Disorders characterized by multiple cessations of respirations during sleep that induce partial arousals and interfere with the maintenance of sleep. Sleep apnea syndromes are divided into central (see SLEEP APNEA, CENTRAL), obstructive (see SLEEP APNEA, OBSTRUCTIVE), and mixed central-obstructive types.
A disorder characterized by recurrent apneas during sleep despite persistent respiratory efforts. It is due to upper airway obstruction. The respiratory pauses may induce HYPERCAPNIA or HYPOXIA. Cardiac arrhythmias and elevation of systemic and pulmonary arterial pressures may occur. Frequent partial arousals occur throughout sleep, resulting in relative SLEEP DEPRIVATION and daytime tiredness. Associated conditions include OBESITY; ACROMEGALY; MYXEDEMA; micrognathia; MYOTONIC DYSTROPHY; adenotonsilar dystrophy; and NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p395)

Improvement of factor VII clotting activity following long-term NCPAP treatment in obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome. (1/1461)

Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) is a very common disorder. Patients with OSAS are at an increased risk for cardiovascular events. It has also been reported that a 25% rise in factor VII clotting activity (FVIIc) is associated with a 55% increase in ischaemic heart disease death during the first 5 years. We examined the effects of nasal continuous positive airway pressure (NCPAP) treatment on FVIIc in patients with OSAS. FVIIc was investigated prospectively in 15 patients with OSAS before (mean +/- SEM apnoea and hypopnoea index (AHI) 61.5 +/- 4.2 and after (AHI 3.0 +/- 0.9) NCPAP treatment for immediate relief, at 1 month after treatment and at over 6 months. FVIIc levels gradually decreased after NCPAP treatment. After 6 months of NCPAP treatment, FVIIc levels had decreased significantly (before 141.1 +/- 11.7% vs. after 6 months 110.7 +/- 6.2%; p < 0.01). Six of the seven patients whose FVIIc levels were over 140% before the NCPAP treatment had FVIIc levels below 130% after 6 months or 1 year of NCPAP treatment. This decrease in FVIIc after long-term NCPAP treatment could improve mortality in OSAS patients. If patients, especially obese ones, present with high FVIIc of unknown origin, it would be prudent to check for OSAS.  (+info)

Effect of obesity and erect/supine posture on lateral cephalometry: relationship to sleep-disordered breathing. (2/1461)

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. (3/1461)

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. (4/1461)

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)

Depression of peripheral chemosensitivity by a dopaminergic mechanism in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome. (5/1461)

In the present study, respiratory drives to chemical stimuli and peripheral chemosensitivity were evaluated in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSAS). The effects of oral administration of domperidone, a selective dopamine D2-receptor antagonist, were also examined, to study the respiratory effects of endogenous dopamine on peripheral chemoreceptors. Sixteen patients with OSAS and nine normal control subjects were studied. Respiratory responses to hypercapnia and hypoxia were measured using the rebreathing method and isocapnic progressive hypoxia method, respectively. The hypoxic withdrawal test, which measures the decrease in ventilation caused by two breaths of 100% O2 under mild hypercapnic hypoxic conditions (end-tidal oxygen and carbon dioxide tensions approximately 8.0 kPa and 5.3-6.7 kPa, respectively), was used to evaluate peripheral chemosensitivity. In the patients with OSAS, ventilatory responses to hypercapnia and hypoxia were significantly decreased compared with those of control subjects. Hypoxic withdrawal tests showed that peripheral chemosensitivity was significantly lower in patients with OSAS than in normal subjects. Hypercapnic ventilatory response and peripheral chemosensitivity were enhanced by administration of domperidone in the patients with OSAS, although no changes in either of these were observed in the control subjects. The hypoxic ventilatory response and peripheral chemosensitivity in the patients with OSAS were each significantly correlated with severity of hypoxia during sleep. These findings suggest that peripheral chemosensitivity in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome may be decreased as a result of abnormality in dopaminergic mechanisms and that the reduced chemosensitivity observed in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome may affect the severity of hypoxia during sleep.  (+info)

Selective potentiation of peripheral chemoreflex sensitivity in obstructive sleep apnea. (6/1461)

BACKGROUND: The chemoreflexes are an important mechanism for regulation of both breathing and autonomic cardiovascular function. Abnormalities in chemoreflex mechanisms may be implicated in increased cardiovascular stress in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). We tested the hypothesis that chemoreflex function is altered in patients with OSA. METHODS AND RESULTS: We compared ventilatory, sympathetic, heart rate, and blood pressure responses to hypoxia, hypercapnia, and the cold pressor test in 16 untreated normotensive patients with OSA and 12 normal control subjects matched for age and body mass index. Baseline muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) was higher in the patients with OSA than in the control subjects (43+/-4 versus 21+/-3 bursts per minute; P<0. 001). During hypoxia, patients with OSA had greater increases in minute ventilation (5.8+/-0.8 versus 3.2+/-0.7 L/min; P=0.02), heart rate (10+/-1 versus 7+/-1 bpm; P=0.03), and mean arterial pressure (7+/-2 versus 0+/-2 mm Hg; P=0.001) than control subjects. Despite higher ventilation and blood pressure (both of which inhibit sympathetic activity) in OSA patients, the MSNA increase during hypoxia was similar in OSA patients and control subjects. When the sympathetic-inhibitory influence of breathing was eliminated by apnea during hypoxia, the increase in MSNA in OSA patients (106+/-20%) was greater than in control subjects (52+/-23%; P=0.04). Prolongation of R-R interval with apnea during hypoxia was also greater in OSA patients (24+/-6%) than in control subjects (7+/-5%) (P=0.04). Autonomic, ventilatory, and blood pressure responses to hypercapnia and the cold pressor test in OSA patients were not different from those observed in control subjects. CONCLUSIONS: OSA is associated with a selective potentiation of autonomic, hemodynamic, and ventilatory responses to peripheral chemoreceptor activation by hypoxia.  (+info)

The association between sleep apnea and the risk of traffic accidents. Cooperative Group Burgos-Santander. (7/1461)

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: Drowsiness and lack of concentration may contribute to traffic accidents. We conducted a case-control study of the relation between sleep apnea and the risk of traffic accidents. The case patients were 102 drivers who received emergency treatment at hospitals in Burgos or Santander, Spain, after highway traffic accidents between April and December 1995. The controls were 152 patients randomly selected from primary care centers in the same cities and matched with the case patients for age and sex. Respiratory polygraphy was used to screen the patients for sleep apnea at home, and conventional polysomnography was used to confirm the diagnosis. The apnea-hypopnea index (the total number of episodes of apnea and hypopnea divided by the number of hours of sleep) was calculated for each participant. RESULTS: The mean age of the participants was 44 years; 77 percent were men. As compared with those without sleep apnea, patients with an apnea-hypopnea index of 10 or higher had an odds ratio of 6.3 (95 percent confidence interval, 2.4 to 16.2) for having a traffic accident. This relation remained significant after adjustment for potential confounders, such as alcohol consumption, visual-refraction disorders, body-mass index, years of driving, age, history with respect to traffic accidents, use of medications causing drowsiness, and sleep schedule. Among subjects with an apnea-hypopnea index of 10 or more, the risk of an accident was higher among those who had consumed alcohol on the day of the accident than among those who had not. CONCLUSIONS: There is a strong association between sleep apnea, as measured by the apnea-hypopnea index, and the risk of traffic accidents.  (+info)

Prognostic value of nocturnal Cheyne-Stokes respiration in chronic heart failure. (8/1461)

BACKGROUND: Nocturnal Cheyne-Stokes respiration (CSR) occurs frequently in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF), and it may be associated with sympathetic activation. The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether CSR could affect prognosis in patients with CHF. METHODS AND RESULTS: Sixty-two CHF patients with left ventricular ejection fraction /=30/h and left atria >/=25 cm2. CONCLUSIONS: The AHI is a powerful independent predictor of poor prognosis in clinically stable patients with CHF. The presence of an AHI >/=30/h adds prognostic information compared with other clinical, echocardiographic, and autonomic data and identifies patients at very high risk for subsequent cardiac death.  (+info)

Patients with sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome commonly demonstrate impaired daytime performance. In a prospective study, 29 patients with sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome were assessed polysomnographically to determine the relationship of cognitive performance and daytime sleepiness with sleep disruption …
BACKGROUND--Increasing referral numbers make the development of simplified accurate methods of diagnosing the sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome highly desirable. The accuracy of one such system--the ResCare Autoset--has been examined. METHODS--Thirty one consecutive patients assessed by polysomnography had simultaneous monitoring of their respiratory pattern using the Autoset system. The Autoset detects episodes of flattening of the flow/time profile using nasal cannulae. RESULTS--There was a good correlation (r = 0.85) between the number of apnoeas+hypopnoeas/hour in bed recorded using polysomnography and the Autoset system. The median difference in such events was 3.1 (95% confidence interval 8.4 to -1.6)/hour in bed. In two patients the Autoset scored 70 apnoeas+hypopnoeas/hour in bed compared with 34 apnoeas+hypopnoeas with 35 arousals/hour in bed by polysomnography; however, this did not alter the diagnostic category of either patient. Autoset gave a sensitivity of 100%, specificity of 92%, ...

1. Inspiratory flow limitation is involved in the pathophysiology of sleep-related breathing disorders. Since the definition of flow-limited cycle is based on a dissociation between flow and respiratory efforts, identification of inspiratory flow limitation requires upper airway or intrathoracic pressure measurements. We examined the accuracy of the analysis of the flow-volume loop of a tidal breath in identifying inspiratory flow limitation during sleep in ten patients with a sleep apnoea-hypopnoea syndrome. 2. Measurements were taken during continuous positive airway pressure trials. After data acquisition, the presence of inspiratory flow limitation was identified by the presence of an inspiratory plateau or decrease in inspiratory flow independently of the increase in inspiratory efforts. The flow-volume loop was reconstructed for each breathing cycle by plotting the instantaneous flow and the tidal volume. The instantaneous inspiratory and expiratory flows were measured at 50% of the respective
Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a common sleep related breathing disorder. Its prevalence is estimated to be between 2% and 25% in the general population. However, the prevalence of sleep apnea is much higher in patients undergoing elective surgery. Sedation and anesthesia have been shown …
Sleep-disordered breathing is a disorder of breathing during sleep characterized by prolonged increased upper airway resistance, partial upper airway obstruction, or complete obstruction that disrupts pulmonary ventilation, oxygenation, or sleep quality. Pediatric sleep-disordered breathing is a continuum, with primary snoring at 1 end and complete upper airway obstruction, hypoxemia, and obstructive hypoventilation at the other, giving rise to obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep-disordered breathing is associated with a wide variety of symptoms in children. Snoring is the most common nighttime symptom of sleep-disordered breathing in children. Chronic snoring, although common in adults, is considered abnormal in a pediatric population. Other symptoms associated with sleep-disordered breathing can include restless sleep, frequent arousals, snorting, gasping, unusual sleeping positions (eg, sitting), sweating during sleep, and nocturnal enuresis. The most prominent daytime symptom of sleep-disordered ...
Sleep apnea syndrome is clinically defined by frequent pauses in breathing during sleep and symptoms, such as being tired. It can decrease the restfulness of sleep and decreases the level of oxygen in the blood. Sleep apnea patients suffer from daytime sleepiness, hypertension, coronary artery disease (CAD), stroke, ischemic heart disease, arrhythmias, pulmonary hypertension, heart failure, and premature death. There is significant evidence suggesting that nighttime decreases in blood oxygen levels are the primary cause of many of the abnormalities associated with this disease.. Epidemiological studies have demonstrated a surprisingly high prevalence of sleep apnea. Mild sleep apnea is present in 17% of adults in the general population and moderate to severe sleep apnea is present in 5.7% of adults. Among patients with heart failure the prevalence skyrockets. Multiple studies have found the prevalence of moderate to severe sleep apnea to be anywhere from 11-53% in heart failure ...

In the new study, the researchers followed 664 African-Americans with hypertension who were participants in the Jackson Heart Study, the largest investigation of causes of cardiovascular disease in African-Americans. The researchers tested the participants for obstructive sleep apnea (the most common kind) with a special device used overnight in the home. Researchers classified sleep apnea as unaffected, mild, moderate, or severe based on the number of times a person either partially or completely stopped breathing during sleep. The tests revealed that more than a quarter of the participants had moderate or severe sleep apnea and that the condition had gone undiagnosed in almost all of them-i.e., 94 percent of the cases. The remaining participants had either no sleep apnea, or a milder form of it. ...
Sleep apnea or sleep apnoea is a sleep disorder characterised by pauses in breathing during sleep. These episodes, called apneas (literally, without breath), each last long enough so one or more breaths are missed, and occur repeatedly throughout sleep. There are two distinct forms of sleep apnea: Central and Obstructive. Breathing is interrupted by the lack of effort in Central Sleep Apnea, but from a physical block to airflow despite effort in Obstructive Sleep Apnea. In Mixed Sleep Apnea, both types of events occur. Regardless of type, the individual affected with sleep apnea is rarely (if ever) aware of having difficulty breathing, even upon awakening. Sleep apnea is recognised as a problem by others witnessing the individual during episodes, or is suspected because of its effects on the body (sequelae). This book presents important new research in this field.Lang, Andrew O. is the author of Sleep Apnea Syndrome Research Focus , published 2007 under ISBN 9781600215285 and ISBN ...
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a chronic condition, characterized by recurrent episodes of upper airway collapse during sleep, which affects up to 5% of adults in the Western population. The muscle tone of the human body ordinarily relaxes during sleep, thus causing airway obstruction and leading to sleep apnea. We report a case of a 68-years old male in which dystonic closure of the larynx during sleep caused OSAS. The sleep endoscopy was crucial in establishing the diagnosis of laryngeal dystonia.
Occasionally its possible to have sleep apnea prior to being conscious of it. Sleep apnea is significantly more serious than many realize. Severe sleep apnea can triple your odds of stroke.. Sleep Apnea is extremely common among American adults. It is a major sleep disorder wherein a person abruptly wakes up in the middle of sleep because of blockage in the airway. While its not normally thought of as a serious disease it can have a very negative impact on your life and,if left untreated,could lead to death. If youre aware that you have got sleep apnea,or even suspect that,then speak to your physician about assembling a sleep study so you can get fitted for a CPAP. Therefore,in case you have severe sleep apnea and other therapies have not helped,you want to be certain to speak with your healthcare provider about operation as a possible choice.. } Staying at a wholesome weight is 1 approach to reduce apnea.

Sleep Apnea Screening. This month CNN.com had an article that was on screening for sleep apnea. The article discusses how sleep apnea cant usually be detected by doctors during routine office visits but screening from your dentist may help. Recent studies have shown that teeth grinding is a major indicator for obstructive sleep apnea. Dentists can screen for teeth grinding. The article clarifies that a dentist can tell you definitively if you grind your teeth or not but they do not diagnose sleep apnea. Medical specialists are the only medical providers who can officially diagnose and treat sleep apnea. The article highlights that sufferers of sleep apnea may never get the benefits of the deep sleep. Symptoms of untreated sleep apnea include feeling sleepy or tired during waking hours, grinding teeth and snoring. Sleep apnea is a condition that affects an estimated one in fifteen Americans, but often goes unnoticed. Sleep apnea can range from mild to severe. The most common sleep apnea is ...
To breathe regularly and smoothly at night is not only socially correct but also healthy. Individuals who snore with trepidation and have lapses in their respiratory rhythm while asleep may be at increased risk of suffering a stroke, as Mohsenin points out in the preceding article.. The role of disruptive snoring and sleep apnea disorder, or sleep-disordered breathing (SDB), in circulatory alteration and vascular injury is a concept of recent development.R1 Evidence of an association between SDB and sustained systemic hypertension, has become available recently. Results from the large community-based Sleep Heart Health StudyR2 indicate that there is a dose-response relationship between SDB and hypertension. The adjusted odds of hypertension increased steadily with apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) values of 15/h to 20/h and higher measured at home, surpassing odds ratios of 2 for very high AHI values. In a similar prospective study of SDB and hypertension, the Wisconsin Sleep Cohort StudyR3 showed that ...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: To assess the prevalence of sleep-disordered breathing in a nonselected group of children with Down syndrome and to determine significant predisposing factors for this condition. DESIGN: Prospective study. SETTING: Tertiary care university hospital in Madrid, Spain. PATIENTS: The study population included 108 consecutive children with Down syndrome (mean [SD] age, 7.9 [4.5] years; range, 1-18 years) independently of whether or not suggestive clinical features of sleep-disordered breathing were present. INTERVENTIONS: In addition to history, physical examination, and lateral radiographs of the nasopharynx, all participants underwent an overnight cardiorespiratory polygraphy at the hospital using a portable ambulatory device (Apnoescreen II plus). An apnea-hypopnea index of at least 3 was required for defining the presence of sleep-disordered breathing. RESULTS: The prevalence of sleep-disordered breathing was 54.6%, with a significantly higher prevalence in boys (64.7%) than in ...
What we dont know from these results is whether sleep apnea is a factor in causing stroke, or whether people who suffer strokes are then more likely to develop sleep apnea. When a person suffers from sleep apnea, their airway collapses during sleep. This airway collapse temporarily cuts off breathing and diminishes the levels of oxygen in the bloodstream. People who suffer from moderate to severe sleep apnea have episodes of disrupted breathing dozens, even hundreds, of times per night. (In this most recent study, researchers defined severe sleep apnea as 30 or more episodes of disrupted breathing per hour of sleep.) Learning more about how disordered breathing affects the brain and may contribute to stroke risk is a critical avenue for additional research ...
Snoring and Sleep Apnea are very often linked. Sleep Apnea Syndromes by nature affect how one breathes in sleep. Because of this, many peoples bed partners will have witnessed different breathing patterns that will result in further evaluation for sleep apnea conditions. Snoring is the most common respiratory disturbance in sleep. It results from a partial airway obstruction that serves as a whistle causing the snoring noises. Snoring however does not confirm Obstructive Sleep Apnea syndrome, however, as snoring can exist without any sleep disruption, apneas, or hypopneas. The important point is that if a partial obstruction exists and is causing snoring, then the same obstruction may be causing a sleep apnea condition.. Other breathing patterns that are described during sleep include actual periods where the individual is noted to pause in breathing. Also, gasping for air after a pause is common, and can be frightening for the observer. Noises can range from a soft snore to a coarse loud ...

Professor Mary Ips main research interest is sleep related breathing disorders, with a focus on vascular and metabolic consequences of obstructive sleep apnea. Her clinical and translational research embrace a spectrum from epidemiology to patient management. Her work in the late 1990s identified the prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome of 4% and 2% in middle-aged Chinese men and women in Hong Kong respectively, which was comparable to that reported in Caucasian populations at that time. Since then, research focussed on OSA and cardiometabolic disorders and the pathogenetic mechanisms, including the roles of obesity and craniofacial factors, adipokines, insulin resistance, endothelial function. In parallel, basic research deploying the intermittent hypoxia models in animal (rats and mice) and cell cultures (endothelial cells, adipocytes, and others) were used to investigate the potential cellular and molecular pathways in the regulation of metabolic or cardiovascular ...

Sleep apnea is characterized by frequent prolonged interruptions of breathing during sleep. This syndrome causes severe sleep disorders and is often responsible for development of other diseases such as heart problems, high blood pressure and daytime fatigue, etc. After diagnosis, sleep apnea is often successfully treated by applying positive air pressure (CPAP) to the mouth and nose. Although effective, the (CPAP) equipment takes up a lot of space and the connected mask causes a lot of inconvenience for the patients. This raised interest in developing new techniques for treatment of sleep apnea syndrome. Several studies indicated that electrical stimulation of the hypoglossal nerve and muscle in the tongue may be a useful method for treating patients with severe sleep apnea. In order to be able to successfully prevent the occurrence of apnea it is necessary to have some technique for early and fast on-line detection or prediction of the apnea events. This paper suggests using measurements of ...
Infant sleep apnea is a sleep related breathing disorder. It involves reductions and pauses in breathing that occur during an infants sleep.
SAN FRANCISCO - New research from Taiwan shows that severe sleep apnea is a risk factor for developing diabetic macular edema, a complication of diabetes that can cause vision loss or blindness. Diabetic macular edema was also more difficult to treat in patients with severe sleep apnea. While earlier research showed a weak connection between the two conditions, evidence is mounting that sleep apnea exacerbates underlying eye disease. The researchers present their study today at AAO 2019, the 123rd Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. When people with diabetes have poor control over their blood sugar levels, the tiny blood vessels at the back of the eye can become damaged. This condition is called diabetic retinopathy and its a leading cause of blindness in the United States. Sometimes, tiny bulges protrude from the blood vessels, leaking fluid and blood into the retina. This fluid can cause swelling or edema in an area of the retina that allows us to see clearly.

However because sleep apnea is strongly associated with obesity, and its related diseases, it has been difficult in the past to produce clear evidence that increased mortality is a result of OSA and not because of other established causes. That evidence is now available and shows that moderate to severe sleep apnea is associated with about five times the risk of dying after you control for other factors that are already known to cause premature death.. Dr Marshall said the study results highlight a need to increase research funding to investigate whether treatment of sleep apnea can decrease heart attacks, strokes and premature deaths. There is a need for high quality clinical trials looking at treatments for sleep apnea that are large enough and long enough to find out whether we can prevent disease or reduce mortality risk.. Professor Ron Grunstein, Head of Sleep and Circadian Research, Woolcock Institute said, Obstructive sleep apnea is a deadly disease and it is now time for public ...
We got home Sunday evening from Chicago, spent some quality time with the kiddos, then hit the ground running Monday morning.. Selah had her ENT appointment to discuss her enlarged tonsils that seem to be the culprit of her severe sleep apnea. Her tonsils are a size 3 (0 being no tonsils and 4 being tonsils so large they actually touch each other). The ENT is scheduling Selah for a tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, ear tubes, and a sedated hearing exam (ABR). With all of Selahs brain malformations, shes never had a hearing exam (we had a failed attempt at her ENT appointment). Selah will not be able to have prescription pain medication following her surgery because shes under age six and has severe sleep apnea. I have a call in to Selahs neurologist to discuss possible medications to help Selah with her pre-surgery anxiety (in the waiting room at the hospital), as well as post-op meds (Selah must spend the night in the hospital because shes under age six and has severe sleep apnea). Its going ...
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a prevalent sleep related breathing disorder associated with several anatomical abnormalities of the upper airway. Acoustic parameters of human speech are influenced by properties of the vocal tract, which includes the upper airway. We hypothesize that it is possible to differentiate OSA patients from non-OSA (healthy) subjects by analyzing potential patients speech signals. using speaker recognition and signal processing techniques, we designed a system for classifying a given speech signal into one of the two groups. the database for this research was constructed from 92 subjects who were recorded reading a one-minute speech protocol immediately prior to a full polysomnography study; one hundred and three acoustic features were extracted from each signal; seven independent Gaussian mixture models (GMM)-based classifiers were implemented; a fusion process was designed to combine the scores of these classifiers and a validation procedure took place in order to ...
The study found that a total number of 2,757 subjects contracted pneumonia during the study. Of that number, subjects with sleep apnea accounted for 9.36 percent of that number, while the control group only accounted for 7.77 percent. The analysis made from the study showed that those suffering from sleep apnea were more likely to develop pneumonia than those who had no trouble sleeping.. Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder in which pauses in breathing or moments of shallow and infrequent breathing occur during sleep. Each pause, or apnea, in breathing can last anywhere from 10 seconds to several minutes, and can occur up to thirty times per hour.. Prior to this study, research regarding the correlation between sleep apnea and incident pneumonia was non existent, except for in sleep apnea patients who suffered from continuous positive airway therapy.

Sleeping disorders impact people in different ways. For some people, they may feel they do not have a problem - except for the fact that their sleeping partner complains about their snoring. For others, they may know they have a snoring issue because they constantly wake themselves up gasping for air. This is a dangerous condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea OSA (a - without; pnea - breath).

The realities of life with sleep apnea may seem foreboding. Still, there is one other important reality: sleep apnea is a treatable condition, and with the right equipment, the symptoms and side effects of sleep apnea can be reduced or even eliminated.. There are two effective ways to treat sleep apnea. One is with continuous positive airway pressure or the CPAP machine. The sleeper wears a mask over the face, attached to a hose and a motorized unit. When you wear the mask, a supply of gently pressurized air moves continually through your airway. Your airway remains open, ensuring you get enough oxygen when youre asleep.. The second treatment is an oral device that you wear for sleeping. It holds your jaw or tongue in a better position to help your airway stay open when you sleep. Its suitable for those with mild sleep apnea, and for people who snore. This device is an oral appliance you can get from your dentist after an evaluation and sleep study test.. ...

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is the most common sleep related breathing disorder. OSA occurs when the tissue in the back of the throat collapses, narrowing the throat passageway during sleep either partially or completely blocking the airways. This can happen because muscles in the throat relax while you sleep, and gravity then causes the tongue to fall back and block the airways. Airway blockage can cause breathing problems and may stop breathing for several seconds many times during the night. Symptoms can include loud snoring, choking, gasping for breath, non-restful sleep, fatigue and feeling sleep deprived throughout the day. OSA can occur in both men and women of all ages; but it is most common in overweight, middle-aged men. There is a strong correlation between weight and OSA. When you gain weight, your neck tends to get thicker increasing the amount of fat in the back of the throat narrowing the airway; consequently your airway is more likely to become blocked. People with OSA often have a ...
For those who are looking for a sleep apnea cure, sleep apnea surgery is the last resort unless the condition is life threatening. There are other treatment methods to try before resorting to sleep apnea surgery. Some of the treatment methods are lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, drinking and overeating. Others are through the use of a machine such as the CPAP machine, which keeps a constant flow of air to the person throughout the night. There are also devices that can be obtained from the dentist to help and reposition the jaw so that the tongue and other tissues are not as likely to block the airway. There are even pillows that are especially made to be used by sleep apnea sufferers, which help to keep the head in place during the night, or will help to keep the person from sleeping on his back.. Procedures Of Sleep Apnea Surgery. Once these other treatment methods have been tried, or if the sleep apnea is dangerous to the persons life, then the sleep apnea surgical treatments can ...

It is known that acute or chronic heart failure can develop in patients with grave sleep apnea syndrome (SAS), and known to have the social problem including an accident and the decrease of the labor will. Several medical treatments are now available for SAS. We considered problems of the treatment based on the practice situation of our department about the present conditions and subsequent treatment. The subjects consisted of 306 patients. We measured Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) and apnea hypopnea index (AHI) after polysomnography in all patients at the first time and 6 months later. So, it was found that AHI and ESS decreased when we could be treated in the SAS patients appropriately. It was confirmed that the choice of the appropriate regimen was important.
This study showed that sleep apnea is an independent risk factor for incident pneumonia. Our results also demonstrated an exposure-response relation in that patients with more severe sleep apnea may have a higher risk of pneumonia than patients with sleep apnea of milder severity.. In a study involving hospital-admitted patients with sleep apnea, Spurr and colleagues8 found that pneumonia was one of the most common reasons for admission. Another study by Morimoto and coauthors10 showed that, among older inpatients with sleep apnea, mortality from all causes was increased as well as from pneumonia. A nested case-control study showed that, among children with sleep apnea, those with pneumonia had a higher rate of obstructive sleep apnea (79/1546, 5%) than those without pneumonia (6/441, 1.3%) (p , 0.001).9 In contrast to several studies that showed an association between sleep apnea and pneumonia, Sanner and associates11 found that patients with sleep apnea who received CPAP therapy (n = 206) had ...
University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) researchers received $2.9 million from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases to study the outcomes of patients with sleep apnea and chronic kidney disease.. Chronic kidney disease is characterized by a slow, progressive decline in kidney function. If untreated, the disease leads to end-stage renal failure, which requires dialysis or a kidney transplant. The two most common risk factors are high blood pressure and diabetes.. A previous study led by Ana Ricardo, MD, MPH, MS, UIC associate professor of medicine in the College of Medicine, demonstrated that poor sleep quality and short sleep duration speeds up the progression of kidney disease.. That research led us to our new study in which we will evaluate how sleep-disordered breathing might impact the progression of chronic kidney disease, Ricardo says in a release. The most common type of sleep-disordered breathing is obstructive sleep apnea, which is characterized by the ...

Fatigue, a foggy mind, and irritability are all signs youre not getting enough sleep-and neither might your sleeping partner from your continuous snoring. You might have a common form of sleep-related breathing disorder (SRBD) known as obstructive sleep apnea.. Sleep apnea occurs when the airway becomes obstructed (usually by the tongue), resulting in a lack of oxygen. The body rouses from sleep just enough to correct the obstruction. This can occur and interrupt deep sleep several times a night, causing the aforementioned problems as well as personality changes, high blood pressure or increased stomach acid reflux. If the problem persists, sleep apnea could also become a long-term factor in the development of heart disease, diabetes or other serious conditions.. Fortunately, we can do something about it. While some may require more invasive intervention, most cases of sleep apnea can be alleviated through continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. In this therapy, an electrical pump ...
