A titratable thermoplastic mandibular advancement device (MAD) is clearly an effective treatment option in some patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Determining which patients may be more likely to respond to treatment with thermoplastic MADs and to adhere to treatment would be of obvious clinical relevance. This was an experimental descriptive study (N = 60). Patients with OSA were instructed to wear a titratable thermoplastic MAD for 3 months. Treatment success was defined as a ≥50% reduction from baseline in the apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) or AHI <10 when wearing MAD...

BACKGROUND: Ostructive sleep apnea (OSA) is an independent risk factor for the development of cardiovascular events. Platelet activation and inflammation are the mechanisms involved in the association between OSA and cardiovascular disease (CVD). The markers of platelet activation and inflammation are the mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet-lymphocyte ratio (PLR), red cell distribution width (RDW), neutrophil- lymphocyte ratio (NLR). We aimed to define the association of NLR, PLR, RDW, and MPV with the severity of disease and the presence of CVD...

PURPOSE: Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is reported to have an association with bone mineral density (BMD). However, the underlying mechanism is far from clear. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between OSAS, bone turnover markers, and BMD and to evaluate the effect of adiponectin on BMD in patients with OSAS. METHODS: Seventy-one male patients with OSAS and 13 male control subjects were enrolled in this study. Serum adiponectin, calcium, phosphorus, 25-hydroxyvitamin-D3, β-isomerized form C-terminal telopeptide of type I collagen, osteocalcin, and procollagen type 1 N-propeptide were measured in all subjects, and BMD was evaluated by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) in the lumbar spine (L1-L4), the femoral neck, and the hip total...

Periodic leg movements during sleep (PLMS) are the most important objective finding in restless legs syndrome (RLS). During the last decade, PLMS have been very important for the assessment and comprehension of their pathophysiological correlates, which have been paralleled by the emergence of new computer-assisted and data-driven rules for their identification, scoring, and analysis. The present article focused on the most relevant PLMS-related findings of the last decade, and sought to provide a coherent and comprehensive overview on this enigmatic motor phenomenon...

Tension-type headache (TTH) is the most prevalent primary headache. Chronic TTH (CTTH), the most serious form of TTH, is refractory, with a high socio-economic burden. Research studies have shown patients with migraine often had cognitive impairment, but few studies have focused on the cognition in CTTH patients. In the present study, we assumed that patients with CTTH also have cognitive impairments, which are modulated by the neuroendocrine state. Participants were recruited, including CTTH patients and healthy controls...

There is limited and inconclusive evidence surrounding the physiological and perceptual responses to heat stress while sleep deprived, especially for females. This study aimed to quantify the effect of 24 h sleep deprivation on physiological strain and perceptual markers of heat-related illness in females. Nine females completed two 30-min heat stress tests (HST) separated by 48 h in 39°C, 41% relative humidity at a metabolic heat production of 10 W · kg(-1). The non-sleep deprived HST was followed by the sleep deprivation (SDHST) trial for all participants during the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle...
