STUDY OBJECTIVES: Catathrenia is an underrecognized nocturnal vocalization phenomenon that can be a source of perplexity to patients, bed partners, and medical providers. Catathrenia is distinct from both sleep talking (a parasomnia with loud talking during sleep) and snoring (noise due to vibration of upper airway soft tissues related to variations in airway resistance). The objective of this review is to provide an evidence-based resource to help the practitioner reliably evaluate and manage patients with this condition...

BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) is essential but polysomnography (PSG) is expensive and time consuming. Oximetry has been used as a less expensive indicator of OSAHS. The aim of the study was to evaluate the clinical utility of the combination of oximetry with four different questionnaires: Stop, Stop Bang (S-B), Berlin questionnaire (BQ), Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) in order to identify patients at risk for OSAHS compared with in-laboratory PSG...

The diagnosis and management of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are increasingly being performed in the home. In the home management pathway, patients with high pretest probability for OSA are first tested using home sleep apnea testing and if positive for OSA, are treated with automatic positive airway pressure (APAP). The home management pathway has been validated by multiple investigators1-3 and is considered an alternative pathway in guidelines for the evaluation and management of OSA.4 However, there are limitations to the routine use of this pathway...
