Poor performance of screening questionnaires for obstructive sleep apnea in male commercial drivers
CONCLUSIONS: Standard OSA questionnaires are not suited for screening among CDs. The use of the HSAT could provide an objective evaluation of for OSA in this special population.PMID:34136978 | DOI:10.1007/s11325-021-02414-z (Source: Sleep and Breathing)

Two effective clinical prediction models to screen for obstructive sleep apnoea based on body mass index and other parameters
ConclusionsBMI can be used as an indicator  to screen for OSA in the community. We created an internally validated, highly distinguishable, visual and parsimonious prediction model comprising BMI and other parameters that can be used to identify patients with OSA among outpatients. Use of this prediction model may help to improve clinical decision-making. (Source: Sleep and Breathing)

Metabolic outcomes in adults with type 2 diabetes and sleep disorders
This study in adults with T2D compared metabolic outcomes among persons with OSA, insomnia, or OSA + I.METHODS: This study analyzed baseline data from the Diabetes Sleep Treatment Trial of persons recruited for symptoms of OSA or poor sleep quality. Home sleep studies determined OSA presence and severity. Insomnia was evaluated using the Insomnia Severity Index. Height and weight to calculate body mass index (BMI) and blood for laboratory values were obtained. Multivariate general linear models were used to examine the impact of the type of sleep disorder and sociodemographic, lifestyle, and sleep risk factors on metabolic...

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on positive airway pressure usage in children with sleep-disordered breathing
CONCLUSIONS: COVID-19 pandemic has provided opportunities for increased PAP usage in a significant number of children with SDB. A subset of children with prior evidence for suboptimal PAP usage showed further decreases in PAP usage during the pandemic. This information is critical for clinicians to provide anticipatory guidance to encourage PAP usage both during the pandemic and beyond.PMID:34105105 | PMC:PMC8187134 | DOI:10.1007/s11325-021-02409-w (Source: Sleep and Breathing)

Impaired intestinal barrier in patients with obstructive sleep apnea
AbstractBackgroundObstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is often associated with multisystem damage. The gut is a pivotal organ that initiates the pathophysiological processes of multisystem diseases. Intermittent hypoxia resulting from OSA may impair the intestinal barrier prior to the induction of systemic inflammation. We hypothesize that the intestinal barrier markers D-lactic acid (D-LA) and intestinal fatty acid –binding protein (I-FABP) levels would be higher in patients with OSA.MethodsConsecutive snoring and nonsnoring adults were included in this study and were grouped based on their apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) scor...
