CONCLUSION: CPAP indication without a previous sleep study showed a low sensitivity (≅ 22%) but a specificity greater than 95% in patients with high pretest probability for OSA (snoring, report of frequent apneas, BMI> 25 kg/m2 and sleepiness or tiredness plus comorbidity).

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...

CONCLUSIONS: The hypertension risk might be reduced by treated OSA, ODI, and snoring, as well as appropriate sleep duration. More studies with large sample sizes and high qualities should be included to support the findings further. PMID: 31402441 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

SummaryThe possible relationship between lung cancer and nocturnal intermittent hypoxia, apnea and daytime sleepiness, especially the possible relationship between the occurrence and progression of lung cancer and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) was explored. Forty-five cases of primary lung cancer suitable for surgical resection at the Third Affiliated Hospital of Kunming Medical University between January 2017 and December 2017 were recruited (lung cancer group), and there were 45 patients in the control group who had no significant differences in age, sex and other general data from lung cancer group. The analyz...

CONCLUSION: In present study, the patients with obstructive sleep apnea with long average duration were found to have more negative effects of sleep apnea than the patients with short average duration. We think that the use of mean apnea-hypopnea duration as an indicator with apnea-hypopnea index will be beneficial for the follow-up and treatment of the disease.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a condition in which the soft tissues of the throat relax and narrow the airways during sleep, may raise the risk of developing heart problems after surgery, according toresearch published this week inJAMA. In OSA, breathing stops and starts multiple times during sleep, resulting in snoring, gasping for air, poor sleep quality, morning headaches, daytime fatigue, irritability, and difficulty concentrating.The study, led by Matthew T. V. Chan, Ph.D., M.B.B.S., of the Chinese University of Hong Kong included 1,218 patients aged 45 years or older who had abdominal, vascular, or major orthopedic ...
