PURPOSE: Cognitive decline (CD) and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are often comorbid. Some modifiable risk factors (RF) for CD are also associated with OSA. Diagnostic polysomnography (PSG) measures these RF and may identify at risk patients prior to the o...

ConclusionsThe findings suggest children with 22q11DS may have a higher risk of experiencing clinical sleep problems, compared to typically developing children. Consideration of additional screening and treatment of sleep disorders in children with 22q11DS is warranted.

Abstract Good sleep is considered to be the cornerstone for maintaining both physical and mental health. However, nearly one billion people worldwide suffer from various sleep disorders. To date, polysomnography (PSG) is the most commonly used sleep-monitoring technology,however, it is complex, intrusive, expensive and uncomfortable. Unfortunately, present noninvasive monitoring technologies cannot simultaneously achieve high sensitivity, multi-parameter monitoring and comfort. Here, we present a single-layered, ultra-soft, smart textile for all-around physiological parameters monitoring and healthcare during slee...

PURPOSE: Determinants of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are hypoxemia and hypercapnia, as well as (micro) arousals from sleep, resulting in chronic sleep fragmentation, sleep deprivation, and excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS). All of the above-mentioned fa...

The last decade has seen tremendous advances in the field of metabolic and bariatric surgery. Evidence from randomized trials continues to build showing that in addition to obesity, type 2 diabetes (T2D) and other diseases improve postoperatively1 –3, at least partially via weight-independent mechanisms4–6. Even though many attribute degree of obesity with severity of obesity-associated disease (e.g. diabetes, sleep apnea), this is not necessarily the case. Variables other than body weight clearly affect T2D development and severity.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a global disease that is a manifestation of metabolic syndrome. Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT), a special type of visceral adipose tissue, has been proposed to be an independent predictor of visceral adiposity. Both OSA and EAT have a close association with diabetes and coronary artery disease. Whether EAT thickness is associated with OSA is controversial.

AbstractObjectiveSleep quality is vital for healthy development in children. Sleep disorders are prevalent and negatively affect sleep quality. Early identification and appropriate intervention can improve children ’s health and quality of life. The current reference standard, polysomnography (PSG) has limitations regarding availability, cost, and access and may not replicate normal sleep patterns in the home. Simple, accurate sleep tests, available for repeated testing should be beneficial in management of sleep disorders.MethodSecondary analysis of PSG data from the prospective multicenter Childhood Adenotonsillect...
