Among the multiple comorbidities in HF, sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) is frequent and worsens the prognosis. Preliminary observational studies suggested that treatment of SDB could modify the prognosis of HF, and the issue has gained importance in recent years. The diagnosis of SDB is expe...

Objective/HypothesisTo investigate outcomes including efficacy, quality of life, and levels of inflammatory markers of a mandibular advancement device (MAD) for moderate‐to‐severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Study DesignCase‐control study. MethodsPatients with apnea‐hypopnea index (AHI) ≥ 15/hr who only accepted MAD therapy (study group) or who refused any treatment (control group) were recruited. At baseline and at 6 months, polysomnography, Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS), Functional Outcomes of Sleep Questionnaire (FOSQ), C‐reactive protein (CRP), interleukin 1β, interleukin 6, and tumo...

Authors: Ahmad M, Makati D, Akbar S Abstract Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a prevalent sleep disorder as is hypertension (HTN) in the 21st century with the rising incidence of obesity. Numerous studies have shown a strong association of OSA with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. There is overwhelming evidence supporting the relationship between OSA and hypertension (HTN). The pathophysiology of HTN in OSA is complex and dependent on various factors such as sympathetic tone, renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, endothelial dysfunction, and altered baroreceptor reflexes. The treatment of OSA is multifactori...

It significantly contributes to morbidity and mortality in all countries worldwide. Obstructive sleep apnea is one of the most common causes of daytime sleepiness. Typical risk factors for obstructive sleep apnea in the normal adult population are male gender, obesity (preferentially central obesity), and increased neck ...
