Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is a risk factor for the complications caused by obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS). This study was aimed to evaluate the predictive value of RDW for the occurrence of cerebral infarction in patients with OSAHS.We conducted a prospective study of 129 consecutive patients who were admitted to the Sleep Laboratory of in the Tenth People's Hospital of Shanghai (China) with complaints of snoring, apnea, or daytime sleepiness. All patients underwent polysomnography between June 2011 and May 2012...

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a disorder characterized by repetitive collapse of the upper respiratory tract during sleep, occurs in about 4% of middle-aged men and 2% of women. The incidence of the disorder is rising due to an increase in obesity and ageing of the population. Patients with obstructive sleep apnea are at elevated risk of some endocrinal and metabolic disorders, which may lead to serious consequences including shortening of life expectancy. The recognition and understanding of interactions between local upper airway dysfunction and its endocrinal consequences is therefore vital...

OBJECTIVES: Aging, female sex, and urbanization increase the risk of sleep impairment. Sleep in urban-dwelling elderly African women has been sparsely studied. We studied the characteristics and correlates of sleep quality and habitual sleep duration in a primary care population of urban-living Nigerian women. METHODS: Sleep quality and sleep duration over the previous 1 month were estimated using the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI). Excessive daytime sleepiness, risk of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and depressive symptoms were also assessed...

Snoring, chronic rhinitis and fragmentation of sleep are common symptoms in pregnancy, especially in the third trimester. The prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea is also increased in pregnant women and can be associated with pregnancy induced hypertension, preeclampsia and diabetes mellitus. The fetus is as well exposed to a higher risk of prematurity and intra-uterine growth restriction. Given the lack of adequate screening tool, the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea is a challenge for the physician and a high degree of clinical suspicion is necessary in order to identify the patients at risk and propose an appropriate management...

Obstructive Sleep apnea can be caused by fluid shift from the legs to the neck that narrows the upper airway (UA) and contributes to changes in tracheal sound. Tracheal sound is generated from the turbulent airflow in the pharynx and respiratory airways and it has recently been used to estimate increases in neck fluid volume (NFV). However, tracheal sound is also highly variable among people, especially across the sexes. In this paper, a novel method is proposed to select tracheal sound features towards estimating NFV in men and women separately...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have documented a high prevalence of atrial fibrillation (AF) in individuals with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Central sleep apnea (CSA) has been associated with AF in patients with heart failure. However, data from prospective cohorts are sparse and few studies have distinguished the associations of obstructive sleep apnea from CSA with AF in population studies. METHODS AND RESULTS: We assessed the association of obstructive sleep apnea and CSA with incident AF among 2912 individuals without a history of AF in the SHHS (Sleep Heart Health Study), a prospective, community-based study of existing ("parent") cohort studies designed to evaluate the cardiovascular consequences of sleep disordered breathing...

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the main cause of death among adult men and women in the USA and impacts millions around the globe. Traditional risk factors for CVD include obesity, diabetes, hypertension and dyslipidemia. The modern-day epidemic of obesity not only increased the rate of CVD but also ushered in an additional CVD risk factor to be added to the list; that is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). In this review, we discuss the growing epidemic of obesity and OSA, highlighting the common pathogenic hypotheses linking these risk factors to CVD...

(Pro)renin receptor ((P)RR) is a multi-functional molecule that is related to both the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) and vacuolar H⁺-ATPase (v-ATPase), an ATP-dependent multi-subunit proton pump. Soluble (P)RR (s(P)RR), which consists of the extracellular domain of (P)RR, is present in blood and urine. Elevated plasma s(P)RR concentrations are reported in patients with chronic kidney disease and pregnant women with hypertension or diabetes mellitus. In addition, we have shown that plasma s(P)RR concentrations are elevated in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS)...

BACKGROUND: Snoring is frequently associated with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Previous studies have shown that bone mineral density was significantly lower in patients with OSA than in controls; however, these studies did not focus on fractures. Fragility fractures can lead to long-term disabilities and a decrease in quality of life. The present study aimed to investigate the association between snoring and fragility fractures. METHODS: This study included 2969 men and 3220 women aged 40 years and older from the Ansung and Ansan cohort studies in Korea...

Sleep related breathing disorders include central sleep apnea (CSA), obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), sleep-related hypoventilation, and sleep-related hypoxia. These disorders are frequent and growing in clinical relevance. The related chapter of the S3 guideline "Non-restorative sleep/Sleep disorders", published by the German Sleep Society (DGSM), has recently been updated in November 2016. Epidemiology, diagnostics, therapeutic procedures, and classification of sleep related disorders have been revised. Concerning epidemiology, a considerably higher mortality rate among pregnant women with OSA has been emphasized...
