PURPOSE: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a risk factor for complications with postoperative opioid use, and in those patients with known or suspected OSA, minimization of postoperative opioids is recommended. We hypothesize that despite these recommendations, surgical patients with known or suspected OSA are prescribed postoperative opioids at hospital discharge at similar doses to those without OSA. METHODS: This was a retrospective analysis of the electronic health records of surgical patients from 1 November 2016 to 30 April 2017 at a single academic institution...

BACKGROUND: Disruption of sleep and circadian rhythmicity is a core feature of mood disorders and might be associated with increased susceptibility to such disorders. Previous studies in this area have used subjective reports of activity and sleep patterns, but the availability of accelerometer-based data from UK Biobank participants permits the derivation and analysis of new, objectively ascertained circadian rhythmicity parameters. We examined associations between objectively assessed circadian rhythmicity and mental health and wellbeing phenotypes, including lifetime history of mood disorder...

Sleep related disorder causes diminished quality of lives in human beings. Sleep scoring or sleep staging is the process of classifying various sleep stages which helps to detect the quality of sleep. The identification of sleep-stages using electroencephalogram (EEG) signals is an arduous task. Just by looking at an EEG signal, one cannot determine the sleep stages precisely. Sleep specialists may make errors in identifying sleep stages by visual inspection. To mitigate the erroneous identification and to reduce the burden on doctors, a computer-aided EEG based system can be deployed in the hospitals, which can help identify the sleep stages, correctly...

INTRODUCTION: Basilar invagination can result from a variety of systemic diseases that can weaken the structural integrity of the craniocervical junction. Definitive treatment often requires ventral decompression along with posterior decompression and fusion. Endonasal odontoidectomy is a relatively new minimal access procedure, however, quality of life after this procedure has not been reported. METHODS: We reviewed a consecutive database of endonasal odontoidectomy patients and identified those having posterior decompression and fusion...

BACKGROUND: Healthy sleep is a fundamental component of physical and brain health. Insomnia, however, is a prevalent sleep disorder that compromises functioning, productivity, and health. Therefore, developing efficient treatment delivery methods for insomnia can have significant societal and personal health impacts. Cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBTI) is the recommended first-line treatment of insomnia but access is currently limited for patients, since treatment must occur in specialty sleep clinics, which suffer from an insufficient number of trained clinicians...

Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is common in the general population, particularly in the elderly. This syndrome is frequently responsible for severe cardiovascular complications. However, the indications for its treatment in the elderly remain controversial. We report the case of a 79-year-old man with severe, undiagnosed OSA who inhaled his fixed dental bridge during sleep. The inhaled foreign body came to rest in the lumen of the left main stem bronchus. The association of obesity with a body mass index of 30kg/m2 , snoring with breathing pauses reported by his partner, nocturia, morning headache and an Epworth score of 11 led to polysomnography which confirmed OSA with an apnoea/hypopnoea index of 53 per hour...

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) has multiple implications on patient quality of life. In particular, CTS may affect quality of sleep, causing sleep deprivation in extreme cases. Carpal tunnel release (CTR) surgery may aid in resolving these disturbances. The purpose of our study was to investigate whether patients who have undergone CTR have improved sleep quality and to determine the timeline for such improvement. Twenty-one patients were prospectively enrolled and followed-up for two years. They were asked to complete a Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), a pain visual analog scale (VAS), a sleep perception VAS, and both components Symptom Severity and Functional Status Scale from the Levine-Katz carpal tunnel questionnaire...
