IMPORTANCE: The incidence of obesity is rising in the United States and has been linked to Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) even in young children. Understanding the role that obesity and OSA play in alterations in metabolic variables that can lead to serious health issues is essential to the care and counseling of affected children. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the association of alterations in metabolic variables, including insulin resistance, to OSA in young, obese children...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the effect of chronic intermittent hypoxia caused by obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) and chronic continuous hypoxia caused by chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) on blood pressure and levels of nitric oxide (NO)/endothelin (ET). METHODS: A total of 85 cases were selected, including OSAHS patients over 18 years old visited this hospital from June to August 2006, stable COPD patients and healthy volunteers. According to the results of clinical questionnaire, pulmonary function test and polysomography (PSG), they were divided into 4 groups: non-smoking OSAHS patients (n = 26), smoking OSAHS patients (n = 22), patients with stable COPD (n = 17) and healthy control subjects (n = 20)...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: The time and resource intensive nature of the traditional two-night paradigm for diagnosing and titrating positive pressure therapy for Obstructive Sleep Apnea/Hypopnea (OSA/H) contributes to patient care cost and limitation of service availability. Although split night polysomography (PSG(SN)) algorithms can establish a diagnosis of OSA/H and establish a positive pressure prescription for many patients, there has been only limited evidence that this strategy does not impair acceptance and adherence to treatment...

Nine patients with severe obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS)--for whom several therapeutic approaches, including palatopharyngoplasty, had failed--were treated with a combined maxillary, mandibular, and hyoid advancement. Objective evaluation--performed before and 4 to 18 months after surgery, using nocturnal polysomography--indicated that the OSAS had improved or had disappeared. This surgical approach is beneficial for specific cases of OSAS, which can be identified by mandatory presurgical tests.
