Obstructive sleep apnea can affect your daily productivity

Wall-shaking snores, lapses in breathing, constant tossing and turning. What may seem like your everyday sleep problems could be pointing towards a more serious condition – a condition that affects more than sleep, but the very ability to function as an effective employee throughout the already demanding work week. Up to a third of Americans live with a sleep disorder called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a disorder many aren’t aware they’re experiencing due t o its subtle symptoms. OSA occurs…

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.

AbstractPurposeObstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) is a common breathing disorder during sleep characterized by multiple disease roots, including disorders of complement and glycometabolism. And the main purpose of the present study is to make clear the effect of complement C3 on glucose metabolism abnormalities in patients with OSAHS.MethodsThis was a cross-sectional study. Two hundred six patients, mean age 44.58  ± 11.84 years and 26 female patients (26/206), had been suspected with OSAHS and underwent overnight polysomnography. The assessment of complement levels included complement ...

Authors: Ierardo G, Luzzi V, Polimeni A Abstract The Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS) is a breathing disorder characterized by repeated episodes of apnea/hypopnea occurring during sleep and caused by the obstruction of the upper airway. As OSAS can have a significant impact on quality of life, an early diagnosis and a multi-specialized recognition become important. Therapeutic proposals include the Mandibular Advancement Devices (MADs), intraoral devices that induce a mandibular advancement during the night to eliminate snoring and apnea. Italian guidelines on dental aspects of OSAS in adults and children fo...

ouml;se Sleep physiology and sleep hygiene play significant roles in maintaining the daily lives of individuals given that sleep is an important physiological need to protect the functions of the human brain. Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) is an important disease that disturbs this need. Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS) are clinical conditions that affect all body organs and systems that intermittently, repeatedly, with at least 10 s or more breathing stops that decrease throughout the night and disturb sleep integrity. The aim of this study was to produce a new device for the treatment of patients...
