IJERPH, Vol. 16, Pages 3081: Effectiveness of an Online CBT-I Intervention and a Face-to-Face Treatment for Shift Work Sleep Disorder: A Comparison of Sleep Diary Data International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health doi: 10.3390/ijerph16173081 Authors: Lukas Peter Richard Reindl Sigrid Zauter Thomas Hillemacher Kneginja Richter In western societies, about one in six employees works in shifts. Shiftwork is associated with a number of poor somatic and psychological health outcomes, especially sleep issues. Higher rates of absenteeism and accidents in the workplace are possible consequences. Still, prevention programs and treatment options that are specifically tailored to shift-workers’ needs are rare. We devised a 4-week online cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) intervention (n = 21) and compared sleep outcomes to a face-to-face outpatient treatment for shift-workers (n = 12) using a sleep diary and the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS). In the online sample, measures also included the World Health Organization wellbeing questionnaire (WHO-5) and the Insomnia Severity Index (ISI). In the outpatient sample, the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II), the Montgomery–Åsberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS), and the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) were administered. Results showed significant improvements in sleep efficiency by 7.2% in the online sample and 7.7% in the outpatient sample. However, no signi...

Objective: To determine the relationships between self-reported sleep profile and cortical amyloid load in elderly subjects without dementia.Methods: This cross-sectional study included 143 community-dwelling participants aged ≥70 years (median: 73 years [70–85]; 87 females) with spontaneous memory complaints but dementia-free. Sociodemographic characteristics, health status, neuropsychological tests, sleep, and 18F-florbetapir (amyloid) PET data were collected. The clinical sleep interview evaluated nighttime sleep duration, but also daytime sleep duration, presence of naps, and restless leg syndrome (RLS) at tim...

This study was designed to examine the association between sleep problems and different categories of OAD amongst US adults.MethodsWe conducted an observational, cross-sectional study using a nationally representative sample of the US civilian non-institutionalized population from 2007 to 2008 National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey (NHANES). A total of 3204 study participants aged ≥35 years were stratified into four groups, using a self-reported history of asthma and data from spirometry: asthma-COPD overlap (ACO) (n = 70, 2.2%), asthma (n = 168, 5.2%), chronic obstructive pu...

AO Adetoye, OI Aaron, EA Orimolade, KA P AdetifaNigerian Journal of Clinical Practice 2019 22(9):1301-1303 Neuropathic pain responds poorly to common analgesics that effectively control nociceptive pain because its pathophysiology is different and it is usually associated with co-morbidities such as sleep disturbance, depression and anxiety. Patients with this chronic pain are sometimes left with neurolysis as the last resort. A 65-year-old male multiply-injured retiree presented with disabling pain following traumatic brachial plexus injury sustained from road traffic accident 5 years earlier. Other injuries resolved wit...

In this study, we used structural equation modeling to investigate the interplay among Intolerance of Uncertainty (IU), Anxiety Sensitivity (AS), and sleep problems. Three hundred undergraduate students completed the Intolerance of Uncertainty Scale, the Intolerance of Uncertainty Inventory, the Anxiety Sensitivity Index, the Beck Depression Inventory, the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory, the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index and the Insomnia Severity Index. 68% and 40% of the students reported poor sleep quality or sub-threshold insomnia problems, respectively. Depression and anxiety levels were above the cut-off for about one...

Conclusions: Insomnia severity independently predicted memory function in patients with very complex chronic pain, even after controlling for other factors known to impair cognitive function. Insomnia may possibly explain some of the cognitive impairments related to chronic pain; thus, screening for, and treating, sleep disturbances may be a central aspect of chronic pain rehabilitation.

Abstract Objective/Background: Appalachian women are disproportionately affected by insufficient sleep but live in a healthcare shortage area with prevalent prescription drug abuse. A self-administered, non-pharmacologic intervention such as Internet-based cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) may be ideal in this population, but psycho-social characteristics (e.g., high depression rates) and cultural norms (e.g., suspicion of technology) necessitate a pilot study. We evaluated the effectiveness of Sleep Healthy Using the Internet (SHUTi) on insomnia severity, sleep quality, perceived stress, depressio...

Conclusions. EDS significantly predicted depression among college freshmen. Using a computer for a long time and less sleep duration during non-holidays contributed to EDS of college freshmen. Youths who experience EDS are recommended to seek assessment for depression symptoms and sleep-deprived behaviors, thus allowing physicians to offer appropriate screening and treatment.

rno R Abstract While evidence-based interventions can help the substantial number of veterans diagnosed with comorbid PTSD and depression, an emerging literature has identified sleep disturbances as predictors of treatment nonresponse. More specifically, predicting effects of residual insomnia and nightmares on postintervention PTSD and depressive symptoms among veterans with comorbid PTSD and depression has remained unclear. The present study used data from a clinical trial of Behavioral Activation and Therapeutic Exposure (BA-TE), a combined approach to address comorbid PTSD and depression, administered to veter...
