Clinical characteristics of non-sleepy obstructive sleep apnea patients: a study in a tertiary care sleep clinic in India
This study aims to evaluate epidemiological and clinical distinctions between sleepy and non-sleepy OSA patients. A retrospective analysis was conducted on consecutive patients undergoing polysomnography for OSA assessment at tertiary care hospitals between 2018 and 2023. For 176 of 250 patients, complete polysomnography records with OSA diagnoses were available. Non-sleepy OSA was defined when a patient had an Epworth sleepiness scale score <10 and polysomnography demonstrated an apnea hypopnea index ≥5/hour. Non-sleepy OSA patients were matched with sleepy OSA patients in terms of age and gender distribution (mean a...

Treatment of benign endobronchial tumors: when, how, and why. Insights, experiences, and interventional pulmonology strategies
Monaldi Arch Chest Dis. 2024 May 9. doi: 10.4081/monaldi.2024.2875. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBenign endobronchial tumors are rare clinical entities characterized by considerable variability in etiology and clinical presentation. The authors report four cases of endobronchial hamartomas treated and followed up from 2018 to 2023. Three of these cases, with identical endobronchial localization in the right lower lobe, were radically treated in flexible bronchoscopy with the only use of biopsy forceps. Another case with a different localization in the left main bronchus was treated with a laser through rigid bronchoscopy....

Rehabilitation in obstructive sleep apnea: an ignored treatment adjunct
Monaldi Arch Chest Dis. 2024 May 7. doi: 10.4081/monaldi.2024.3014. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPatients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) remain physically inactive during the day, are deconditioned, and have an impaired health-related quality of life (HRQoL). The role of rehabilitation is not yet defined in OSA, despite proven effective modalities for chronic illnesses like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. In this prospective study, over a period of one year, 30 individuals with sleep-disordered breathing were included. Before recruitment, every patient was receiving continuous positive airway pressure treatment...
