AbstractThe ongoing global pandemic brought on by the spread of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is having profound effects on human health and well-being. With no viable vaccine presently available and the virus being rapidly transmitted, governments and national health authorities have acted swiftly, recommending ‘lockdown’ policies and/or various levels of social restriction/isolation to attenuate the rate of infection. An immediate consequence of these strategies is reduced exposure to daylight, which can result in marked changes in patterns of daily living such as the timing of meals, and sleep. These disr...

We present a case report on a 55 ‐year‐old male with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), diabetes, and obesity requiring escalation to high‐flow oxygen by high‐velocity nasal insufflation (HVNI; Vapotherm). As this patient required frequent clinician interaction and use of personal protective equipment (PPE) to control flow rat e and oxygen fraction due to lability, and the patient was alert, we instructed the patient to modify the oxygen to maintain an SpO2 (peripheral capillary oxygen saturation) target range and flow rate, to address dyspnoea as well as reduction of flow, as tolerated, when other staff entered the r...

Shiftworkers show increased risk for developing viral infections due to possible compromise of both innate and acquired immunity responses. Short sleep and sleep loss, common cons...

Another term is being added to the lexicon in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic: quarantine brain. It takes many forms, from confusion and fogginess to limited executive functioning.
