ResMed, Google ’ s Verily ink sleep-apnea-focused joint venture deal

ResMed (NYSE:RMD) and Google (NSDQ:GOOG) life sciences company Verily said today they inked a new joint venture deal aiming to develop software solutions to improve diagnosis, treatment and care for sleep apnea and other breathing related sleep disorders. The new US-based joint venture will use sleep apnea knowledge from San Diego-based ResMed and Verily’s data analytics technologies in its pursuits, the companies said, and will operate as a separate venture from both ResMed and Verily. “The vast majority of people with sleep apnea don’t realize they have it, and therefore don’t seek accessible, effective treatment to mitigate its effects and long-term health risks. The combined industry expertise, scalable infrastructure, and data analytics capabilities of ResMed and Verily can unlock meaningful ways to identify these individuals and support their journey to improved sleep, health and quality of life,” ResMed chief medical officer Dr. Carlos Nunez said in a prepared statement. “Approaching a widespread health problem like sleep apnea through collecting, organizing and activating health data is central to Verily’s mission. By better identifying at-risk individuals as well as generating real-world evidence regarding the value and effectiveness of treatment, this collaboration has the potential to improve outcomes for millions of people living with sleep apnea, and potentially other related conditions,” Verily ...

ArnaudBackgroundChronic intermittent hypoxia (IH) is the major feature of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSA), well known to induce cardiac remodeling and contractile dysfunction as well as systemic insulin resistance. Currently, no studies have investigated the impact of IH on cardiac insulin signaling. Thus, we aimed to highlight the effects of chronic IH in both lean and obese mice on:– cardiac insulin signaling;– cardiac...

CONCLUSIONS In our study, a significant relationship was found between the Warrick score and the OSA severity parameters, as determined by polysomnography. Polysomnographic examinations might be useful, especially in patients with a Warrick score greater than 15, to avoid possible complications. PMID: 30894506 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractPrevious epidemiological investigations have evaluated the association between gout, serum uric acid levels, and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), but with inconsistent results. We conducted this meta-analysis aiming at providing clear evidence about whether OSAS patients have higher serum uric acid levels and more susceptible to gout. Relevant studies were identified via electronic databases from inception to December 17, 2018. Study selection was conducted according to predesigned eligibility criteria, and two authors independently extracted data from included studies. The hazard ratio (HR) and weighted me...

This article is part of an ongoing series of informative Medicare guest posts written by MedicareFAQ.  - Carol Saving month each month on a low premium plan can be great until serious health issues arise so it's important to know this: Medicare Advantage plans are seductive; there is little to no premium and most plans include ancillary benefits. It makes sense that beneficiaries would choose to enroll in a Medicare Part C option.      However, with a $0 premium on many plans across the nation, beneficiaries have asked: "What's the catch"?   Here's the catch: The out of pocket ...

Abstract Sleep and arousal from sleep are associated with profound changes in cardiovascular and respiratory functions. Fluctuations of arterial blood pressure (ABP), heart rate (HR), and respiration occur both during non-rapid eye movement (NREM) and REM sleep and during transitions between sleep and behavioral arousal. These changes reflect complex, state-dependent interactions among several neuronal groups in the hypothalamus and brainstem. These neurons utilize the excitatory amino-acid L-glutamate or the inhibitory amino acid γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and are modulated in a state-dependent manner by in...

Abstract Cardiovascular disease (CVD) represents the first cause of death globally. The nighttime is generally a period of relative protection from CVD events such as myocardial infarction, sudden cardiac death, and stroke, at least compared to the early morning period. The nighttime also generally entails lower values of arterial blood pressure (ABP) and heart rate (HR) and higher cardiac parasympathetic modulation. These day-night cardiovascular rhythms are ultimately driven by circadian molecular oscillators in the hypothalamic suprachiasmatic nucleus and in peripheral cells, including those in the heart, blood...
