Images: A Case of EEG Artifact By Proxy

In this manuscript we describe a case of electroencephalography artifact during polysomnography that occurred in the context of mother co-sleeping with her child. The potential interference from a co-sleeping parent’s electrocardiography, as illustrated in this case, may be an under-recognized source of electroencephalography artifact in pediatric patients.Citation:Li A, Matthews CK, Plante DT.

Abstract Sleep consolidates episodic content of emotional memories. Whether it likewise preserves or, to the contrary, depotentiates the emotional response associated with memory content is unclear, as there is conflicting evidence. In the current study, we investigated the influence of an afternoon nap (2-hr nap opportunity) on emotional responses of memories using multiple simultaneous measures. Young adults viewed 45 negative and 45 neutral pictures before taking a nap (measured with polysomnography) or remaining awake. Following the nap or wake period, participants viewed the same pictures intermixed with nove...

Discussion Pulmonary embolism (PE) is potentially life-threatening but fortunately rare event especially in the pediatric population. It was first described in children in 1861. PE is likely underreported because of minimal or non-specific clinical symptoms. The incidence is estimated at 0.05-4.2% with the 4.2% based on autopsy reports. It is probably also increasing as more central venous catheters (CVC) are used, and more children are surviving previously poor prognostic diseases. There is a bimodal distribution with cases

A 57-year-old male with known history of obstructive sleep apnea was admitted for shortness of breath. On exam, patient was tachycardic with increased jugular venous pressure. Electrocardiogram showed sinus tachycardia with right ventricular strain and ST-segment depressions in the lateral leads. A computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA) demonstrated no evidence of pulmonary embolism. Incidentally, a double aortic arch (DAA) was noted on CTPA (Fig. 1, Fig. 2). On laboratory exam, the patient had elevated troponin I at 0.276 ng/mL.

This study aimed to examine the effects of warm steam inhalation before bedtime on subsequent sleep quality. The participants included 17 adult men with mild sleep difficulties and anxiety. All experiments were conducted in the participants' homes. The participants were instructed to wear a warm steam-generating mask or sham mask over the nose and mouth for 15 minutes immediately before habitual bedtime and were then allowed to sleep until their habitual waking time. The functional mask provided approximately 600 mg of steam for 10 minutes and maintained an interior temperature of 38-40°C for 15&th...

Abstract PURPOSE: We aimed to evaluate the validity of the cardiopulmonary coupling (CPC) device, a limited-channel portable monitoring device for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) screening in one single-center cohort, in particular in those with some cardiovascular diseases since the cardiopulmonary coupling might be different from those without. METHODS: Consecutive patients referred to the sleep medical center for assessment of possible OSA were enrolled in this study. Patients were examined with standard polysomnography (PSG) and CPC evaluation simultaneously. The results of the two examinations were compare...
