By AMEYA KULKARNI, MD When Samuel Morse left his New Haven home to paint a portrait of the Maquis du Lafayette in Washington DC, it was the last time he would see his pregnant wife. Shortly after his arrival in Washington, his wife developed complications during childbirth. A messenger took several days on horseback to relay the message to Mr Morse. Because the trip back to New Haven took several more, his wife had died by the time he arrived at their home. So moved was he by the tragedy of lost time that he dedicated the majority of the rest of his life to make sure that this would never happen to anyone again. H...

Evidence of an association between sleep apnea (SA) and early neurological deterioration (END) in acute phase ischemic stroke is scant. We investigated the prevalence of SA and the impact of SA severity on END in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients.
Background: Obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) may influence the prognosis of acute ischemic stroke (AIS). Our objective is to study the impact of early screening and treatment of OSAHS in AIS.Methods: 24 patients with AIS
Abstract OBJECTIVES: To assess the prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) in children with arterial ischemic stroke (AIS) and to evaluate its association with neuropsychological outcomes. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional study of sleep health and neuropsychological outcome in children with AIS. A consecutive cohort of children attending a stroke clinic were assessed using a standardized pediatric sleep questionnaire (PSQ) and standardized measures of pediatric stroke outcome and intellectual, executive and adaptive function. High risk for OSAS was defined as PSQ score ≥0.33. RESU...
(CNN) — It’s Sunday morning, and you open your eyes to discover it’s still incredibly early because — huzzah! — we’ve reached the end of the seasonal practice known as Daylight Saving Time. Do you: A) Immediately roll over and go back to sleep? or B) Tell yourself that you shouldn’t be lazy, and get up to make the most of this “extra” hour? It’s a trick question, because there isn’t a perfectly right answer that would be the same for everyone. But in general, experts say, most should use the fall time change to squeeze in more sleep — and with zero gu...
Conclusion: We show that sleep is severely disturbed in patients with acute ischemic stroke admitted to stroke units. Larger studies are needed to clarify associations between deprivation of deep sleep and secondary deterioration.
