Publication date: January 2019Source: Epilepsy &Behavior, Volume 90Author(s): Sang-Ahm Lee, Young-Joo No, Kwang-Deog Jo, Jee-Hyun Kwon, Jeong Yeon Kim, Dong-Jin ShinAbstractObjectivesWe determined factors contributing to excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) in Korean adults with epilepsy (AWE).MethodsA total of 147 AWE who had been treated for> 1 year were included. Daytime sleepiness was assessed using the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS). Subjective sleep disturbances were assessed with the Sleep Apnea of Sleep Disorder Questionnaire (SA-SDQ) and questionnaires about insomnia and restless legs syndrome (RLS). The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS) was also used. An ESS score> 10 was considered indicative of EDS. Multivariate logistic regression analyses using the backward elimination method were performed for variables with a p

DISCUSSION:  In nearly 60 % of obstructive apnea events we found snoring during apnea-terminating hyperpnoea. LEOSound is a good diagnostic tool to monitor snoring. It is necessary to clarify why only 60 % of all obstructive events/hyperpnoea develop snoring. From a pathophysiological point of view opening of collapsed upper airway should lead in a very high percentage to turbulences in airstream and committed snoring.
