Tal Katz, Jeffrey Schatz, Carla W Roberts
PURPOSE: Sickle cell disease (SCD) imparts an increased risk for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in childhood. Studies of pediatric SCD have identified an increased risk for pain and neurologic complications with comorbid OSA. We determined the rate of a broad range of SCD-related medical complications to better characterize the spectrum of SCD complications related to OSA. METHODS: Retrospective chart review at a single hematology clinic identified 641 youth with SCD who received consistent screenings for OSA as part of routine hematological health maintenance visits over an 11-year period...

BACKGROUND: Immune disorders impair sleep quality and sleep disorders (SDs) may derange immune function. PURPOSE: The study evaluated the incidence and risk of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in patients with SDs using a nationwide cohort. METHODS: We recognized the patients with SDs from 1998 to 2002 by using the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database. One control patient for each SD patient was randomly selected and matched based on the proportion of age, sex, and index year...

PURPOSE: This study aims to determine patients' pre-operative and post-operative experiences relating to surgical treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), while understanding how patients' perceptions influence their outcome and satisfaction. METHODS: This is a phenomenological qualitative study using a semi-structured interview to evaluate patients who failed continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment of obstructive sleep apnea and underwent airway surgery...

PURPOSE: Obstructive sleep apnea has been associated with chronic inflammation triggered by nocturnal hypoxemia. The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a measure of subclinical systemic inflammation. We hypothesize that NLR levels would improve as chronic inflammation diminishes in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients treated with mandibular advancement devices (MADs). METHODS: We studied patients with OSA who were treated with MAD as a first-line treatment or because they could not tolerate CPAP...

BACKGROUND: It has been reported that the clinical expression of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may differ in women and men. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of gender on reported OSA-related symptoms in a large clinical population of patients. METHODS: The database from the sleep laboratory of a tertiary care center was examined. Adult patients who had undergone a diagnostic polysomnography and completed the Berlin questionnaire, a sleep questionnaire, and the Epworth sleepiness scale were selected...

INTRODUCTION: Although several studies suggested that sleep-related breathing disorder (SRBD) is a frequent symptom of multiple system atrophy (MSA), whether SRBD has influence on the motor and non-motor symptoms of MSA is unknown. METHODS: A total of 40 MSA patients and 40 healthy volunteers (HVs) underwent video-polysomnography (PSG) in the current study. All the MSA individuals were assessed using the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS), Unified Multiple-System Atrophy Rating Scale (UMSARS), Hamilton Depression Scale (HAMD), Hamilton Anxiety Scale, Frontal assessment battery (FAB), Parkinson's Disease Questionnaire-39 (PDQ-39), and the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA)...

OBJECTIVE: The clinical-population impact of positive airway pressure (PAP) on depressive symptoms in sleep disordered breathing (SDB) awaits clear documentation. We hypothesized that depressive symptoms improve in response to PAP treatment in a large clinical setting, and that lower socio-economic status poses barriers to full therapeutic response. METHOD: We performed a retrospective cohort study of SDB patients attending a tertiary ambulatory sleep center between January 1, 2010 and December 31, 2015...

PURPOSE: Clinical methods to identify responders to oral appliance (OA) therapy for obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) are needed. Awake nasopharyngoscopy during mandibular advancement, with image capture and subsequent processing and analysis, may predict treatment response. A qualitative assessment of awake nasopharyngoscopy would be simpler for clinical practice. We aimed to determine if a qualitative classification system of nasopharyngoscopic observations reflects treatment response...

PURPOSE: There is conflicting data regarding the independent associations of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with metabolic risk in obese youth. Previous studies have not consistently addressed central adiposity, specifically elevated waist to height ratio (WHtR), which is associated with metabolic risk independent of body mass index. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to determine the independent effects of the obstructive apnea-hypopnea index (OAHI) and associated indices of nocturnal hypoxia on metabolic function in obese youth after adjusting for WHtR...

PURPOSE: Present study was aimed to investigate the prevalence and knowledge about different aspects of somnambulism in general population of Buner District, KP, Pakistan, during December 2015-November 2016. METHODS: Data was collected through convenient sampling technique which was comprised of structured and detailed questionnaire. Collected data regarding different actions performed by sleepwalkers were adjusted through a weighted variable to generalize results...

PURPOSE: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) syndrome is a common condition that can impact clinical outcomes among patients with cardiovascular disease. Screening all subjects with heart disease via polysomnography (PSG) is costly and resource-limited. We sought to compare a Holter monitor-based algorithm to detect OSA to in-laboratory polysomnography (PSG). METHODS: Prospective cohort study of patients undergoing in-laboratory attended PSG for the evaluation of OSA...

PURPOSE: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common sleep disorder affecting health-related quality of life (QoL), and OSA severity is not a reliable indicator for QoL. The aim of this study was (1) to evaluate the impact of gender on QoL and (2) to identify the predictors of QoL in OSA patients. METHODS: World Health Organization Quality of Life Scale short form (WHOQOL-Bref) was used for evaluating QoL in OSA patients undergoing polysomnography in sleep laboratory of a university hospital...

PURPOSE: ApneaLink is a portable device for the screening of sleep apnea, a prevalent and underdiagnosed comorbidity in heart failure patients. A prospective cross-sectional study in patients with chronic heart failure was carried out to assess the sensitivity and specificity of apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) measurements using ApneaLink against the standard polysomnography test. METHODS: Adult patients with a prior hospitalization in an acute heart failure hospital unit were recruited for the study...

PURPOSE: The Munich Chronotype Questionnaire (MCTQ) assesses actual sleep-wake timing and has advantages compared to prior chronotype questionnaires in that it differentiates sleep-wake patterns between work days and free days and uses corrected mid-sleep time on free days after correcting for accumulated sleep debt over the week to categorize chronotype. The current study, we validated the Korean version of the MCTQ. METHODS: In this study, 310 participants (mean age = 27...

PURPOSE: This study investigated the basal autonomic regulation in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) showing periodic limb movements in sleep (PLMS) emerging after therapy with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). METHODS: Data of patients with OSA undergoing a first polysomnography for diagnosis and a second polysomnography for therapy with CPAP were reviewed. Patients with OSA showing PLMS on the first polysomnography were excluded. By using heart rate variability analysis, epochs without any sleep events and continuous effects from the second polysomnography were retrospectively analyzed...

REVIEW
Shanshan Jin, Suwen Jiang, Airong Hu
The relationship between obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has been an issue of great concern. The primary purpose of this study was to determine the influence of OSA on the levels of liver enzymes including alanine transaminase (ALT) and aspartate transaminase (AST). The secondary purpose was to estimate the effect of OSA on the histological lesions of NAFLD, such as steatosis, lobular inflammation, ballooning degeneration, fibrosis, as well as NAFLD activity score (NAS)...
