According to this study: An interprofessional intervention combining nursing education and empowerment to reduce sleep interruptions in hospitals led to fewer nighttime room entries and improved patient experience.The authors note that creating a sleep-friendly environment likely depends on the unit-based nurses championing this cause.

Conclusions: MBTs can be effective in treating insomnia and improving sleep quality for healthy individuals and clinical patients. More high-quality and well-controlled RCTs are needed to make a better conclusion in further study. PMID: 30894878 [PubMed]

Publication date: April 2019Source: Archives of Cardiovascular Diseases Supplements, Volume 11, Issue 2Author(s): C. Calissi, M. Pesse, M. Détrait, E. Belaidi-Corsat, C. 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: For both BMI obesity risk and WC obesity risk, we conclude that slow and fast ER were related to decreased and increased risks when adjusted for appropriate CFs, which differed by gender and the obesity type. PMID: 30896418 [PubMed - in process]

Using electrocorticogram (ECoG) analysis, we compared age-related dynamics of general neuronal activity and convulsive epileptiform responsiveness induced by intracortical microinjections of 4-aminopyridine (4-AP) in control Wistar rats and those subjected to prenatal hypoxia (Hx; E14; 7% O2, 3 h). The studies were carried out in three age periods roughly corresponding to childhood (P20 –27), adolescence (P30–45), and adulthood (P90–120). It was found that in the process of postnatal development of the control rats, the peak of the ECoG power spectrum density (PSD) of the theta rhythm during wakefulness s...

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]

(American Physiological Society) A new article explores the pathophysiological factors that link sleep disturbances and Alzheimer's disease. Better understanding of this connection may lead to potential diagnostics and therapeutics for Alzheimer's disease, and other neurodegenerative diseases and dementia. The article is published ahead of print in the Journal of Neurophysiology (JNP).

Authors: Valdez J, Kim M, Rueschman M, Socrates V, Redline S, Sahoo SS Abstract Scientific reproducibility is critical for biomedical research as it enables us to advance science by building on previous results, helps ensure the success of increasingly expensive drug trials, and allows funding agencies to make informed decisions. However, there is a growing "crisis" of reproducibility as evidenced by a recent Nature journal survey of more than 1500 researchers that found that 70% of researchers were not able to replicate results from other research groups and more than 50% of researchers were not able rep...

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...
