Introduction: Snoring and nocturnal gastroesophageal reflux (nGER) are each associated with respiratory symptoms, but their effect combined is not known. We aimed to study the association of lung function and respiratory symptoms with snoring and nGER.Methods: We used data from the European Community Respiratory Health Survey (ECRHS) III, a cross-sectional multi-centre general population study comprising 5715 participants. Post-bronchodilator spirometry was performed, and information on respiratory, sleep and nGER symptoms was collected. Habitual snoring was defined as reporting of snoring 'loudly or disturbingly, frequent...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the association between the components of airway resistance and severity of obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS). METHODS: A total of 234 patients with snoring during sleep underwent full-night polysomnography in our center between January, 2015 and September, 2017. According to the apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) scores, the patients were divided into non-OSAHS group (AHI scores 30). The pulmonary function and respiratory resistance of the patients were assessed using spirometry and impulse oscillometry, respectively, and the correlation between the parameters of respi...

This study aims to (1) determine the prevalence of OSA among symptomatic subjects with SSS and (2) compare clinical features of OSA between patients with and without SSS.Methods: Subjects (n=144) referred to the sleep unit (Pneumology Department - La Rabta University Hospital - Tunis) with clinical suspicion of OSA were included. All patients had a physical exanimation, a spirometry and a nocturnal polygraphy. The prevalence of OSA in subjects with and without SSS was calculated. The study population was then divided into two groups: G1 (OSA with SSS) and G2 (OSA without SSS). The 2 groups were compared according to age, s...

CONCLUSIONS: Patients with the sawtooth sign have greater odds of having a diagnosis of OSA compared with those without the sign. If prospectively evaluated, as a result of improved identification, we hypothesize that the sawtooth sign may show an even stronger association with OSA. This relatively common finding, which adds no cost to routine spirometry, may serve as an indicator for OSA workup for some individuals not already identified as having OSA.

Authors: Pıhtılı A, Bingol Z, Durmuş H, Parman Y, Kıyan E Abstract We herein report a patient case with familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP) who presented with vocal cord paralysis (VCP). A 60-year-old man with FAP (Gly89Gln) presented with hoarseness and snoring for the previous two years. A chest X-ray demonstrated cardiomegaly and bilateral diaphragmatic elevation. The findings of a restrictive pattern on spirometry and daytime hypercapnia were consistent with respiratory muscle weakness related to neuropathy [forced expiratory volume (FEV1): 38%, forced vital capacity (FVC): 39%, FEV1/FVC: 77, partial...

The objective was to perform a systematic review in order to describe the relationship between asthma and sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) in children, especially regarding the impact of treatment and management. Methods: We performed an electronic search in MEDLINE, EMBASE, and LILACS database. Study inclusion criteria were the following: 1) studies that examined the relationship between asthma/wheezing and SDB/obstructive sleep apnea (OSA); and 2) studies conducted in children

Abstract Objectives: To examine the prevalence of self‐reported symptoms of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) in relation to asthma, respiratory symptoms, and pulmonary function. A secondary objective was to determine how sex impacted these relationships. Methods: A random sample of all adults aged 47‐48 and 71‐73 years living in Bergen, Norway, were invited. Participants (3506, 69%) underwent spirometry testing and completed a questionnaire on sleep, respiratory symptoms, and past medical history. OSA was defined by positive answers to questions on snoring, breathing cessations, and daytime sleepiness. Current asthma w...
