AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review seeks to highlight the issue of when the best time to operate is given the neurocognitive consequences of pediatric OSA.Recent FindingsLearning and memory deficits persist after adenotonsillectomy in school age children with the disease at 9-month follow-up, suggesting short-term damage to the hippocampus in young children with OSA.SummaryLarger trials with younger children with pediatric OSA are currently ongoing to evaluate the impact of adenotonsillectomy on learning and memory recovery.

If any of you have flown with a 12-24 months old toddler, you will know that that can be the most difficult form of flying. While babies will sleep and be soothed by warm milk, and 2 year olds can be entertained by screens and movies, the group in between those ages, 12-24 month old toddlers, are a real challenge. They are curious and mobile with short attention spans. Screen time has no hold over them. They will push and kick their way out of baby carriers and cry and scream if restrained...

April is Stress Awareness Month. When I first read that in a local newspaper, my response was “Really? As if we’re not all very well-aware that we are stressed — sometimes to the max. Do we really need a month to focus on it? Then I read what it’s actually about: April as Stress Awareness Month was initiated by the Health Resource Network in 1992 to encourage health organizations to develop and distribute educational materials and hold public events about stress. Okay. That makes sense. But as I looked at internet articles on stress, most of them stress (pun) things one can do about stress. Look and...

Abstract Background: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common disease. It can cause many serious complications. OSA may increase the risk of hypertension. However, the exact mechanism of OSA causing hypertension is not fully understood. YKL-40/chitinase-3-like protein-1 plays an important role in vascular injury, repair, and generation. We sought to explore the role of YKL-40 in endothelial dysfunction and hypertension in OSA patients. Methods: All subjects were examined by polysomnography (PSG) and the expression of YKL-40 in the plasm of the subjects was measured by luminex. Carotid intima-media thickness ...

CONCLUSIONS SD decreases learning and memory through damage to the hippocampus. Higher concentrations of orexin-A had a major negative effect on hippocampal neurons via OX1R and PARP-1 through inhibition of the ERK1/2 signaling pathway. PMID: 31002658 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: VAN DEN Berg MJ, Signal TL, Gander PH Abstract Knowledge about cabin crew fatigue associated with ultra-long range (ULR) flights is still limited. Current ULR scheduling for cabin crew is therefore predominantly based on flight crew data. Cabin crews' views on fatigue, and their strategies for mitigating it, have seldom been sought. To better understand the causes and consequences of cabin crew fatigue, semi-structured focus group discussions were held. Thematic analysis was undertaken with data from 25 cabin crew. Participants indicated that the consequences of fatigue are twofold, affecting 1) cabin crew...
