Ocular surface assessment and morphological alterations in meibomian glands with meibography in obstructive sleep apnea Syndrome.

Ocular surface assessment and morphological alterations in meibomian glands with meibography in obstructive sleep apnea Syndrome. Ocul Surf. 2019 Jun 18;: Authors: Karaca I, Yagci A, Palamar M, Tasbakan MS, Basoglu OK Abstract PURPOSE: To evaluate ocular surface and Meibomian glands morphology of patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Based on polysomnography, 36 eyes of 36 patients with severe OSAS (Group 1, apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) ≥30/h) and 24 eyes of 24 patients with primary snoring or mild OSAS (Group 2, AHI

Conclusions: The "Firefly" app based sensing technology offers the potential to significantly lower the barrier of entry to OSA screening, as no hardware (other than the user's personal smartphone) is required. Additionally, multi-night analysis is possible in the home environment, without requiring the wearing of a portable PSG or other home sleep test (HST). PMID: 32944361 [PubMed]

Purpose: The aim of this study was to explore the clinical characteristics of different sleep perception types of obstructive sleep apnea–hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) patients and to analyze the correlation between sleep perception and polysomnography (PSG) indicators in OSAHS patients.Methods: We retrospectively analyzed 355 patients diagnosed with OSAHS by PSG at the Sleep Medicine Center of Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University. Patients saw a doctor due to snoring and daytime sleepiness from March 2017 to March 2018. We excluded the patients who are

CONCLUSION: Dynamic pain after tonsillectomy and uvulopalatopharyngoplasty could immediately be mitigated by local treatments upon sweet spots. Local treatments upon sweet spots were highly suggested to begin early post-operatively and be included in the take-home routines for patients receiving tonsillectomy and uvulopalatopharyngoplasty.

Authors: Maurer JT, Leitzbach S Abstract In Germany about one third of adults aged between 30 and 69 years suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Snoring, inspiratory flow limitations, hypopneas, and apneas occur, leading to disturbed sleep, reduced daytime performance, and increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Positive airway pressure therapy (PAP therapy) can be successfully administered in every OSA severity. However, other conservative treatments have to be considered for some patients, particularly in PAP failure or intolerance. The individual treatment concept is based on poly(somno)graph...

(Flinders University) A trial of a simple yet effective surgery has led Australian experts to promote it as an option to specialists around the world for managing difficult obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) cases. After rigorous evaluation of the surgery, excellent outcomes were shown in sleep apnea patients who had been unable to use continuous positive pressure airway (CPAP) treatment, with patients achieved relief from snoring and disrupted sleep and experienced improved general health. according to a new report in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

Abstract BACKGROUND: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is often associated with multisystem damage. The gut is a pivotal organ that initiates the pathophysiological processes of multisystem diseases. Intermittent hypoxia resulting from OSA may impair the intestinal barrier prior to the induction of systemic inflammation. We hypothesize that the intestinal barrier markers D-lactic acid (D-LA) and intestinal fatty acid-binding protein (I-FABP) levels would be higher in patients with OSA. METHODS: Consecutive snoring and nonsnoring adults were included in this study and were grouped based on their apnea-hypopnea ind...

If your bed partner complains about your loud snoring, it might be a disruptive nuisance — or something more serious. High-volume snoring punctuated by snorts, gasps, and brief pauses in breathing is the hallmark of obstructive sleep apnea. Although this condition occurs most often in men over 40 who are overweight or obese, it can affect people of all ages and sizes. The resulting daytime sleepiness — a direct result of not getting enough high-quality sleep — can leave people moody and forgetful. Even more worrisome: car accidents are two to three times more common in people with sleep apnea. Sleep apnea...

As one of the most common sleep-related respiratory disorders, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is characterized by excessive snoring, repetitive apnea, arousal, sleep fragmentation, and intermittent nocturnal hypoxemia. Focused on the resting-state brain imaging techniques, we reviewed the OSA-related resting-state electroencephalogram and resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (rsfMRI) studies. Compared with the healthy control group, patients with OSA presented increased frontal and central δ/θ powers during resting-state wakefulness, and their slow-wave activity showed a positive correlation with ...
