Sleep Disordered Breathing in Adults with Cerebral Palsy: What Do We Know So Far?
South Med J. 2021 Jun;114(6):339-342. doi: 10.14423/SMJ.0000000000001264.ABSTRACTAs advances in medicine continue to extend the lifespan of patients with cerebral palsy (CP), emphasis must be placed on evaluating patients for chronic health issues common in the general adult population. Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) affects a large number of otherwise healthy adults and is even more common in individuals with disability. SDB includes the following subtypes: obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea, and sleep-related hypoventilation/hypoxemia. SDB consequences include poor daytime functioning from sleepiness and an i...

Training Appalachian Kentucky Youth Cancer Advocates
CONCLUSIONS: Youth represent potentially powerful agents of advocacy that could help address the cancer burden in Kentucky. Participants in this study likely overestimated their advocacy abilities before learning more about advocacy and participating in the process. As such, additional trainings are likely necessary to increase students' self-efficacy, encourage them to share their stories, and help them overcome perceived barriers.PMID:34075428 | DOI:10.14423/SMJ.0000000000001256 (Source: Southern Medical Journal)

Child Sleep and Parent Depressive Symptoms
This study examines the relation between parents who screen positive for depressive symptoms and their perception of their child's sleep.METHODS: Three hundred sixty-nine English-speaking parents of children ages 3 to 5 years (n = 134) or 6 to 11 years (n = 235) met this study's inclusion criteria within the Southwestern Ohio Ambulatory Research Network (response rate 90%). The validated scales used were the RAND Depression Screener (DS), the Wisconsin Abbreviated Children's Sleep Habits Questionnaire (WCSHQ), and the Jenkins Sleep Questionnaire. Multiple logistic regression was used to determine adjusted odds ratios (AORs...
