Sleep-related abnormal sexual behaviors (sexsomnia) are classified as a subtype of non-rapid eye movement sleep parasomnias. There are reported cases of control of sexsomnia with treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with continuous positive airway pressure. We present a case of sexsomnia controlled with the treatment of OSA with a mandibular advancement device.

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Many adults sleep with a significant other; thus, sleep disorder symptoms and treatments of one partner are likely to impact the other partner's health. A literature review was conducted to examine the impact of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and OSA treatments on partner-assessed sleep and daytime functioning and partner involvement in OSA treatment. METHODS: MEDLINE, EMBASE, and CINAHL searches yielded 38 pertinent quantitative and qualitative studies that described sleep and/or daytime functioning assessed in partners of patients with untreated OSA, sleep and/or daytime functioning assessed in partners who were referred for OSA treatment, including continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy, oral appliance (OA), or surgery, and/or associations between partner involvement and OSA treatment use...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Obesity and regional fat distribution, measured by neck fat mass percentage using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), correlate with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) severity in adults. In obese children, neck-to-waist-circumference ratio predicts OSA. This study examined associations between body fat percentage and distribution and sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) severity in obese youth, measured with DXA. METHODS: Cross-sectional retrospective study conducted at a tertiary children's hospital...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Home sleep apnea testing (HSAT) is increasingly available for diagnosing obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). One key limitation of most HSAT involves the lack of sleep staging, such that the respiratory event index is calculated using the total recording time (TRT) rather than total sleep time (TST). METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of n = 838 diagnostic polysomnography (PSG) nights from our center; n = 444 with OSA (4% rule, apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) ≥ 5), and n = 394 with AHI < 5...

Patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in long-term treatment with a mandibular advancement device (MAD) to increase the upper airway space, may develop changes in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and the orofacial function due to the protruded jaw position during sleep. The aim was to investigate the influence of long-term MAD treatment on the TMJs, orofacial function and occlusion. This prospective study included 30 men and 13 women (median age 54) with OSA (Apnoea-Hypopnoea Index (AHI): 7-57). They were examined with the Nordic Orofacial Test Screening (NOT-S), the Research Diagnostic Criteria for Temporomandibular Disorders (RDC/TMD) and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) of the TMJs...

Pregnancy, particularly late gestation, has been associated with a relatively high prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Intermittent hypoxia (IH), a hallmark of OSA, could impose significant long-term effects on somatic growth, energy homeostasis, and metabolic function in offspring. We hypothesized that IH during late pregnancy (LG-IH) may increase the propensity for metabolic dysregulation and obesity in adult offspring via epigenetic modifications. Time-pregnant female C57BL/6 mice were exposed to LG-IH or room air (LG-RA) during days 13-18 of gestation...

BACKGROUND: Polysomnography (PSG) is the gold standard test for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), but it incurs high costs, requires inconvenient measurements, and is limited by a one-night test. Thus, a repetitive OSA screening test using affordable data would be effective both for patients interested in their own OSA risk and in-hospital PSG. The purpose of this research was to develop a four-OSA severity classification model using a patient's breathing sounds. METHODS: Breathing sounds were recorded from 83 subjects during a PSG test...

We provide the first validation data on the Spanish version of the Brief Problem Monitor-Parent form (BPM-P), a recently developed abbreviated version of the 120-item Child Behavior Checklist for Ages 6 to 18 (CBCL/6-18) in young schoolchildren. Parents of a community sample of 521 children aged 6-8 answered the CBCL/6-18 yearly, and the 19 BPM-P items were examined; parents also provided different measures of psychopathology. Confirmatory factor analysis of the expected 3-factor model (attention, externalizing, and internalizing) showed adequate fit (root mean square error of approximation, RMSEA ≤ ...

BACKGROUND: Cardiorespiratory polysomnography (PSG) is considered the reference method for diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Due to waiting times and high costs, payers increasingly request outpatient polygraphy (PG) as an alternative to inpatient PSG. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of different outpatient PG devices compared to stationary PSG in clinical practice. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Externally collected outpatient PG findings of 406 patients were retrospectively compared with the corresponding PSG findings...
