ConclusionYoung obese children should be assessed for OSA. A history of snoring and daytime sleepiness may be useful indicators to facilitate triage for a PSG, especially in resource-limited settings.

An 81-year old female with multiple medical comorbidities was referred for evaluation of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). History was significant for loud snoring, which was worse lying on the back, snort arousals and witnessed apnea. She had 3-4 awakenings due to nocturia, felt unrefreshed in the morning, endorsed significant daytime sleepiness, and took an hour-long daytime nap three times a week. Pertinent findings on physical examination were a body mass index of 18 kg/m2 (weight 48 kg), narrow nasal passages, Friedman palatal position class IV, and a slightly retrognathic lower jaw.

A unique track at this year’s Health 2.0 Fall Conference is a SleepTech Summit focusing on innovations that enhance or improve a person’s ability to achieve a quicker, longer, and more refreshing sleep. As part of the main exhibit hall, six sleep-related companies were demoing their devices and technologies, and Medgadget had a chance to hold short interviews with each one. In addition to these six technology companies, Sleep-Geek was also in attendance. Sleep-Geek is a website and online community founded in 2010 with a mission to serve the mattress industry by connecting members with ideas that serve their pr...

A 14-year-old previously healthy adolescent male patient presented at Rady Children's Hospital (San Diego, CA, USA) in July, 2016, with a history of worsening snoring, recurrent nocturnal awakenings, and daytime somnolence over an 8-month period. Notably, the patient was not overweight or obese; by contrast, he had experienced a weight loss of 7 kg during the same time period. He did not complain of nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, dysphagia, or anorexia. Physical examination revealed enlarged tonsils (grade 4, with the left tonsil enlarged more than the right) with deviation of the uvula towards the right.

A 48-year-old man, with a history of systemic light-chain amyloidosis and heart failure, presented with snoring during sleep. He underwent sleep examination by portable monitor, which revealed sleep apnea syndrome (SAS) with an apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) 45.4/h. He started auto-adjusting continuous positive airway pressure (auto-CPAP) treatment. The memory stick of the CPAP machine showed that he used auto-CPAP for an average 5.5  h/night, and that the AHI was 48.3/h. The 4% oxygen desaturation index determined from pulse oximetry was 6.05/h during auto-CPAP treatment.

This study aimed to examine slow wave activity (SWA), a marker of homeostatic regulation, as a potential mechanism linking sleep disordered breathing (SDB) with executive dysfunction in children. METHODS: Executive function domains of working memory, spatial planning, information processing, and sustained attention were assessed using the Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery (CANTAB) in children (N = 40; 5-12 years) referred for clinical diagnosis of SDB. Polysomnography records of non-snoring, age-matched controls (N = 34) were retrospectively examined for comparison of SWA. Po...
