Continuous positive airway pressure effect on visual acuity in patients with type 2 diabetes and obstructive sleep apnoea: a multicentre randomised controlled trial We sought to establish whether continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) for obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) in people with type 2 diabetes and diabetic macular oedema (DMO) improved visual acuity.We randomly assigned 131 eligible patients aged 30-85 years from 23 UK centres with significant DMO causing visual impairment (LogMAR

62. Does Armodafinil Improve Driving Task Performance and Weight Loss in Sleep Apnea? A Randomized Trial (Abstract)

Does Armodafinil Improve Driving Task Performance and Weight Loss in Sleep Apnea? A Randomized Trial Patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) unable to tolerate standard treatments have few alternatives. They may benefit from weight loss, but the major symptom of daytime performance impairment may remain during weight loss programs.We hypothesized that wakefulness-promoter armodafinil would improve driving task performance over placebo in patients undergoing weight loss.This was a placebo (...) -controlled, double-blind, randomized trial of armodafinil versus placebo daily for 6 months in patients who were also randomized to one of two diets for 6 months with follow-up at 1 year in overweight, adult, patients with OSA who had rejected standard treatment and suffered daytime sleepiness.Primary outcome was change in steering deviation in the final 30 minutes of a 90-minute afternoon driving task (AusED) at 6 months.

Elevated obstructive sleep apnoea risk score is associated with poor healing of diabetic foot ulcers: a prospective cohort study To assess the prevalence of risk factors for obstructive sleep apnoea in people with diabetic foot ulcers and to determine whether this risk predicts diabetic foot ulcer healing.We studied 94 consecutive people (69% men) with diabetic foot ulcers (Type 2 diabetes, n=66, Type 1 diabetes, n=28) attending a university hospital foot unit. All participants were screened (...) for obstructive sleep apnoea using the STOP-BANG questionnaire, with a score ≥4 identifying high risk of obstructive sleep apnoea. The primary outcome was poor diabetic foot ulcer healing, defined as diabetic foot ulcer recurrence (diabetic foot ulcers which healed and re-ulcerated in same anatomical position) and/or diabetic foot ulcer persistence (no evidence of healing on clinical examination). All participants were evaluated at 12 months.Of the 94 participants, 60 (64%) had a STOP-BANG score ≥4. Over 12

Effect of 1 month of zopiclone on obstructive sleep apnoea severity and symptoms: a randomised controlled trial Hypnotic use in obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is contraindicated due to safety concerns.

Recanalisation therapies for wake-up stroke. About one in five strokes occur during sleep (wake-up stroke). People with wake-up strokes have traditionally been considered ineligible for thrombolytic treatment because the time of stroke onset is unknown. However, some studies suggest that these people may benefit from recanalisation therapies.To assess the effects of intravenous thrombolysis and other recanalisation therapies versus control in people with acute ischaemic stroke presenting (...) and unpublished data.We included one pilot trial with nine participants. The trial was a feasibility trial that included participants with an unknown onset of stroke and signs on perfusion computed tomography of ischaemic tissue at risk of infarction, who were randomised to alteplase (0.9 mg/kg) or placebo. One trial was prematurely terminated due to signs of efficacy of the intervention arm; we did not include this trial because we were not able to obtain data for the portion of the participants with wake-up

Intermittent Hypoxia and Hypercapnia, a Hallmark of Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Alters the Gut Microbiome and Metabolome Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common disorder characterized by episodic obstruction to breathing due to upper airway collapse during sleep. Because of the episodic airway obstruction, intermittently low O2 (hypoxia) and high CO2 (hypercapnia) ensue. OSA has been associated with adverse cardiovascular and metabolic outcomes, although data regarding potential causal pathways (...) are still evolving. As changes in inspired O2 and CO2 can affect the ecology of the gut microbiota and the microbiota has been shown to contribute to various cardiometabolic disorders, we hypothesized that OSA alters the gut ecosystem, which, in turn, exacerbates the downstream physiological consequences. Here, we model human OSA and its cardiovascular consequence using Ldlr-/- mice fed a high-fat diet and exposed to intermittent hypoxia and hypercapnia (IHH). The gut microbiome and metabolome were

Diagnostic accuracy of a two-stage model for detecting obstructive sleep apnoea in chronic tetraplegia Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is highly prevalent in people with spinal cord injury (SCI). Polysomnography (PSG) is the gold-standard diagnostic test for OSA, however PSG is expensive and frequently inaccessible, especially in SCI. A two-stage model, incorporating a questionnaire followed by oximetry, has been found to accurately detect moderate to severe OSA (MS-OSA) in a non-disabled (...) thresholds for diagnosing MS-OSA. The accuracy of both models in diagnosing MS-OSA was prospectively evaluated in 100 participants with chronic tetraplegia across four international SCI units.Injury completeness, sleepiness, self-reported snoring and apnoeas were included in the modified questionnaire, which was highly predictive of MS-OSA (ROC area under the curve 0.87 (95% CI 0.79 to 0.95)). The 3% oxygen desaturation index was also highly predictive (0.93 (0.87-0.98)). The two-stage model
