Objective: This study uses polysomnography and the Epworth sleepiness scale to assess the efficiency of the Ocluch© MAD in patients with Obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (OSAS), on overall respiratory disturbance indices (RDI), supine respiratory disturbance index (SRDI), minimum oxygen saturation, microarousals, CT90 (or ID90), sleep efficacy and snoring. These data are associated with skeletal class and facial biotype in order to establish predictive parameters for its effectiveness according to craniofacial morphology...

This cross-sectional study evaluates the prevalence and extent to which high risk for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with general obesity and central obesity among college students in Punta Arenas, Chile. Risk for OSA was assessed using the Berlin Questionnaire and trained research nurses measured anthropometric indices. Overweight was defined as body mass index (BMI) of 25-29.9 kg/m(2) and general obesity was defined as BMI ≥ 30 kg/m(2). Central obesity was defined as waist circumference ≥90 centimeters (cm) for males and ≥80 cm for females...

Cryotechnology is a modality of renewed interest in pain management. It is safe and effective when used to treat neuropathies of sensory and mixed nerves. Cryoablation, in general, is devoid of the risk of neuroma formation and can provide several weeks to months of adequate pain relief. Traditionally, cryoablation was applied blindly to the target area. The use of ultrasound guidance may improve the efficacy and reduce morbidity. We report a case of a successful cryoablation of the femoral component of the genitofemoral nerve using ultrasound guidance in a patient with chronic inguinal pain...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: to estimate the prevalence of the most common sleep related symptoms (SRS) in the metropolitan areas of Mexico City, Montevideo (Uruguay), Santiago (Chile), and Caracas (Venezuela). METHODS: The study consisted of a multistage cluster sampling of adults aged > or = 40 years living in metropolitan areas. All participants completed a questionnaire on sleep related symptoms. Simplified respiratory polygraphy during sleep was conducted on 188 subjects from Mexico City...

BACKGROUND: The use of CPAP is the conventional therapy for the Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS). AIM: To establish the proportion of OSAS patients with CPAP indication who use it in the long-term and to determine predictive factors of adherence. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Structured survey through personal interview or phone call, applied to all patients who had polisomnographically documented OSAS and CPAP titration at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile Sleep Disorders Center between January 1998 and November 2001...

OBJECTIVE: The phenomenon of postobstructive pulmonary edema (POPE) has been associated with the relief of upper airway obstruction, which itself is fundamental to the pathophysiology of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). A review of patients with OSA undergoing tracheotomy was performed to characterize this process. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective chart review of study patients with OSA undergoing tracheotomy and of control patients without OSA undergoing tracheotomy for unrelated problems...
