Conclusions: This study provides evidence that depressive symptoms are prevalent among outpatients of general hospitals. Moreover, younger age, alcohol consumption and sleep disturbance may potentially be useful for targeted screening and prevention for outpatients with depression seen in general hospitals.KeypointsThe prevalence of self-reported depressive symptoms is common in outpatients in clinical settings.Younger age, current alcohol drinking and sleep disturbance are the associated risk factors for depression in outpatient population.Alcohol prevention and sleep quality improvement need to be incorporated into strat...

Parkinson's disease is characterized by the aggregation and spread of misfolded α-synuclein throughout the brain, though, as for all neurodegenerative conditions, there are many layers of cause and effect, and chronic inflammation and cellular dysfunction play noted roles as well. There has been some debate in recent years over whether the α-synuclein aggregation of Parkinson's disease begins in the gut or the brain, with evidence presented for both sides. The authors of this open access paper suggest that both are the case, and Parkinson's can be divided into two subtypes depending on the origin of α-syn...

A new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) cross-sectional  studyusing diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) has found that young children who spend more than an hour a day in front of a screen have more disorganized and underdeveloped white matter than children with lower screen time quotas. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends an hour of daily screen time, and warns that children who spend more than two hours in front of a screen are at risk for a variety of developmental delays, such as impaired cognition, language delay, poor sleep, and decreased parent-child engagement. To understand the repercussio...

Conclusions:The differential results of heritability and familial aggregation of OSA in normal weight and overweight subgroups substantiated the recommendation of separating childhood OSA into normal weight and overweight subtypes. In the overweight subgroup, there may be obesity-independent components involved in the genetic variance of OAHI, although a significant proportion of the genetic variance is shared with obesity.Citation:Au CT, Zhang J, Cheung JYF, Chan KCC, Wing YK, Li AM. Familial aggregation and heritability of obstructive sleep apnea using children probands.J Clin Sleep Med. 2019;15(11):1561–1570.

Conclusions:Our study suggests that patients with hypertension usingα1-adrenergic antagonists have a higher risk of sleep apnea. Routine sleep apnea screening would be beneficial for patients with hypertension who takeα1-adrenergic antagonists.Citation:Su P-L, Lin W-K, Lin C-Y, Lin S-H.

Conclusions:OSA did not develop or worsen following primary palatoplasty. However, the oAHI increased by 5 or more events/h in approximately 20% of study participants. The presence of a syndrome was the only factor predictive of worsening OSA after palatoplasty. These findings suggest that palatoplasty does not worsen or cause OSA in most patients, and that nonsyndromic children are at low risk for the development or worsening of OSA.Citation:Bergeron M, Cohen AP, Maby A, Babiker HE, Pan BS, Ishman SL. The effect of cleft palate repair on polysomnography results.J Clin Sleep Med. 2019;15(11):1581–1586.
