Relations Between Hyoid-Related Cephalometric Measurements and Severity of Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Conclusion: The mentum-hyoid distance of patients with severe OSA was longer compared to the other OSA groups. These patients might have more benefit from the surgeries that have an impact on the position of the hyoid bone compared to other patients with OSA.

Obstructive sleep apnea is a common condition, caused primarily by narrowing of the nasal and pharyngeal airway, leading to partial or complete airway collapse during sleep. Treatment with positive airway pressure (PAP) is considered first-line therapy, due to an efficacy rate of approximately 95%, yet long-term compliance with PAP is less than 40%. The efficacy of a sleep oral appliance is lower than PAP, yet it may have similar effectiveness. A sleep oral appliance is a reasonable second-line therapy for patients who refuse or fail PAP and may be reasonable first-line therapy.

AbstractObstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a common pediatric disorder characterized by recurrent events of partial or complete upper airway obstruction during sleep which result in abnormal ventilation and sleep pattern. OSAS in children is associated with neurobehavioral deficits and cardiovascular morbidity which highlights the need for prompt recognition, diagnosis, and treatment. The purpose of this state-of-the-art review is to provide an update on the evaluation and management of children with OSAS with emphasis on children with complex medical comorbidities and those with residual OSAS following first-line ...

Conclusions Low-dose intrathecal morphine, in conjunction with multimodal analgesia, was not reliably associated with postoperative pulmonary complications in patients with obstructive sleep apnea undergoing joint arthroplasty.Editor ’s PerspectiveWhat We Already Know about This TopicIntrathecal morphine is commonly and effectively used for analgesia after joint arthroplasty, but has been associated with postoperative pulmonary complications such as delayed respiratory depressionPatients with obstructive sleep apnea may be at higher risk of these complications, especially if intrathecal morphine is used for analgesia...

Authors: Wang TY, Tsai MH, Ni YL, Lin TY, Huang SY, Lo YL Abstract The aim of this study was to develop a simplified screening questionnaire to detect the existence of severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients to reduce mortality and hospitalization rates. Seventy-seven stable Asian COPD patients aged 69.2 ± 11.5 years were retrospectively analyzed into the development group. The simplified screening questionnaire was developed from factors identified from sleep surveys and demographic data to predict severe OSA. Receiver operating char...

Abstract CME: Obstructive Sleep Apnea: A Common Disease Abstract. Obstructive sleep apnea is a common sleep related breathing disorder with a collapse of the upper respiratory tract, leading to repetitive oxygen desaturations and 'micro arousals'. If the physiological sleep architecture is impaired, patients are at risk for an increased daytime sleepiness and an increased blood pressure. Main risk factors are central obesity, age, male sex, (and snoring). By means of weight loss, alcohol restriction, and continuous nocturnal positive pressure ventilation (CPAP), the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome can be treated,...

Sleep-disordered breathing symptoms may recur in some children after successful adenoidectomy. A potential etiology that warrants consideration is torus tubarius hypertrophy (TTH) as well as residual or recurrent adenoid hypertrophy. Here, we report our experience and the treatment outcomes with microscopic coblator-assisted partial resection of TTH. Seven children who had undergone coblator-assisted partial resection of TTH under microscopy from April 2000 through January 2017 were retrospectively reviewed. The patient age at the time of initial adenotonsillectomy and the interval between the first operation and partial ...

Authors: Dzięciołowska-Baran E, Gawlikowska-Sroka A, Szczurowski J Abstract Polysomnography, a gold standard for the diagnosis of sleep-disordered breathing, is a complex investigation requiring access to the sleep laboratory. Thus, sleep-disordered breathing could be underdiagnosed. The aim of this paper was to investigate the feasibility and effectiveness of self-performed investigation of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in the home setting, using a portable device, and to assess the comfort and simplicity of the procedure from the patient's perspective. The study included 68 middle-aged patients (21 women and 47...

C, Alonso-Fernández A, Barceló A Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Available evidence suggests a familial basis for OSA. The aim of the present study was to assess the potential influences of parental OSA in predicting the diagnosis and severity of OSA in snoring children. METHODS: Observational study, we prospectively enrolled 84 children and their parents. A complete nocturnal polysomnography was performed. Children were categorized into 3 severity groups according to the apnea-hypopnea index (AHI
