This study was conducted among consecutive adults, who were admitted to the Department of Pulmonary Medicine, Marmara University, Istanbul between November 2015 and October 2018. Participants answered the questionnaires and underwent a sleep study with cardiorespiratory polygraphy. OSA was defined as an Apnoe-Hypopnoe-Index (AHI)≥15/h.In all, 1042 adults (334 women; 32.1%) were included. OSA was diagnosed in 589 (56.5%). In the OSA group, women were older (53.7±11.5 vs 47.8± 12.8 yrs; p

AbstractPurposeThe gender differences in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are not fully understood so far, as previous studies had conflicting results. No reports have addressed the differences in OSA between Chinese men and women. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical and polysomnographic differences between Chinese men and women with OSA.MethodsThis case-paired control retrospective study included 580 consecutive Chinese patients (290 males and 290 females) newly diagnosed as OSA by overnight polysomnography from the Sleep Disorders Center of Tangdu Hospital affiliated to the Fou...

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 examined the cross-sectional association of sleep apnea and indices of sleep quality with both episodic migraine (EM) and chronic migraine (CM). BACKGROUND: Sleep apnea and abnormal patterns of sleep, such as insomnia, were associated with migraine onset, severity, and progression in previous research. METHODS: The Chronic Migraine Epidemiology &Outcomes Study, a longitudinal study, used a series of web-based surveys to assess migraine symptoms, burden, and patterns of health care utilization. Quota sampling was used from September 2012 to November 2013 to generate a representative sample of the US populat...

Discussion Sleep disorders are common in all ages particularly with sleep deprivation in our increasingly busy world. Sleep problems are more common in patients with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, epilepsy, headache and visual impairments. Sleep problems can cause cognitive and behavioral impairments including emotional regulation problems, increased seizures or headaches, and impaired attention and have been known to prolong recovery from various acquired brain injuries. Parasomnias are “undesirable events that accompany sleep and typically occur during sleep-wake transitions.” The term sleep terr...

Abstract The relationship of sleep and migraine is unequivocal and familiarity with the nature and magnitude of these associations may inform clinical practice. Recent prospective, longitudinal, and time-series analysis has begun to unravel the magnitude and temporal patterns of sleep and migraine. Prospective evidence has shown that sleep variables can trigger acute migraine, precede and predict new onset headache by several years, and indeed, sleep disturbance and snoring are risk factors for chronification. The presence of a sleep disorder is associated with more frequent and severe migraine and portends a poor...

Introduction: Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a prevalent disease. A Brazilian study estimated the prevalence of OSA in the adult population in 32.8%. The most frequent signs and symptoms of OSA are snoring, apnea, excessive sleepiness, nocturia, cognitive impairment, depressive  symptoms, difficulty concentrating, sexual impotence and morning headache. Birth cohort studies bring the possibility of conducting research with a temporal window that begins at birth and extends to the present, representing an opportunity that may help us to understand the mechanisms that lead to OSA.

Sleep is a critically important component of human existence. On average, humans spend about 25%-35% of their lives sleeping. Sleep allows both the body and brain to rest and recover from the stress of daily life. As such, trouble sleeping can cause a range of health problems, and if left untreated dire consequences. Longing for more sleep There is a common misconception that there is an exact amount of sleep that the body requires. The necessary hours of sleep can vary, as some people can require as little as five hours or as much as nine hours to function optimally. In addition, too little or too much sleep can cause pro...

Background: Excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can affect negatively individuals' health and quality of life and are associated with various comorbidities. Aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of EDS and OSA risk and to explore their association with socio-demographic and anthropometric characteristics and comorbidities of individuals visiting a primary health care setting in NE Greece.Methods: Every third patient visiting the health center was invited to participate. Finally, 771 subjects (mean age 58.2±13.1 years; 43% women) were enrolled, in a 6-month period. Socio-demo...
