New Paths in Respiratory Sleep Medicine

Sleep health and tracking sleep with contemporary wearables have become more popular. Sleep disorders, in particular, sleep-disordered breathing, have a higher prevalence than estimated previously. Many patients with apnea and hypopnea events suffer whereas others do not report complaints or show cardiovascular consequences. Assessment with wearables may support efforts to distinguish which type of apnea is related to aging and which to cardiovascular comorbidities. Innovative methods offer smart solutions for problems that are insufficiently addressed. Telemedical concepts help bring patients to sleep medicine expertise at an early stage. To use these methods clinically, they must be certified as medical devices.

In conclusion, the study revealed that higher levels of fatigue and DOMS occur concurrently with better nights of sleep. Moreover, any in-season variations concerning internal load and perceived wellness seems independent of position or status in outfield players. The data also showed that the higher the players’ reported stress, the lower the observed s-RPE, thus possibly indicating a mutual interference of experienced stress levels on the assimilation of training intensity by elite women soccer players.

Are dreams a message from the soul or meaningless ‘brain farts’? Groups dedicated to interpretation are thrivingJason DeBord regrets the demise of an old parlour game once much-loved in the 19th century: What Did I Eat Last Night? It involved a player recounting their dreams – recorded in a journal upon waking – as an audience was challenged to guess what dream-provoking food they had consumed for the previous night’s supper, be it stilton, rarebit or undercooked or cured meats (all understood to be culprits when it came to colourful dreaming).“Maybe you had eaten rare beef and then you ...

Conclusions Limited lead EEG may be useful in predicting adverse outcomes and risk for delirium in older critically ill patients. Although this population is at the highest risk for mortality, delirium is not easily identified by current clinical assessments. Therefore, further investigation of limited lead EEG for delirium detection is warranted.

CONCLUSIONS: Telemedicine was utilized more during months of heightened COVID-19 cases, with higher completion rates, fewer cancellations, shorter cycle times, saved travel distance, and comparable patient satisfaction to in-person visits. Telemedicine has the potential to remain an efficient mode of care delivery in the post-pandemic era.PMID:34861781 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211055349

We describe different dimensions of daytime sleepiness in adults with moderate-severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) before and after 2 years of positive airway pressure (PAP) treatment. Using the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (score>10 defined as "risk of dozing") and Basic Nordic Sleep Questionnaire (feeling sleepy ≥3 times/week defined as "feeling sleepy"), participants were categorised into sleepiness phenotypes labelled non-sleepy, risk of dozing only, feeling sleepy only, or both symptoms. Participants repeated baseline assessments and PAP adherence was evaluated after 2 years. PAP-adherent subjec...

In this study, it was investigated whether social support directly impacts sleep quality and whether positive psychological capital mediates and gender moderates the relationship between social support and sleep quality among this group. Methods A total of 178 patients implanted with pacemakers were recruited to participate in the study from 2 tertiary hospitals in Shandong, China. Patients were assessed using the Perceived Social Support Scale, Positive PsyCap Questionnaire, and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI). Multiple linear regression and the PROCESS macro were used to test the mediating and moderated medi...
