UnnikrishnanAbstractThe study was designed to gauge association between occult sleep-related breathing disturbances and sleep architecture changes on cognitive trajectories in subjects with amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) relative to cognitively normal healthy controls, phenotyped by neuroimaging. Subjects with aMCI and normal cognition were prospectively...

CONCLUSIONS: As with all cases of severe asthma, the assessment of comorbidities must be systematic in the presence of an occupational asthma which persists after the cessation of the occupational exposure. The management of these comorbidities can lead to an improvement in asthma control and severity. PMID: 31204233 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractUrolithiasis is a common urologic problem among adults worldwide. It is interesting that urinary stones tend to recur on the same side and the pathophysiology of unilateral stone formation is not clearly understood. Researchers found that sleep posture could alter renal perfusion, and subsequent vascular injury may lead to urolithiasis formation. The aim of this study is to retrospectively evaluate the correlations between the specific sleep postures recorded in polysomnography (PSG) and the stone laterality in unilateral urinary stone formers with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). We retrospectively reviewed patients...

CONCLUSIONS: Even though there are very few cases in scientific literature of a tumor with these characteristics in infants, IMT must be present as a differential diagnosis of intranasal masses. The role of the pathologist is essential to reach the definitive diagnosis and the performance of an early surgical treatment decreases aesthetic consequences in this pathology.

Authors: Liu Y, Gao L, Lv W, Lın L, Wang Y, Fıang F, Feng F Abstract Background/aim: To prepare a porcine model of obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) and observe the pathological and hemodynamic changes in the common carotid artery. Materials and methods: Twelve male miniature pigs were randomly divided into the model and control group (n = 6). Pigs in the model group were kept in an air-flow negative pressure chamber at 0.96 ± 0.01 kPa, and the air oxygen content, temperature, and humidity were kept at normal culture conditions in both groups. After pigs in the model group presented sym...

CONCLUSION: The objective severity of OSA and the associated subjective daytime sleepiness was reduced in both groups. There was no difference in terms of clinical outcome or compliance between the gradual or intensive SPT therapy in POSA patients during the observation period. Both training modalities are highly successful and well tolerated. PMID: 31190192 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this study, an intermittent hypoxic cell model was established to detect the effects of hypoxia on the proliferation and apoptosis of Genioglossus muscle satellite cells (GG MuSCs), and the damage to the mitochondrial structure and function was assessed by transmission electron microscopy and mitochondrial membrane potential. Then, miR-17-5p was upregulated and downregulated by miRNA mimics and inhibitors, respectively, and bioinformatics analysis was used to predict and validate the target genes of miR-17-5p. The results showed that the hypoxic environment affected the proliferation of GG MuSCs and mitochondrial membra...

Study Objectives:Studies of older and less active patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) have reported decreased exercise capacity as measured by peak oxygen uptake (VO2 max) during cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET). We looked to determine whether VO2 max was decreased in younger patients with OSA who regularly exercise as would be encountered in the military.Methods:We evaluated military personnel who had undergone pulmonary function testing (PFT), CPET, and polysomnography (PSG) as part of the larger STAMPEDE III study for comprehensive evaluation of exertional dyspnea. For analysis, patients were classified i...

Conclusions:An adjustment for continuous positive airway treatment dose by season is not warranted. Protection for air pollutant-vulnerable groups should be provided. The exact mechanism of the associations between apnea-hypopnea index and air conditions only in non-rapid eye movement sleep must be clarified.Citation:Cheng WJ, Liang SJ, Huang CS, Lin CL, Pien LC, Hang LW. Air pollutants are associated with obstructive sleep apnea severity in non-rapid eye movement sleep.J Clin Sleep Med. 2019;15(6):831–837.
