The association of hemocyte profile and obstructive sleep apnea
Journal of Clinical Laboratory Analysis, EarlyView.
ConclusionAdenotonsillectomy showed benefits for the treatment of OSA in syndromic craniosynostosis children, in terms of AHI and ODI. However, only ODI, but not AHI, reached statistical significance. Data were based on meta-analysis of retrospective reviews. Further studies that are conducted at multiple centers are needed to confirm the benefits of adenotonsillectomy for the treatment of OSA in syndromic craniosynostosis children.
(European Lung Foundation) A study of more than 19,000 people has found that women with obstructive sleep apnea are more likely to be diagnosed with cancer than men with the condition.
ConclusionsAbdominal obesity, rather than general obesity, appears to play a more important role in OSA.
ConclusionOvernight oximetry provides satisfactory diagnostic performance in detecting moderate and severe OSA; however, a normal or McGill 2 score does not rule out OSA and a PSG is required for diagnosis.
ConclusionsWe were able to develop an interactive estimation application to provide a population-based guidance for potential outcomes of LRYGB. This might be useful not only for health professionals but also for patients interested in learning potential outcomes in specific circumstances.
CONCLUSION: Overnight oximetry provides satisfactory diagnostic performance in detecting moderate and severe OSA; however, a normal or McGill 2 score does not rule out OSA and a PSG is required for diagnosis. PMID: 31104209 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a condition in which the soft tissues of the throat relax and narrow the airways during sleep, may raise the risk of developing heart problems after surgery, according toresearch published this week inJAMA. In OSA, breathing stops and starts multiple times during sleep, resulting in snoring, gasping for air, poor sleep quality, morning headaches, daytime fatigue, irritability, and difficulty concentrating.The study, led by Matthew T. V. Chan, Ph.D., M.B.B.S., of the Chinese University of Hong Kong included 1,218 patients aged 45 years or older who had abdominal, vascular, or major orthopedic ...
Authors: Zhou J, Huang X, Jiang X Abstract BACKGROUND Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is related to the serum carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) level, which is used as a marker of colorectal cancer. Obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (OSAS) has been recently reported to have cancer-promoting effects. The aim of our study was to observe the effect of OSAS on serum levels of CEA in patients with T2DM. MATERIAL AND METHODS We enrolled 401 T2DM patients in this study. There were 244 patients with OSAS and 157 patients without OSAS. RESULTS The CEA level in T2DM patients with OSAS was higher than that in those without OSAS (p
Conclusions Resuming PPV use after transsphenoidal surgery did not result in intracranial complications. However, delay in resuming PPV resulted in four patients requiring oxygen at home. We propose a preliminary PPV device management algorithm based on the size of the intraoperative CSF leak to facilitate future studies.

The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with hypertension on telomerase activity, visfatin and adipsine concentration in the blood and vascular endothelial function assessed by ultrasound measured flow-mediated dilatation of the brachial artery (FMD).
