• Behavioral
  • Cognitive Behavioral Social Rhythm Group Therapy is designed to improve mood and sleep by stabilizing social rhythms, increasing exposure to ambient light, changing dysfunctional bed/bedtime associations, activating the imagery system by changing nightmare content, and challenging dysfunctional automatic thoughts that might contribute to behavioral inactivation and nonadherence to the therapy protocol. (clinicaltrials.gov)

  • WASO
  • WASO was calculated as total time in awake epochs between sleep onset time (first stage 2 epoch) and the end of the primary recording period (8 hours after lights -off). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • daytime
  • Insomnia is a disorder defined as persistent difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep or non-restorative sleep which is associated with diminished daytime function without any identifiable underlying cause. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The diagnostic criteria for insomnia include a decreased ability to fall asleep or stay asleep, frequent nighttime awakening or poor quality sleep that is associated with daytime impairment such as fatigue, impaired attention, or daytime sleepiness. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • In response to the unmet clinical need for a safe and efficacious alternative treatment for primary insomnia, that in addition to treating quantitative sleep problems, would improve sleep quality and daytime functioning, a clinical development program on melatonin for the treatment of primary insomnia was initiated. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • mood
  • Neural targets that control thermogenesis, behavior, sleep, and mood can be affected by pro-inflammatory cytokines which are released by activated macrophages and monocytes during infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • KI1001(Circadin┬«, Prolonged release tablet which contains melatonin) has showed its efficacy to improve sleep quality in over 55 years old primary insomnia patients. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Respiratory therapists work in hospitals in the intensive care units (Adult, Pediatric, and Neonatal), on hospital floors, in Emergency Departments, in Pulmonay Functioning laboratories (PFTs), are able to intubate patients, work in sleep labs (polysomnograpy) (PSG) labs, and in home care specifically DME (Durable Medical Equipment) and home oxygen. (wikipedia.org)
  • Clinics
  • Movement Disorders, An Issue of Neurologic Clinics. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the outpatient setting Respiratory Therapists work as educators in asthma clinics, ancillary clinical staff in pediatric clinics, and sleep-disorder diagnosticians in sleep-clinics, they also serve as clinical providers in cardiology clinics and cath-labs, as well as working in pulmonary rehabilitation. (wikipedia.org)
  • asleep
  • Objective and subjective sleep parameters (e.g., total sleep time, time to fall asleep, time awake in night) will be measured. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Some users have reported unexplained sleepwalking while using zolpidem, as well as sleep driving, night eating syndrome while asleep, and performing other daily tasks while sleeping. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • Symptoms must also not have a more likely clinical cause, such as another type of anxiety disorder, come before the ingestion of the intoxicating substance, or last for an extended amount of time after stopping the use of the substance. (wikipedia.org)
  • Clinical trials and studies in animal models (including C. elegans) suggest that ketogenic diets provide neuroprotective and disease-modifying benefits for a number of adult neurodegenerative disorders. (wikipedia.org)
  • episodes
  • Rare reports of sexual parasomnia (sleep sex) episodes related to zolpidem intake have also been reported. (wikipedia.org)
  • secondary
  • Estrogen is one of the two major sex hormones in women (the other being progesterone), and is responsible for the development and maintenance of feminine secondary sexual characteristics, such as breasts, wide hips, and a feminine pattern of fat distribution. (wikipedia.org)
  • adequately
  • Zolpidem has not adequately demonstrated effectiveness in maintaining sleep, unless delivered in a controlled-release (CR) form. (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • One low quality study found that zopiclone is ineffective in improving sleep quality or increasing sleep time in shift workers - more research in this area has been recommended. (wikipedia.org)
  • Criteria
  • In addition to the criteria above, it is important to recognize that the diagnostic criteria for substance/medication-induced anxiety disorder are not met if the symptoms of panic come before the intoxication by the substance. (wikipedia.org)
  • daily
  • Many types of interactions involve both the nervous and immune systems including the physiological functioning of the two systems in health and disease, malfunction of either and or both systems that leads to disorders, and the physical, chemical, and environmental stressors that affect the two systems on a daily basis. (wikipedia.org)
  • total
  • TST is defined as the total time in sleep epochs from sleep onset time to the end of the primary recording period (8 hours after lights -off). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • works
  • While some disorders may affect the nervous and immune systems independently of one another, it is impossible to truly understand neuroimmnulogical science without a complex understanding of how each system works independently and also how they work together. (wikipedia.org)
  • often
  • Stress granule formation is often downstream of the stress-activated phosphorylation of eukaryotic translation initiation factor eIF2╬▒, but this isn't true for all types of stressors that induce stress granules. (wikipedia.org)
