Authors: Kalkbrenner C, Brucher R, Kesztyüs T, Eichenlaub M, Rottbauer W, Scharnbeck D Abstract The current gold standard for assessment of most sleep disorders is the in-laboratory polysomnography (PSG). This approach produces high costs and inconveniences for the patients. An accessible and simple preliminary screening method to diagnose the most common sleep disorders and to decide whether a PSG is necessary or not is therefore desirable. A minimalistic type-4 monitoring system which utilized tracheal body sound and actigraphy to accurately diagnose the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome was previously develo...

This study aimed to examine the prevalence of REM-related OSA in narcolepsy patients. Methods From January 2013 to April 2018, 141 adult patients were diagnosed with narcolepsy using nocturnal polysomnography and the multiple sleep latency test. The prevalence of REM-related OSA in narcolepsy patients was retrospectively reviewed. Three criteria were used to determine REM-related OSA: Definition #1, an overall apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) ≥5 and AHI during REM (AHIREM)/AHI during non-rapid eye movement (NREM) (AHINREM) ≥2; Definition #2, an overall AHI ≥5 and AHIREM/AHINREM≥2 and AHINREM

This study is a comprehensive meta-analysis of adult polysomnography parameters scored using recent criteria and establishes normative values adjusted for age and sex.MethodsFor this meta-analysis of adult polysomnography parameters, we searched Scopus for studies of any design published between Jan 1, 2007, and July 31, 2016, that reported polysomnographic parameters scored using recent American Academy of Sleep Medicine criteria (2007 or 2012) collected during an overnight level 1 in-laboratory sleep study in healthy controls. We excluded studies of patients with conditions or subjected to treatments that might affect sl...

Prurigo nodularis (PN) is characterized by intensely-pruritic hyperkeratotic nodules. The role of Oncostatin M receptor beta (OSMR β), the shared receptor subunit for IL-31 and oncostatin M (OSM) signaling, involved in pruritus, inflammation and fibrosis, in PN pathogenesis is unknown. LOTUS-PN is a longitudinal/observational study conducted in the United States and Europe to investigate PN pathophysiology. Medical history, pr uritus (eDiary), sleep, quality of life, disease severity, blood, and skin biopsies were collected from baseline to 12 months.

Signs of skin fatigue result from the combined effects of many lifestyle factors, including emotional aspects, lack of rest or poor sleep. At the cellular level, ATP production and creatine kinase represent the main outputs of energy. Stressful conditions are also linked to an excessive secretion of cortisol, controlled by 11 β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (11β-HSD), whose expression is linked to stress status and skin aging. In the present study, both 2D and 3D in vitro models were developed to evaluate the effects of skin fatigue and their mitigation by a botanical extract.

Introduction/Objective : A person spends seven to eight hours a day sleeping. Many Studies have shown that the skin temperature decreases and the amount of sebum increases in the morning depending on the circadian rhythm. However, since these studies are awakened at the mid-measurement point, it is difficult to say that the condition of the skin after a deep sleep. There is also no study after sleeping according to age. Therefore in this study aim to investigate skin characteristics after sleeping according to age.

Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by chronic widespread pain, abnormal pain processing, sleep disturbances, fatigue, and often psychological distress with a global mean prevalence of 2.7%. The prevalence and characteristics of chronic itch in fibromyalgia has not been extensively studied, but a previous study determined chronic itch to be present in 3.3% patients. We administered a cross-sectional survey on chronic itch and pain to obtain information on fibromyalgia patients seen at the Rheumatology Clinic of Riddle Memorial Hospital from 2016 to 2018.
