In conclusion, both RH and RfH constitute challenges in clinical practice and should be addressed as distinct clinical entities by trained professionals who are capable to identify comorbidities and provide specific, diversified, and individualized treatment.

Conclusions:Position of hyoid bone and LPW thickness are anatomical markers of childhood OSA independent of obesity and tonsil size. Screening tools may include cephalometry and sonographic measurement of LPW to allow better delineation of OSA risk.Citation:Au CT, Chan KC, Liu KH, Chu WC, Wing YK, Li AM.

Conclusions:The most current AASM criteria for hypopnea identify a unique group of patients who are sleepy, but who are not at increased risk for cardiovascular disease. Though the different hypopnea definitions result in recategorization of OSA severity, severe disease whether defined by≥ 3% desaturation/arousals or≥ 4% desaturation remains predictive of cardiac arrhythmias.Commentary:A commentary on this article appears in this issue on page 1971.Citation:Won CH, Qin L, Selim B, Yaggi HK. Varying hypopnea definitions affect obstructive sleep apnea severity classification and association with cardiovascular disease....

Study Objectives:We aimed to determine the association between short telomere length, sleep parameters, and sleep disorders in an adult general population sample.Methods:As part of the EPISONO cohort (São Paulo, Brazil), 925 individuals answered questionnaires, underwent a full-night polysomnography and clinical assessment, and had peripheral blood collected for DNA extraction. Insomnia was diagnosed based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th edition; and obstructive sleep apnea was defined according to apnea-hypopnea index. For the objective insomnia phenotype, we combined insomnia diag...

Study Objectives:Sleep apnea is associated with adverse health outcomes. Despite being an important comorbidity in obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart failure, and resistant hypertension, it is underdiagnosed in these patient groups. An inexpensive and readily accessible sleep apnea screening tool would help address this problem. We sought to compare three commonly used screening tools.Methods:We recruited 812 patients who had not previously been investigated for sleep apnea from our institution's diabetes (n = 512), obesity (n = 129), resistant hypertension (n = 74) and heart failure (n = 43) clinics. Patients completed three...

The diagnosis and effective treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in adults is an urgent health priority. It is the position of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) that only a medical provider can diagnose medical conditions such as OSA and primary snoring. Throughout this statement, the term“medical provider” refers to a licensed physician and any other health care professional who is licensed to practice medicine in accordance with state licensing laws and regulations. A home sleep apnea test (HSAT) is an alternative to polysomnography for the diagnosis of OSA in uncomplicated adults presenting...

We report two cases of catathrenia incidentally detected in patients with low to intermediate risk of obstructive sleep apnea, in which diagnostic polysomnography was recommended but denied by insurers. Events were automatically scored as central apneas, leading to diagnostic uncertainty. The key to identification of catathrenia in both patients was combination of audio review of events, pattern of expiratory air trapping, and mismatch between central apnea flow signal attenuation and increased sound noted on audio amplitude signal. Diagnostic polysomnography was ordered in both cases for confirmation of diagnosis, leading...
