Marijuana affect your sleep, according to experts

Deidre Conroy, a psychiatric professor from the University of Michigan, warns marijuana can help people fall and stay asleep, but most will then struggle to sleep without it.

Orthognathic surgery is routinely performed to correct dento-facial deformities and to improve the function and aesthetics of patients. Maxillo-mandibular advancement is also being used to treat patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. The long-term success of these treatments depends on the skeletal stability, which remains a huge challenge despite the best surgical effort and advances in rigid internal fixation. Such challenge is greater in large mandibular advancements.

There is a paucity of information on the long term subjective effect of maxillomandibular advancement (MMA) on obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of MMA on long term patient perceived quality of life (QOL) in OSA.

Distinct comorbidity profiles have not been well defined for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients treated with maxillomandibular advancement (MMA) compared to those managed medically. Surgical OSA patients commonly have contributing anatomic findings such as mandibular retrognathia, constricted posterior airway space, and increased upper airway length (1). Body mass index (BMI) may be less of a factor in the development of OSA in patients that undergo MMA. It was therefore hypothesized that surgical patients have fewer medical comorbidities compared to nonsurgical OSA patients.

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.

This article reviews the neurobehavioral deficits resulting from sleep loss in adults, various countermeasures to mitigate these effects, and biomarkers to identify individual differences in neurobehavioral responses.Recent FindingsTotal sleep deprivation and chronic sleep restriction increase the homeostatic sleep drive and diminish waking neurobehavioral functioning, producing deficits in attention, memory and cognitive speed, increases in sleepiness and fatigue, and unstable wakefulness. Recovery sleep, extension of sleep, and use of caffeine and/or naps are all effective countermeasures to mitigate these responses. Can...

Part of the definition of pain is that it is “a sensory and emotional experience” – in other words, emotions of the negative kind are integral to the experience of pain. Is it any wonder that poets and authors have written so eloquently about the anguish of unrelieved pain? As I write this, I’ve been pondering the way “psychosocial” has been used when discussing pain, as if those factors aren’t experienced by “normal” people, as if the way we feel about pain and the way people who struggle with their pain feel are two entirely different things. Chris Eccleston, someone ...
