Defining Risk of Postoperative Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Patients With 22q11.2DS Undergoing Pharyngeal Flap Surgery for Velopharyngeal Dysfunction Using Polysomnographic Evaluation.

CONCLUSIONS: Patients with 22q11.2DS are medically complex and are at increased risk of OSA at baseline. Wide PPF surgery for severe VPD does not significantly increase risk of OSA. Careful perioperative planning is essential to optimize both speech and sleep outcomes. PMID: 31973553 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study was aimed to estimate the prevalence of chronic pain in different regions of China. Data on pain and its treatment were collected from 9357 participants using questionnaires and telephone-based interviews, from 31 regions of China. Gathered data were then coded into electronic data acquisition system and descriptive and inferential statistical analysis was performed. Out of 9298 participants, the ratio of chronic pain was 31.54% with the proportion of male having chronic pain (33.86%) was higher than that of female (29.53%). The average age of participants with pain (45.02 ± 15.07 years) was higher than f...

Publication date: February 2020Source: Infant Behavior and Development, Volume 58Author(s): Elliott Gray Johnson, Janani Prabhakar, Lindsey N. Mooney, Simona GhettiAbstractEpisodic memory, or the ability to remember past events with specific detail, is central to the human experience and is related to learning and adaptive functioning in a variety of domains. In typically developing children, episodic memory emerges during infancy and improves during early childhood and beyond.

Conclusions There is no high-level evidence to guide tapering until discontinuation after extended courses of medium- to high-dose treatment regimens, as current guidelines rely heavily on expert opinion and small case series with a trial-and-error approach. This review supports the need for additional research to shift tapering recommendations to a more evidence-based practice.

Authors: Morton E, Murray G Abstract Sleep problems are highly prevalent in bipolar disorder (BD) and constitute an important therapeutic focus in this population: They are highly impairing and distressing, are an area of subjective importance to consumers, and likely play a role in predicting/triggering mood episodes. The aim of this review is to orient psychologists and psychotherapists to current research relevant to their clinical practice with people with BD, including (a) the prevalence and presentation of sleep problems, (b) the impacts and correlates of impaired sleep, and (c) the relationship between sleep...

Authors: Petrossian RA, Dynda D, Delfino K, El-Zawahry A, McVary KT Abstract INTRODUCTION: The role of organized sleep in overall health and quality-of-life (QoL) is critical. Nocturia necessarily disrupts the normal sleep cycle and negatively impacts one's health, work productivity, and QoL. We investigated, for the first time in an exploratory pilot, the effectiveness of mirabegron for improving sleep disturbance and nocturia. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a prospective, open-label 12-week trial evaluating the efficacy of mirabegron in 34 men and women with disordered sleep and lower urinary tract symptoms ...

The objective of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to assess the relationship between GB therapy dose and duration on sleep quality, daytime somnolence, and intensity of pain in patients with NP. Subgroup comparisons were planned for high- vs low-dose GBs, where 300 mg per day or more of pregabalin was used to classify high-dose therapy. Trial data were segregated by duration less than 6 weeks and 6 weeks or greater. Twenty randomized controlled trials were included. Primary outcome measures included pain-related sleep interference and incidence of daytime somnolence. Secondary outcomes included daily pain score...
