutic feedback on outcomes. OBJECTIVE: This study aims to identify which factors can be distinguished in written therapeutic feedback in Internet CBTI, and examine whether these factors and participation in a chat session contribute to sleep outcomes. METHODS: Internet CBTI was applied to 57 adolescents (mean age 15...

Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a complex disorder that involves sensory and motor systems. The major pathophysiology of RLS is low iron concentration in the substantia nigra containing the cell bodies of dopamine neurons that project to the striatum, an area that is crucial for modulating movement. People who have RLS often present with normal iron values outside the brain; recent studies implicate several genes are involved in the syndrome. Like most complex diseases, animal models usually do not faithfully capture the full phenotypic spectrum of "disease," which is a uniquely human construct...

OBJECTIVE: The aims of this study were: to evaluate a homogeneous sample of truck drivers of dangerous goods (TDDGs) in order to assess the prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and to verify the secondary risk of motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) and near miss accidents (NMAs) in this population. METHODS: A sample of 283 male TDDGs was evaluated. None of the subjects reported OSA symptoms before screening. Clinical and physical evaluation, Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS), and the items on OSA from the Sleep Disorder Score (SDS) questionnaire were used to select subjects with suspicion of OSA...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to investigate the prevalence of central sleep apneas syndrome (CSAS) in children with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) and the effect of adenotonsillectomy (A)TE on CSAS. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of polysomnographic data in children diagnosed with OSAS and without comorbidity. A central apnea index (CAI) ≥1/h is considered abnormal and central sleep apnea syndrome (CSAS) is diagnosed at a CAI >5/h. Data are presented as median (25-75 percentile)...

Behrouz Jafari, Vahid Mohsenin
BACKGROUND: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a highly prevalent disorder affecting 15-24% of adults and triples the risk for hypertension independent of other risk factors. The exact mechanisms of endothelial dysfunction and variable susceptibility to hypertension in OSA are not entirely clear. No biomarker to date has been found to be associated with hypertension in OSA. Chitinase-3-like protein-1(YKL-40) is a circulating moiety with roles in injury, repair and angiogenesis that is dysregulated in atherosclerosis and correlates with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the relationship between prenatal maternal stress, resilience, and sleep quality, and to determine whether resilience plays a mediating role in the relationship between prenatal maternal stress and sleep quality among pregnant women. METHODS: Two hundred and thirty-one pregnant women in their second trimester participated in the study. They completed questionnaires, including: the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), the Pregnancy Stress Rating Scale (PSRS), and the 10-item Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC-10)...
