Mol Med. 2022 Jan 14;28(1):3. doi: 10.1186/s10020-021-00427-8.ABSTRACTThe mechanisms of chronic intermittent hypoxia (CIH)-induced cognitive deficits remain unclear. Here, our study found that about 3 months CIH treatment induced lipid droplets (LDs) accumulation in hippocampal nerve and glia cells of C57BL/6 mice, and caused severe neuro damage including neuron lesions, neuroblast (NB) apoptosis and abnormal glial activation. Studies have shown that the neuronal metabolism disorders might contribute to the CIH induced-hippocampal impairment. Mechanistically, the results showed that pyruvate dehydrogenase complex E1ɑ subu...

CONCLUSIONS: SDB, with particular emphasis on OSA, is a risk factor for bradycardia and advanced AVB during sleep, which may lead to a hasty qualification for pacemaker implantation. The severity of SDB determines the frequency and number of bradyarrhythmic episodes.PMID:35030262 | DOI:10.33963/KP.a2022.0011
