Conclusions: Our data are in accordance with previous findings outlining that N + insomniacs have higher PSQI scores than N-. Our results do not confirm the suggested association between napping and depressive or obsessive-compulsive symptoms. Conversely, we found a statistically significant difference (p = 0.0014) in EAT scores in N + and N-. Hyperarousal and REM sleep instability in insomniac patients may create an unbalance of the neuroendocrine hypothalamic regulation leading to an appetite alteration.

CONCLUSIONS: Data suggest that patients with insomnia and sleep apnea, compared to patients with only sleep apnea, presented higher left high-frequency rhythms during pre-sleep wakefulness and R sleep stage, and may be for increased emotional and cognitive-related activity, while in stage N1, presented higher left delta power, which suggest some slowing after sleep deprivation.

Background: Cardio-metabolic risk and clinical presentation profile in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) differs between men and women.Objective: To evaluate the influence of gender on OSA-related symptoms and prevalent cardio-metabolic disease in the European Sleep Apnea Database (ESADA) cohort.Methods: We identified a sample of 18,872 patients (mean age 52 years, 30% women) from the ESADA cohort with complete data from polygraphic or polysomnographic recordings and Epworth sleepiness scale (ESS). The predictive value of gender on associated symptoms and prevalent cardio-metabolic disease was investigated after adjustment for...

Introduction: Solriamfetol (JZP-110), a selective dopamine and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, was effective in treating excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) in narcolepsy and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in phase 3 studies.Aims and Objectives: To evaluate long-term safety and efficacy of solriamfetol for EDS in narcolepsy and OSA.Methods: Participants who completed prior solriamfetol studies initiated open-label (OL) solriamfetol with a 2-wk titration followed by a maintenance phase of ≤50 wk. A 2-wk placebo-controlled randomized withdrawal (RW) phase began after 6 mo. Change in Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) during ...

Introduction: Smoking is highly prevalent in patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS) and studies have revealed that OSAS may predispose to nicotine addiction.Objectives: To evaluate if there are differences in the smoking habits between different severity groups of OSAS (i.e. no, mild, moderate, severe).Methods: Patients visiting a Sleep Clinic were prospectively studied. They completed a questionnaire on their smoking habits, the Fagerstrom Test for Nicotine Dependence (FTND), Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS), Stop Bang (SB) and Athens Insomnia Scale (AIS). Sleep studies were performed.Results: 925 smokers wer...

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...

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...
