Sustained reduction in the carriage of Neisseria meningitidis as a result of a community meningococcal disease control programme. (1/1759)

The effect of a community intervention programme of antibiotics and meningitis vaccine on pharyngeal carriage of Neisseria meningitidis was investigated. Carriage rates were determined in pupils at both secondary schools (ages 11-18 years) included in the community intervention programme and compared with two schools outside the area matched for socio-economic status. A total of 1869 pupils were studied 6 months after the programmes, and 2457 pupils after 11 months. Six months after the programme was completed there was a 72% reduction in pharyngeal carriage of Neisseria meningitidis in pupils attending the schools in the intervention area compared with pupils in the control schools. After 11 months this difference persisted in the 11-14 age group but not in the 15-18 age group. No resistance to the antibiotics used in the programme was found. A community intervention programme of antibiotics and vaccine for the control of meningococcal disease led to a long-term reduction in Neisseria meningitidis carriage in some age groups.  (+info)

Effect of obesity and erect/supine posture on lateral cephalometry: relationship to sleep-disordered breathing. (3/1759)

Craniofacial and upper airway anatomy, obesity and posture may all play a role in compromising upper airway patency in patients with the sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between obesity, facial structure and severity of sleep-disordered breathing using lateral cephalometric measurements and to assess the effect of body posture on cephalometric measurements of upper airway calibre variables in obese and non-obese subjects. Lateral cephalometry was carried out in erect and supine postures in 73 awake male subjects randomly selected from patients referred for polysomnography who had a wide range of apnoea/hypopnoea frequencies (1-131 events x h sleep(-1)). Subjects were divided into non-obese (body mass index (BMI) < 30 kg x m(-2); n=42) and obese (BMI > or = 30 kg x m(-2); n=31) groups. Significant but weak correlations were found between apnoea/hypopnoea index (AHI) and measurements reflecting upper airway dimensions: uvular protrusion-posterior pharyngeal wall (r=-0.26, p<0.05) and hyoid-posterior pharyngeal wall (r=0.26, p<0.05). Multiple regression using both upper airway dimensions improved the correlation to AHI (r=0.34, p=0.01). Obese subjects had greater hyoid-posterior pharyngeal wall distances than non-obese subjects, both erect (42+/-5 versus 39+/-4 mm, respectively (mean+/-SD) p<0.01) and supine (43+/-5 versus 40+/-4 mm, p<0.05). Skeletal craniofacial structure was similar in obese and non-obese subjects. In conclusion, measurements reflecting upper airway size were correlated with the severity of sleep-disordered breathing. Differences in upper airway size measurements between obese and non-obese subjects were independent of bony craniofacial structure.  (+info)

Cephalometric abnormalities in non-obese and obese patients with obstructive sleep apnoea. (4/1759)

The aim of this work was to comprehensively evaluate the cephalometric features in Japanese patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and to elucidate the relationship between cephalometric variables and severity of apnoea. Forty-eight cephalometric variables were measured in 37 healthy males and 114 male OSA patients, who were classed into 54 non-obese (body mass index (BMI) <27 kg x m(-2), apnoea-hypopnoea index (AHI)=25.3+/-16.1 events x h(-1)) and 60 obese (BMI > or = 27 kg x m(-2), AHI=45.6+/-28.0 events h(-1)) groups. Diagnostic polysomnography was carried out in all of the OSA patients and in 19 of the normal controls. The non-obese OSA patients showed several cephalometric defects compared with their BMI-matched normal controls: 1) decreased facial A-P distance at cranial base, maxilla and mandible levels and decreased bony pharynx width; 2) enlarged tongue and inferior shift of the tongue volume; 3) enlarged soft palate; 4) inferiorly positioned hyoid bone; and 5) decreased upper airway width at four different levels. More extensive and severe soft tissue abnormalities with a few defects in craniofacial bony structures were found in the obese OSA group. For the non-obese OSA group, the stepwise regression model on AHI was significant with two bony structure variables as determinants: anterior cranial base length (S-N) and mandibular length (Me-Go). Although the regression model retained only linear distance between anterior vertebra and hyoid bone (H-VL) as an explainable determinant for AHI in the obese OSA group, H-VL was significantly correlated with soft tissue measurements such as overall tongue area (Ton), inferior tongue area (Ton2) and pharyngeal airway length (PNS-V). In conclusion, Japanese obstructive sleep apnoea patients have a series of cephalometric abnormalities similar to those described in Caucasian patients, and that the aetiology of obstructive sleep apnoea in obese patients may be different from that in non-obese patients. In obese patients, upper airway soft tissue enlargement may play a more important role in the development of obstructive sleep apnoea, whereas in non-obese patients, bony structure discrepancies may be the dominant contributing factors for obstructive sleep apnoea.  (+info)

Craniofacial modifications in children with habitual snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea: a case-control study. (5/1759)

Habitual snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea in children, which are frequently associated with adenotonsillar hypertrophy, may begin early in life and in relation with orocraniofacial features. The aim of this study was to detect the presence of early bone craniofacial modifications in young children with a long history of habitual snoring. Twenty-six habitually snoring children (mean age 4.6 yrs) were studied by nocturnal portable recording or diurnal polysomnography, cephalometry and orthodontic evaluation. A comparison of cephalometric findings was made between the studied group and 26 age-matched children (mean age 5.1 yrs) with no history of snoring or respiratory problems during sleep. The cephalometric analyses showed a significant increase in craniomandibular intermaxillar, lower and upper goniac angles with a retroposition and posterior rotation of the mandible (high angle face) and a reduction in the rhinopharynx space caused by higher thickness of adenoids in habitually snoring children compared with controls. Cross-bites and labial incompetence as well as daytime symptoms and familiarity for habitual snoring were found in most of the studied group of snorers compared with controls. The results indicate that upper airway obstruction during sleep is associated with mild but significant cephalometric and craniofacial modifications in children complaining of habitual snoring. Whether this skeletal conformation is genetically determined or influenced by the early onset of habitual snoring remains to be assessed.  (+info)

Comparison of isolation media for recovery of Burkholderia cepacia complex from respiratory secretions of patients with cystic fibrosis. (6/1759)

Burkholderia cepacia selective agar (BCSA) has previously been devised for isolation of B. cepacia from respiratory secretions of patients with cystic fibrosis and tested under research laboratory conditions. Here we describe a study in which BCSA, oxidation-fermentation polymyxin bacitracin lactose agar (OFPBL), and Pseudomonas cepacia agar (PCA) were compared in routine culture procedures for the ability to grow B. cepacia and inhibit other organisms. Three hundred twenty-eight specimens from 209 patients at two pediatric centers and 328 specimens from 109 adults were tested. Plates were inoculated, incubated, and read for quality and quantity of growth at 24, 48, and 72 h. Five (1.5%) specimens from 4 (1.9%) children and 75 (22.9%) specimens from 16 (14.7%) adults grew B. cepacia complex. At 24, 48, and 72 h, BCSA achieved 43, 93, and 100% detection, respectively; OFPBL achieved 26, 84, and 96%, respectively; and PCA achieved 33, 74, and 84% detection, respectively. Quality was assessed as pinpoint or good growth. At 24 h, most cultures growing B. cepacia complex had pinpoint colonies. By 48 and 72 h, 48 and 69% of B. cepacia complex cultures, respectively, had good growth on BCSA, while on OFPBL 19 and 30%, respectively, had good growth and on PCA 11 and 18%, respectively, had good growth. BCSA was superior to OFPBL and PCA in suppressing organisms other than B. cepacia complex; 40 non-B. cepacia complex organisms were isolated from BCSA, 263 were isolated from OFPBL, and 116 were isolated from PCA. We conclude that BCSA is superior to OFPBL and PCA in its ability to support the growth of B. cepacia complex and to suppress other respiratory organisms.  (+info)

Primitive nervous systems: electrophysiology of the pharynx of the polyclad flatworm, Enchiridium punctatum. (8/1759)

1. Electrical activity accompanying motor activity can be recorded from the excised pharynx of Enchiridium punctatum. Multiple stimuli elicit behaviour which consists of an initial aperture closure followed by extension and then peristalsis. If the stimulus parameters are increased the preparation bends from side to side instead of proceeding through the behavioural sequence. Bending appears to inhibit other movements differentially. 2. The conduction involved with peristalsis is polarized and proceeds in a proximal direction. 3. With stimulus intensities greater than those needed to produce the behavioural response an initial muscle potential (IMP) is evoked. The IMP is frequency sensitive. Maximum facilitation occurs within 100 ms and drops to 50% of maximum within 250 ms. 4. Conduction velocities of the IMP range from 0-05 m s-1 to 1-9 m s-1. Conduction velocities appear to increase with facilitation.  (+info)

In the present study, C. pneumoniae was detected in throat swab specimens from pediatric patients with lower respiratory tract infections by PCR-EIA and by isolation in cell culture. The organism was recovered in culture from only 1 of 368 specimens tested. The reasons for the low sensitivity of culture in this study are unknown. Sensitivity of cell culture depends on a number of factors, such as sufficient numbers of viable chlamydiae, collection method, transport and storage conditions of specimens, and choice of cell lines. We examined throat swab specimens, and it is possible that these samples did not include enough cells which harbored the organism. We cannot exclude the possibility that the isolation rate ofC. pneumoniae might have been higher with other types of specimens. Comparative studies on the relative efficacy of throat swab, nasopharyngeal swab, and sputum samples for recovery ofC. pneumoniae from culture revealed that positive results were most frequently obtained with sputum ...

Functionally feeding and swallowing are complex processes divided into 4 phases, as shown in Figures 23-1 and 23-2. The first phase is the preoral phase, which is dependent upon the infant/childs sensation and communication of hunger. The second phase, the oral phase, is the oral cavity-food processing phase where food or liquid is formed into a bolus, enabling safe passage through the pharynx. The next steps in the swallow process are reflexive, and therefore, involuntary. In the ensuing pharyngeal phase, the bolus contacts the tonsillar pillars and pharyngeal wall, resulting in elevation of the larynx, closure of the vocal cords, and relaxation of the esophageal sphincter. Then, contraction of the pharynx deposits the food bolus in the esophagus. During the passage of the food bolus through the pharynx, coordination between breathing and swallowing is essential to prevent aspiration. The final phase, the esophageal phase, moves the food bolus into the stomach and then small intestine, where ...

When reconstructing combined defects of the cervical spine and the posterior pharyngeal wall the goals are bone stability along with continuity of the aerodigestive tract. We present a case of a patient with a cervical spine defect, including C1 to C3, associated with a posterior pharyngeal wall defect after excision of a chordoma and postoperative radiotherapy. The situation was successfully solved with a free fibula osteo-adipofascial flap. The reconstruction with a fibula osteo-adipofascial flap provided several benefits in comparison with a fibula osteo-cutaneous flap in our case, including an easier insetting of the soft tissue component at the pharyngeal level and less bulkiness of the flap allowing our patient to resume normal deglutition.. ...
The current study demonstrates that MCA, determined by acoustic pharyngometry, can significantly differentiate between those with mild/no-OSA versus moderate-to-severe OSA. When analyzed alongside other variables such as gender, age, and neck circumference, acoustic pharyngometry was the only independent predictor of detecting the absence of moderate-to-severe OSA. This easily obtained measurement thus has potential utility as a component in a diagnostic algorithm for OSA. With healthcare reform, sleep testing may become less readily available, making decisions to prioritize testing in certain patients important.. Acoustic pharyngometry may also be a useful objective tool in occupational health clinics. The population in certain environments may minimize subjective symptoms in sleep questionnaires, leading to the need for simple and cost-effective tools for objective assessments. In conjunction with basic anthropometric characteristics, pharyngometry can help objectively determine those at high ...
chambers of the nasal cavity to prevent damage to the lungs. The nasal and oral cavities are separated by the palate. The anterior, rigid portion is called the hard palate, and the posterior fleshy part is called the soft palate. The mouth and nose serve as secondary respiratory structures. Pharynx The pharynx, or throat, serves both the respiratory and digestive systems and aids in speech. It has a mucous membrane lining that traps microscopic particles in the air and aids in adjusting temperature and humidifying inspired (inhaled) air. The pharynx connects with the mouth and nasal chambers posteriorly. According to its location, the pharynx is referred to as the nasopharynx posterior to the nasal chambers), the oropharynx (posterior to the mouth), or the laryngopharynx (posterior to the pharynx).

Anatomical optical coherence tomography: a safe and effective tool for quantitative long-term monitoring of upper airway size and shape
The upper airway consists of the pharynx and the nasal cavities; however, some authors include the larynx and trachea as well. The pharynx is can be divided into the nasopharynx, oropharynx, and laryngopharynx.. The nose is composed of bone and cartilage, which are in turn attached to the facial skeleton. It is a pyramidal structure that is divided by a midline septum into two nasal cavities. The nasal cavities are lined with mucosa that can function to heat and humidify inspired gas. The paranasal sinuses drain into the nasal cavity. The posterior portion of the mouth opens into the oropharynx. When a patient is supine and unconscious, the tongue and lower jaw may slide posteriorly leading to airway obstruction within the oropharynx.. The pharynx is a U-shaped fibromuscular tube that extends from the base of the skull to the cricoid cartilage. It is bounded anteriorly and superiorly by the nasal cavity, followed more inferiorly by the mouth, and then the larynx. These borders divide the pharynx ...

If you feel fever and pain in the throat that means you are suffering from strep throat. This article is about how to get rid of strep throat. Strep throat is a very common problem among people especially children. It is also known as streptococcal pharyngitis. Strep throat is a throat infection that affects the tonsils, larynx and pharynx. It occurs due to Group A Streptococcus bacteria. Strep throat is basically a sign of having a cold. You will feel difficulty while swallowing.. Strep throat can be a serious problem and requires treatment. It is highly contagious and it commonly occurs during the winters. The symptoms of strep throat are sore throat, stomach ache, white patches on the throat, pain in the throat, vomiting and fever. You can treat strep throat with the help of antibiotics, some home and natural remedies.. Symptoms of Strep Throat:. ...

Hello again, I wanted to let you know something I learned about throat cultures. They do not always show what is growing in the lungs so it is better to do a sputum culture. It took me about 17 years to realize this, I do not know why my doctors never thought to do sputum cultures and test them against the throat cultures, as they, for me yielded entirely different results. Just for the future you might want to start having him do sputum cultures (when hes older) because it comes directly from the lungs and not so much of the flora in the back of the throat persay. I say when hes older because I can imagine it would be a lot harder to get a baby to hack or cough up a culture ...
After registering the before and after cone-beam volumetric tomography data using the basion region as a reference point, we can see the changes that have taken place in the pharyngeal airway, the maxilla and mandible, and the inferior turbinate. The green area shows the pre-treatment airway and tooth position. (Please note the lower central incisor as well as the airway.). We see that the maxilla and the mandible have come forward along with the tongue. Furthermore, we see that the posterior pharyngeal wall has toned up to widen the airway. We have a 360 degree improvement of the airway space. The lower turbinate has increased in size.. ...
In people suffering from obstructive apnoea, there is repetitive upper airway collapse during sleep. This condition affects four per cent of males and two per cent of females. The reason why airway collapse occurs in some, and not in others, is due to differences in airway anatomy - e.g., narrow passage, extended length of the pharynx [throat], and poor control of upper airway muscles that are responsible for keeping the airways open [dilators].. During wakefulness, our airways remain open, due to the high activity of upper airway muscles. However, when we sleep, this activity is reduced, or lost. It may also result in partial, or complete upper airway collapse. Other unknown reasons may also contribute to collapse.. During airway obstruction, there is no breathing taking place. The levels of oxygen in blood fall, and those of carbon dioxide rise. The body tries to compensate this change by increasing the force of breathing, but this doesnt work. Hence, such episodes often lead to arousal from ...
If you are wondering whether your painful sore throat is from a cold, allergies or strep here is help with how to tell the difference.. Sore throats can be caused by viruses or bacteria. The most common cause of sore throats are viruses. Viral sore throats are often accompanied by other cold symptoms that may include a runny nose, cough, red or watery eyes and sneezing. Other causes of sore throats include smoking, pollution or irritants in the air, allergies and dry air.. A sore throat is often the first sign of a cold or allergy congestion. Often a sore throat from a cold will get better or go away after the first two or three days.. Strep throat, which is an infection due to streptococcus bacteria, is another cause of a sore throat. With strep throat the soreness in the throat is often more severe and persists. In general the common symptoms of strep throat include a sore throat, fever, red and inflamed throat and swollen or tender lymph nodes on the sides of the upper neck.. People with ...
In most cases, it is hard to tell the difference between a viral sore throat and a strep throat based on physical exam. It is important, though, to know if the sore throat is caused by strep bacteria, as this calls for antibiotics to help prevent the complications that can happen with these bacteria.. As a result, most people, when they have the above symptoms, will get a strep test and throat culture to find out if it is an infection caused by strep. This will involve a throat swab in the healthcare providers office.. Quick tests, called rapid strep tests, may be done. This may immediately show as positive for strep and antibiotics can be started. If it is negative, part of the throat swab will be kept for a throat culture. This will further identify strep in 2 to 3 days. Your healthcare provider will discuss the treatment plan with you based on the findings. ...
These Perspectives (SIG 19) articles provide with information relevant to speech science research and education. Lulich and Pearson present two demonstrations in this technical report to illustrate the utility of 3D/4D ultrasound technology. First, the authors report that not only can structures be imaged which previously were impossible to identify from 2D ultrasound alone (e.g., piriform sinuses and posterior pharyngeal wall), but questions involving non-sagittal structures and asymmetrical tongue shapes, such as the pervasiveness and extensiveness of lateral contact between the tongue and the palate-teeth, can now be addressed non-invasively. Second, they also conclude that the fusion of ultrasound data with MRI images further enhances the utility of 3D/4D ultrasound, since it combines the strengths of ultrasound with the complementary strengths of the other modality, while mitigating the weaknesses of each. Richardson et al., compare various acoustical measures of sustained vowels ...
Lets discus the common and not so common neck cancer symptoms.. Neck cancer could occur in the pharynx, larynx, oropharynx or the Hypopharynx. Pharynx is a 5 to 6 inch hollow pipe and starts behind the nose and extends to the oesophagus. It enables the passage of food through its lumen. Larynx is also called as the voice box and contains the vocal cords and helps in phonation. The oropharynx is the part of the pharynx which connects the pharynx to the top of the throat. Hypopharynx is a part of the pharynx that is present behind and on either sides of the larynx. Neck cancer is more common in men and commonly affects people over the age of 50 years. Tobacco and alcohol use are the most common cause of oral and throat cancer. Eighty five percent of neck cancers are caused due to tobacco or alcohol usage. Those using tobacco and alcohol are at a higher risk of developing neck cancer as against those using either one of them. Nasopharynx cancers are more common among those of Asian origin, those ...
The present issue of the European Respiratory Review strongly emphasises the relevance of small airways disease in respiratory medicine. This fascinating topic is fast-growing and certainly represents a key aspect of current respiratory research. As stated by P.J. Sterk and E.H. Bel in their editorial, there is a big challenge with small airways! Thus, it is timely to investigate novel tools that can accurately evaluate airway anatomy and function in health and disease, as well as responses to therapy.. Imaging of the airways is the focus of the textbook CT of the Airways edited by P.M. Boiselle and D.A. Lynch. Imaging of the airways is a true art in medicine and this book is certainly an important help to any health professional requiring up-to-date information.. The introductory section of the book addresses airway anatomy and physiology, as well as pathology. The fi ve chapters in this section are an excellent introduction to the fi eld. The second part of the book discusses very important ...

Readiness for decannulation is assessed after three days of either real or sham electrical pharyngeal stimulation. In case a patient cannot be decannulated at that time point, there is an open-label follow-up treatment phase, in which every patient in the sham treatment arm gets another three days of real electrical pharyngeal stimulation to not deprive any patient of a potentially beneficial treatment ...
Obese children have more respiratory symptoms than their normal weight peers and respiratory related pathology increases with increasing weight. Some will need specialist assessment (box 1). Obesity produces mechanical effects on respiratory system performance. Breathlessness, wheeze, and cough are not related to increased airway responsiveness and may respond more to weight loss than bronchodilator therapy. A significant number of obese children have signs and symptoms of obstructive sleep apnoea largely related to the effect of obesity on upper airway dimensions. It seems likely that unless action is taken soon, increasing numbers of children will experience preventable respiratory morbidity as a result of nutritional obesity ...

The main findings of this study were that older males had greater pharyngeal calibre measured using acoustic reflection, and a longer combined retropalatal and retroglossal pharyngeal length, and larger soft palate and parapharyngeal fat pad size measured using MRI than younger males. These age-related pharyngeal morphological changes were independent of BMI and neck circumference.. The impact of age on pharyngeal calibre has been debated, with some [14]-[16] but not all [10], [17]-[20] studies finding greater pharyngeal calibre in older compared with younger males. This equivocal evidence may be due to poor screening and exclusion of undiagnosed OSA, as the prevalence of OSA is known to increase with age [1], [2]. In the present study, appropriate screening ensured the exclusion of undiagnosed OSA, with groups well matched for BMI, neck circumference, subjective daytime sleepiness, AHI, ODI and craniofacial morphology. This approach created a model to establish the effect of age per se on ...

With the weather being so wacky, the kids are all getting sick. We go from 40/50 degrees down to -9 pretty much over night. My daughter slowly got a sore throat, and a lite cough.

With the weather changing so much, the kids are bound to keep getting ...
Often, a throat that is infected with the strep bacteria will appear very red and inflamed. You may see whitish pus on the tonsils or red spots in the back of the throat. However, these findings are not diagnostic as they can be seen in viral infections as well.. If you are concerned that your child has strep throat based on the above symptoms, a visit to the doctor is in order. Your childs pediatrician will likely swab your childs throat to detect the presence of strep. Most doctors have a rapid strep test in the office, which is fairly reliable but can give false negatives. Some doctors may send a throat culture if the rapid test is negative but they are highly suspicious of strep, which typically takes two days for results.. If your child has been diagnosed with strep throat, he or she will need to be treated with antibiotics to clear the infection. Penicillin is the drug of choice, although most pediatricians will prescribe amoxicillin because it tastes better. If your child is unable or ...
Representational image. District in-charge minister J C Madhuswamy, said here that the throat swab samples of the sheep have been collected and sent to a laboratory at Bhopal for testing. The minister said that whether the sheep get infected by coronavirus is not known, duly adding that the sheep will be kept at a place till the reports are received.. Madhuswamy said that he is confident that normally coronavirus infection does not spread through the sheep, but this decision was taken as a measure of abundant precaution. He said that a decision on whether the sheep can be allowed to graze with the flock will be taken after the reports on the swab samples are received.. ...
COVID-19 viral nucleic acid is extracted from cough throat swab samples. Real-time reverse transcriptase PCR (RT-PCR) is performed by use of 1-step reverse transcription of RNA from the sample and then amplified by PCR. Internal positive and negative controls are included to ensure that each test performs correctly. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) designed RT-PCR assays for the detection of 2019-nCoV. Our test uses the same primers and probes used in CDC assays and has comparable in sensitivity and specificity to CDC assays. Sensitivity is ~98% and specificity is ~99.9%. This test is recommended by the FDA only under the current EUA (for emergency use) guidance, unless the authorization is terminated or revoked sooner. Aperiomics has submitted an application for FDA EUA (for emergency use) for Xplore-COVID-19™ testing. The testing is only for the detection of RNA from COVID-19 virus and not for any other viruses or pathogens.. ...

Strep throat (Streptococcal pharyngitis) is an extremely contagious diseased triggered by an infection caused by streptococcal bacteria. Obviously, the first sign you may have strep throat is an extremely sore throat that lasts more than 3 days.. Other symptoms generally include swollen lymph nodes in the neck, fever, and redness/swelling of the throat and tonsils. The telltale sign that your infected with the bacteria is white or yellow patches on the tonsils. To check for this its easiest to have a friend or loved one take a look in a well-lit environment while you open your mouth and say Ahhhh..

The doctor will rub a swab of fluid from your throat on a special dish and the dish will be left to sit for 2 nights. If you have strep throat, streptococci bacteria will usually grow in the dish within 1-2 days.. ...
Viral Pharyngitis is an inflammation that affects the pharynx of the throat. It is also referred to as sore throat. A sore throat induced by pharyngitis
Patients with a moderate pharyngeal collapsibility and low loop gain are likely to respond to MAD therapy, i.e. characteristics that have been identified as beneficial with respect to the mechanism of action of MAD treatment [8, 14]. Milder OSA patients have also been recognised as responders. The common use of the AHI to identify this complex disease and make recommendations for treatment has, however, been questioned [15]. The AHI has been found to be a weaker predictor to identify MAD treatment responders than previously believed and severe patients might also have a good outcome [16-18]. Instead, more advanced ways to interpret sleep apnoea recordings are under development [19, 20]. This will allow the identification of various phenotypes of sleep apnoea patients and provide a more promising way forward to find patients who respond to OSA treatment in different ways.. Non-responders to MAD therapy are more likely among severe OSA patients with non-positional OSA [21-23]. Evaluation of the ...

Strep is a bacterium meaning that it has a cell membrane, cytoplasm, DNA, and can replicate independently thereby rendering it susceptible to a host of antibiotics including penicillin. Viruses, on the other hand, lacking these same attributes do not respond to routine antibiotics.
