Purpose of review In previous years, there was limited research related to the role of sleep in interstitial lung diseases (ILDs). Physicians treating ILD patients tended to focus mainly on the daily disabling symptoms overlooking the possible significant role of coexisting sleep disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). However, recently, there has been a growing interest in OSA in ILDs, as well as OSA effect on sleep, life quality and outcome in these patients with emphasis on idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Recent findings OSA has been recognized as an important, high-prevalence comorbidity for the dia...

Authors: Kang HH, Lim CH, Oh JH, Cho MJ, Lee SH Abstract Background/Aims: As there is insufficient evidence for a relationship between gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), we investigated whether OSA diagnosed by polysomnography (PSG) is related to GERD. Methods: A total of 402 subjects was evaluated. Overnight PSG was performed and a few questionnaires on GERD, anxiety, depression, and daytime sleepiness were administered. An apnea-hypopnea index

CONCLUSIONS: Oropharyngeal surgery improves nasal obstruction during sleep and lowers the supine TNR measured in poste- rior rhinomanometry in patients with moderate-severe OSA. Oropharyngeal surgery is a possible treatment for postural nasal obstruction in patients with moderate-severe OSA. PMID: 32779643 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a prevalent, chronic medical condition that affects 13% of the adult population globally at least once a week. Sleep disturbances are frequently encountered in up to 25% of the GERD patients, likely due to nocturnal gastroesophageal reflux (GER). With advance in diagnostic techniques allowing for an improved understanding of involved physiological mechanisms of nocturnal reflux, there is growing evidence of a bidirectional relationship between GERD and sleep disturbances. Furthermore, nocturnal GER is associated with more complicated GERD. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and GERD als...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to update evidence answering four questions: (1) Is there an association between periodontitis and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)? (2) Is there evidence of causality? (3) Is there a dose-response relationship between the two conditions? (4) Is there evidence on efficacy of periodontitis interventions on the occurrence and/or severity of OSA or vice versa?Recent FindingsThirteen studies were included in the qualitative analysis, and nine of them were included in the quantitative analysis. Seven studies were case-control and six were cross-sectio...
