Long-term therapeutic efficacy of oral appliances in treatment of obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome.

Conclusion: OAs provided effective and safe long-term therapy for patients with OSAHS. Follow-up supervision is recommended since long-term alterations take place, although these appear to be minimal. PMID: 23270383 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: BaHammam AS, Almeneessier AS Abstract Previous studies have assessed the role of gender and menopause in Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). It is well known that menopause is a major risk factor for OSA. However, analogous studies on obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome (OHS) are limited. Recent studies have suggested that OHS is more prevalent in postmenopausal women. Moreover, women with OHS seem to have excess comorbidities, including hypothyroidism, hypertension, pulmonary hypertension, and diabetes mellitus, compared to men. In the present perspective, we discuss recent data on the prevalence and comorbiditie...

The European Commission has approved Sunosi, a Jazz Pharmaceuticals sleep disorder treatment. Sunosi was approved, in 75- and 150-milligram doses, to improve wakefulness and reduce excessive daytime sleepiness in adults with narcolepsy or obstructive sleep apnea who did not respond to primary sleep apnea therapies such as continuous positive airway pressure. Jazz Pharmaceuticals, which is based in Dublin, Ireland, has major operations in Philadelphia where the company has nearly 200 employees.…

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe prevalence of sleep-disordered breathing has greatly increased in the geriatric population.Recent FindingsThe pathophysiology of sleep-disordered breathing for this population varies from younger populations due to consequences of aging such as loss of neuromuscular tone, soft tissue hypertrophy, and tissue laxity. The importance of treating obstructive sleep apnea is obvious as it is linked to detrimental cardiovascular and cerebrovascular risks with additional effects on quality of life.SummaryTreatment of older patients is best met by evaluating their goals of treatment and meeting it with o...

This study applied network pharmacology to identify 94 active components in the six TCM liver-regulating herbs and 182 corresponding targets from several databases and comprehensive literature studies, as well as retrieved AF combined with OSAHS-related targets. Cytoscape software was adopted to construct the component-component target network and component-putative target-AF combined with OSAHS target network. Then, we obtained 38 putative therapeutic targets against AF combined with OSAHS. After the production of a putative therapeutic target interaction network, topological analysis was adopted to determine the core tar...

ConclusionsThe results suggest that stressors, especially noise, heat stress, and respirable dust, are related to the employees' indices of sleep disturbance independent of other potential workplace confounding factors. These results can highlight the importance of considering multiple psychosocial and environment work risk factors for implementing occupational health and ergonomics interventional programs to prevent sleep disturbances in the workforce.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewGiven the rising prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), we aimed to review the epidemiologic and pathophysiologic relationship of OSA, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease, and to summarize recent advances in the treatment of OSA.Recent FindingsOSA is associated with an elevated risk of hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Several pathophysiologic factors contribute to the relationship between OSA and vascular risk, including neurohormonal dysregulation, endothelial dysfunction, and inflammation. While CPAP reduces blood pressure, it has not been demonstrated to reduce cardiovascular ...
