STUDY OBJECTIVES: Nocturnal blood pressure (BP) dipping in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has not yet been well investigated in Chinese patients, in whom the relationship of OSA and body mass index (BMI) is weaker than that in Caucasians. The aim of this study was to evaluate the BP profile, and the relationships between nocturnal BP and the severity of OSA, in Chinese patients. METHODS: Consecutive Chinese adult outpatients with suspected OSA had overnight polysomnography (PSG), office BP, and 24-h ambulatory BP monitoring (ABPM)...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Melatonin is an important neurohormone, which mediates circadian rhythms and the sleep cycle. As such, it is a popular and readily available supplement for the treatment and prevention of sleep-related disorders including insomnia and jet lag. This study quantified melatonin in 30 commercial supplements, comprising different brands and forms and screened supplements for the presence of serotonin. METHODS: A total of 31 supplements were analyzed by ultraperformance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection for quantification of melatonin and serotonin...

A high prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has been reported in individuals with fragile X syndrome (FXS). Untreated OSA can further complicate both medical and cognitive sequel. Thus, identifying the diagnostic and treatment challenges that arise in these individuals is essential. We describe an adolescent with FXS who presented with significant OSA symptoms, and the challenges associated with management in this case.

STUDY OBJECTIVES: The Berlin questionnaire is a self-administered questionnaire that was developed to identify subjects with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in primary care settings. This study evaluated the performance of the questionnaire to predict OSA in the general population. METHODS: A sample of 242 subjects in a population-based cohort completed a home-based sleep study with an Embletta device (type 3 monitor). Subjects completed the Berlin questionnaire on the evening just prior to the sleep study...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Other than hypocretin-1 (HCRT-1) deficiency in narcolepsy type 1 (NT1), the neurochemical imbalance of NT1 and narcolepsy type 2 (NT2) with normal HCRT-1 levels is largely unknown. The neuropeptide melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) is mainly secreted during sleep and is involved in rapid eye movement (REM) and nonrapid eye movement (NREM) sleep regulation. Hypocretin neurons reciprocally interact with MCH neurons. We hypothesized that altered MCH secretion contributes to the symptoms and sleep abnormalities of narcolepsy and that this is reflected in morning cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) MCH levels, in contrast to previously reported normal evening/afternoon levels...

The use of wearable sleep tracking devices is rapidly expanding and provides an opportunity to engage individuals in monitoring of their sleep patterns. However, there are a growing number of patients who are seeking treatment for self-diagnosed sleep disturbances such as insufficient sleep duration and insomnia due to periods of light or restless sleep observed on their sleep tracker data. The patients' inferred correlation between sleep tracker data and daytime fatigue may become a perfectionistic quest for the ideal sleep in order to optimize daytime function...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Polysomnography is the gold standard for diagnosis and characterization of severity of sleep-disordered breathing. Accuracy and reliability of the technology used are critical to the integrity of the study's interpretation. Strict criteria for obstructive sleep apnea in children are lacking and diagnosis often requires consideration of both frequency of respiratory events in addition to other measures. Current American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommendations for pediatric patients includes use of respiratory inductance plethysmography (RIP) belts, whereas polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) belts are currently only acceptable for use in adults...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Several organizations have provided recommendations to ensure high school starts no sooner than 08:30. However, although there are plausible biological reasons to support such recommendations, published recommendations have been based largely on expert opinion and a few observational studies. We sought to perform a critical review of published evidence regarding the effect of high school start times on sleep and other relevant outcomes. METHODS: We performed a broad literature search to identify 287 candidate publications for inclusion in our review, which focused on studies offering direct comparison of sleep time, academic or physical performance, behavioral health measures, or motor vehicular accidents in high school students...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: In this study, we investigated the prevalence of symptoms of restless legs syndrome (RLS) in biological caregivers of children with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD).The relationship of RLS symptoms to caregiver health-related quality of life (HRQoL) was also examined. Finally, we compared the sleep quality and daytime behaviors of children with ASD in caregivers with and without symptoms of RLS. METHODS: Biological caregivers (N = 50) of children ages 6 to 11 y with a diagnosis of ASD completed a Sleep Habits Questionnaire (SHQ) that included RLS as determined by four questions...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: To describe a dynamic three-dimensional (3D) computed tomography (CT) technique for the upper airway and compare the required radiation dose to that used for common clinical studies of a similar anatomical area, such as for subjects undergoing routine clinical facial CT. METHODS: Dynamic upper-airway CT was performed on eight subjects with persistent obstructive sleep apnea, four of whom were undergoing magnetic resonance imaging and an additional four subjects who had a contraindication to magnetic resonance imaging...

Ms. C, a 20-year-old female was referred for a sleep evaluation for hypersomnia. She reported increasing sleepiness over a period of one year. She described a pattern of retiring to bed at 2000 hours with an initial sleep latency of 10 minutes. She would sleep uninterrupted until 0630 hours and wake to an alarm clock. She avoided napping during the day. Her history was otherwise not suggestive of narcolepsy or sleep apnea. She was not on any medications and had a medical history significant only for celiac sprue...

OBJECTIVES: To determine if signals generated by a new sleep monitor (Prodigy) are comparable to signals generated during in-laboratory polysomnography (PSG). METHODS: Fifty-nine patients with various sleep disorders (25 with moderate/ severe sleep apnea) were studied. Full PSG was performed using standard acquisition systems. Prodigy was attached to the forehead with four disposable snap electrodes. Four additional electrodes were attached to monitor eye movements and muscle activity, and to serve as reference (mastoid)...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Stimulated reporting occurs when patients and healthcare professionals are influenced or "stimulated" by media publicity to report specific drug-related adverse reactions, significantly biasing pharmacovigilance analyses. Among countries where the non-benzodiazepine hypnotic drug zolpidem is marketed, the US experienced a comparable surge of media reporting during 2006-09 linking the above drug with the development of complex neuropsychiatric sleep-related behaviors...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: This preliminary study investigated the tolerability and efficacy of a novel mattress technology - the Sound-To-Sleep (STS) system - in the treatment of sleep problems in children with autism. METHODS: After screening, 45 children, ages 2.5 to 12.9 years, were randomized to order of mattress technology use (On-Off vs. Off-On). Treatment conditions (On vs. Off) lasted two weeks with immediate crossover. Tolerability, including study discontinuation and parent-report of mattress tolerance and ease of use, was tracked throughout the study...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Autotitrating continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) devices adjust pressure in response to changes in airflow and are an alternative to attended in-laboratory titration polysomnography (PSG) to determine optimal pressure levels. The aim of this study was to compare the performance of the System One RemStar Auto A-Flex (Philips Respironics, Murrysville, PA, USA) automatically adjusted positive airway pressure (APAP) mode to manually titrated, fixed pressure CPAP and to validate the device's breathing event detection capabilities against attended in-laboratory PSG...
