Advances in the Diagnosis of Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Drug-Induced Sleep Endoscopy.

Advances in the Diagnosis of Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Drug-Induced Sleep Endoscopy. Adv Otorhinolaryngol. 2017;80:22-27 Authors: Revesloot MJL, Benoist L, van Maanen P, Kezirian EJ, de Vries N Abstract Drug-induced sleep endoscopy was introduced in 1991 and has recently evolved into a pivotal instrument for patients in whom obstructive sleep apnea surgery is considered. Here, we discuss the indications, contraindications, technique, anesthesia, scoring systems, validity, and insights of the literature. PMID: 28738362 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractPerioperative complications related to obstructive sleep apnea still occur despite the use of partial pressure end-tidal CO2\(\left( {{{\text{P}}_{{\text{ETC}}{{\text{O}}_2}}}} \right)\) and pulse oximetry. Airway obstruction can complicate propofol sedation and a novel monitor combining mandibular movement analysis with capnography may facilitate its detection. Patients scheduled for sleep endoscopy were recruited and monitored with standard monitoring,\({{\text{P}}_{{\text{ETC}}{{\text{O}}_2}}},\) and Jaw Activity (JAWAC) mandibular movement sensors. A post hoc analysis investigated airway obstruction prediction ...

AbdelgalelAbstractBackgroundThe aim of this study was to evaluate if the addition of dexmedetomidine to propofol could improve the success and reduce the complications during drug induced sleep endoscopy in obstructive sleep apnea patients.Patient and methodsFifty adult patients scheduled for drug induced sleep endoscopy were randomly allocated to one of two groups. Group P (25 patients) received propofol loading dose of 0.5 mg/kg over 3 min then continuous infusion in a dose of 25–75 mcg/kg/min. Group ...

Purpose of review Provide a practical update on drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) for anesthesia providers, which can also serve as a reference for those preparing to establish a DISE program. Recent findings New developments in surgical approaches to OSA and the growing global incidence of the condition have stimulated increased interest and demand for drug-induced sleep endoscopy. New techniques include transoral robotic surgery and hypoglossal nerve stimulation. Recent DISE literature has sought to address numerous debates including relevance of DISE findings to those during physiologic sleep and the most appropr...

Introduction: Drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) offers an unique evaluation of the upper airway pathology, that can lead to obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). In both fiberoptic bronchoscopy (FOB) and DISE, similar sedative agents are used. It is thought that the upper airways can be evaluated in terms of functional and anatomic pathology during the FOB procedure. The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between polysomnography scores and upper airway scores during routine FOB.Methods: Fifty patients who undergone FOB were included to the study. After the sedation protocol applied by an anesthesiolo...

Purpose of review The purpose of this article is to review complications and unplanned hospital admissions in patients presenting for ambulatory procedures requiring anesthesia care in the gastrointestinal endoscopy, bronchoscopy, and radiology suites. Recent findings The range of ambulatory diagnostic and therapeutic procedures being undertaken in the gastrointestinal endoscopy, bronchoscopy, and radiology suites is expanding rapidly. Recent observational studies in gastrointestinal endoscopy confirm low incidences of complications and unplanned admissions. Deep propofol-based sedation is associated with more complic...

Maxillomandibular advancement is an effective surgical treatment for medically refractory moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea. Different degrees and vectors of bony advancements increase upper airway dimensions as a result of their soft tissue attachments. Previous studies have analyzed clinical efficacy by demonstrating increased airway dimension on pre and post-operative imaging, sleep study results, and drug induced sleep endoscopy (DISE). These studies are limited to analyzing the effects of single movements.

Purpose of review: Recent advances in diagnostic testing for obstructive sleep apnea in children have refined the standard tests while identifying several new tools that hold promise to radically change how we diagnose sleep apnea. Recent findings: Studies have demonstrated that the polysomnogram may be modified to permit home assessment of sleep disturbed breathing in children to ensure more widespread access to the test. Alternately, questionnaires, nocturnal oximetry, and diagnostic urinary biomarkers have shown great promise as both sensitive and specific tools to diagnose sleep apnea in children as well as track the ...
