By MATTHEW HOLT Another one of my favorites, although this one is much more recent than those published so far–dating back to only March 2015. It was the written version of a talk I gave in September 2014 following the birth of my son Aero on August 26, 2014. So if we are discussing birthdays (and re-posting classics as, yes, it’s still THCB’s 15th birthday week!) we might as well have one that is literally about the confluence of a birthday and the state of health IT, health business, care for the underserved and much more! Today is the kick-off of the vendor-fest that is HIMSS. Late last week on TH...

CONCLUSIONS: Dental appliances may be considered an appropriate second-choice option to treat severe OSA in patients who are noncompliant with CPAP. This study helps physicians identify patients with extremely severe OSA who are suitable for dental appliance treatment. Well-designed large-scale studies are needed to reach definitive conclusions.

ConclusionsNoise tends to be positively associated with waist circumference but not BMI in adults, but current evidence remains limited. Future studies should assess the impact of noise on adiposity in alternative settings and across population subgroups and geographic areas, examine different sources of noise, and elucidate the biomedical and psychosocial pathways linking noise to adiposity.

Diagnostic tech developer Masimo (NSDQ:MASI) and rival Dominion have settled a suit over blood monitoring patents, according to recently released court documents. The two companies said they reached a settlement deal over a suit brought against Masimo by Dominion claiming it infringed on patents related to noninvasive blood monitoring technology. The agreement does not include payments from either company, and leaves both sides to pay for their own legal costs, according to court documents. The settlement deal was signed by US District Judge Beth Freeman on Tuesday. Earlier this week, Masimo released results from a st...

Authors: Fehr BS, Katz WF, Van Enkevort EA, Khawaja IS Abstract Objective: To examine the correlations between obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and psychiatric disorders such as major depressive disorder (MDD), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or bipolar disorder (BD) and whether comorbid psychiatric diagnosis increases the risk of OSA. Methods: This retrospective chart review study included all patients (N = 413) seen within a randomly selected 4-month period (August 2014 to November 2014) in a Veterans Administration outpatient psychiatry clinic. Patients were screened for symptoms of OSA with the STOP-BANG...

Publication date: Available online 16 August 2018Source: Neuroscience ResearchAuthor(s): Matthieu Hein, Jean-Pol Lanquart, Gwénolé Loas, Philippe Hubain, Paul LinkowskiAbstractSleep plays an important role in cognitive functioning. However, few studies have investigated the sleep network organization. The aim of our study was to empirically investigate the presence and the stability with age of a small-world network organization during REM and slow-wave sleep using the effective connectivity measured by the Granger causality. Polysomnographic data from 30 healthy men recruited prospectively were analysed. To ...
