IJERPH, Vol. 16, Pages 3248: The Most Effective Amount of Forward Movement for Oral Appliances for Obstructive Sleep Apnea: A Systematic Review International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health doi: 10.3390/ijerph16183248 Authors: Yuki Sakamoto Akifumi Furuhashi Eri Komori Hiroyuki Ishiyama Daichi Hasebe Kazumichi Sato Hidemichi Yuasa This systematic review clarifies the amount of effective protrusion in mandibular advancement devices of oral appliances required for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The systematic review adhered to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis (PRISMA) guidelines. Review Manager 5 and GRADEpro were used to combine trials and analyze data. The present review included three studies. In mild to moderate OSA cases, measured using the apnea–hypopnea index (AHI), 50% protrusion was more effective than 75% protrusion. However, 75% protrusion was more effective for severe cases. Sleep stage, Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS), snoring index, and side effects significantly differed between the groups. Additionally, 75% protrusion was more effective (AHI: 0.38, 95% CI: −0.89 to 1.65, p = 0.56; sleep stage 3: −1.20, 95% CI: 9.54–7.14, p = 0.78; ESS: 1.07, 95% CI: −0.09 to 2.24, p = 0.07; snoring index: 0.09, 95% CI: 0.05–0.13, p < 0.05; side effects: RR: 1.89, 95% CI: 0.36–9.92, p = 0.45). As per the AHI, 75% protrusion was ...

Conclusions:Regarding patients with RS referred to the sleep medicine clinic, snoring and witnessed apneas were the most common presenting complaints. In addition to breathing abnormalities during wake, OSA was very common in our cohort. Further studies are needed to examine the pathogenesis of OSA in RS and relationships between disease genotype and respiratory abnormality phenotype.Citation:Sarber KM, Howard JJM, Dye TJ, Pascoe JE, Simakajornboon N.

Study Objectives:Our objectives were to determine in an obese population (body mass index> 35 kg/m2) the number of patients, after gastric bypass (GBP), who no longer met French Ministry of Health criteria for utilizing positive airway pressure (PAP), and the predictive factors of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) improvement.Methods:Between June 2012 and August 2014 we diagnosed OSA in 129 incident patients requiring PAP therapy before GBP. A postoperative sleep recording was undertaken for 44 of these patients after a weight loss of at least 10%.Results:Most of the patients showed severe OSA with a mean [standard deviatio...

AbstractSleep complaints are frequently reported by patients with temporomandibular disorders (TMD). This review aims to offer dental practitioners and allied specialties a basic understanding of sleep quality, measured it subjectively and objectively, and common sleep disturbances that are present in TMD patients. Guidance in identifying and managing patients with TMD and comorbid sleep related complaints will be provided as well. Dentists should be able to screen sleep disorders such as insomnia, sleep disordered breathing (apnea, snoring), or sleep bruxism, and to refer patients to the appropriate specialist when necess...

Leverant, Amishav Bresler, Boris PaskhoverAbstractPurposeThe Pillar Palatal Implant System is a minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. Prior studies have examined the effectiveness of this procedure, however no prior study has thoroughly evaluated its complications. We anticipate that this analysis will provide valuable insight into these procedures which can be used in patient education and post-operative follow-up.Materials and ...

AbstractOSA is a disease of modernisation. Though many modalities are available for its treatment from invasive to non-invasive; the role of lifestyle modification can never be underrated. Lifestyle modification normally includes walk; diet with less fat; abstinence from alcohol and smoking along with regularising of sleep schedule. However the role of calorie deficit diet along with strength training in OSA has not been extensively researched till date. The present study aimed to evaluate the effect of the calorie deficit diet and strength training in patients with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. It is a prospec...

We report a case of a 44-year-old male with a 20-year history of dream enactment behavior that was incidentally captured on a polysomnogram during an evaluation for obstructive sleep apnea. Genetic testing found the patient had a homozygous deletion for one of the five tandem repeats in exon 18 of thePER3 gene. This case highlights a potential genetic basis for idiopathic rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder.Citation:Brock MS, Shirley S, Rohena L, Moore BA, Mysliwiec V. Unexpected finding of idiopathic REM sleep behavior disorder in a young healthy male with snoring: a case report.J Clin Sleep Med. 2019;15(9):1369–1371.

This study was designed to examine the association between sleep problems and different categories of OAD amongst US adults. METHODS: We 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 obstru...
