421. Pillar palatal implant system (Medtronic Xomed Inc.) for obstructive sleep apnea

Xomed Inc.) for obstructive sleep apnea . Lansdale: HAYES, Inc.. 2010 Authors' objectives Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a disorder in which breathing stops for periods of at least 10 seconds during sleep. Partial or complete collapse of airway at the back of the throat decreases oxygen uptake and carbon dioxide release. Several apneic episodes during a night’s sleep disrupt normal sleep patterns, resulting in excessive daytime sleepiness and other symptoms of sleepdisordered breathing. The pauses (...)

A randomized study on the effect of weight loss on obstructive sleep apnea among obese patients with type 2 diabetes: the Sleep AHEAD study The belief that weight loss improves obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has limited empirical support. The purpose of this 4-center study was to assess the effects of weight loss on OSA over a 1-year period.The study included 264 participants with type 2 diabetes and a mean (SD) age of 61.2 (6.5) years, weight of 102.4 (18.3) kg, body mass index (BMI (...) ) (calculated as weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared) of 36.7 (5.7), and an apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) of 23.2 (16.5) events per hour. The participants were randomly assigned to either a behavioral weight loss program developed specifically for obese patients with type 2 diabetes (intensive lifestyle intervention [ILI]) or 3 group sessions related to effective diabetes management (diabetes support and education [DSE]).The ILI participants lost more weight at 1 year than did DSE

Disturbances in People With Cancer and Their Caregivers, an increased focus has existed on the prevalence and distress experienced by patients with cancer with sleep-wake disturbances, particularly insomnia.

Adenotonsillectomy is the most commonly used intervention to treat sleep apnoea in children.To determine the efficacy of adenotonsillectomy in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnoea in children.The Cochrane Airways Group Specialised Register was searched with pre-specified terms. Searches were current as of August 2008.Randomised trials (...) as to the criteria required to diagnose significant obstructive sleep apnoea in children. Also the natural history of the condition has not been fully delineated. There is an absence of randomised controlled trials investigating the efficacy of treatment of confirmed obstructive sleep apnoea with adenotonsillectomy in children.
