Those who underwent concurrent palatal or tongue base sleep surgery were excluded. Outcomes included simultaneous (...) procedures, apnea-hypopnea index (AHI), lowest oxyhemoglobin saturation (LSAT), and Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS).Nineteen patients with OSA underwent HMS without palatal or tongue base sleep surgery.

104. Impact of Mandibular Advancement Therapy on Endothelial Function in Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea (Abstract)

Impact of Mandibular Advancement Therapy on Endothelial Function in Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea Endothelial dysfunction, a major predictor of late cardiovascular events, is linked to the severity of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).To determine whether treatment with mandibular advancement device, the main alternative to continuous positive airway pressure, improves endothelial function in patients with severe OSA.In this trial, we randomized patients with severe OSA and no overt cardiovascular (...) disease to receive 2 months of treatment with either effective mandibular advancement device or a sham device. The primary outcome, change in reactive hyperemia index, a validated measurement of endothelial function, was assessed on an intention-to-treat basis. An embedded microsensor objectively measured treatment compliance.A total of 150 patients (86% males; mean [SD] age, 54 [10] yr; median [interquartile range] apnea-hypopnea index, 41 [35-53]; mean [SD] Epworth sleepiness scale, 9.3 [4.2]) were

Insomnia and somnolence in idiopathic RBD: a prospective cohort study Although some sleep disorders are markers of prodromal Parkinson's disease and dementia with Lewy bodies, it is unclear whether insomnia and somnolence can predict disease.

Pittsburgh Index scores were higher in patients than controls (7.2+/-3.8 vs. 4.9+/-3.4, p = 0.004), mainly driven by the sleep disturbance/medication components (reflecting rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder symptoms/treatment). Baseline Pittsburgh scores did not predict conversion to neurodegeneration, although sleep duration increased over time in those converting to neurodegenerative disease (+0.88+/-1.32 h, p = 0.014).

People with insomnia often have difficulty falling asleep or difficulty remaining asleep. They may (...) also wake up frequently, experience early awakening, have a limited amount of sleep, or have a poor quality of sleep. Insomnia may be acute, meaning it generally starts suddenly and lasts for less than three months, or it may be chronic, meaning it lasts for a longer duration. Insomnia may affect a person’s ability to work or study, and can negatively affect their relationships with others. People with insomnia may experience a reduced quality of life because of the consequences of poor sleep

111. Ultrasonographic Detection of Airway Obstruction in a Model of Obstructive Sleep Apnea Full Text available with Trip Pro

Ultrasonographic Detection of Airway Obstruction in a Model of Obstructive Sleep Apnea Purpose Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common clinical disorder characterized by repetitive airway obstruction during sleep. The gold standard for diagnosis of OSA, polysomnogram (PSG), cannot anatomically localize obstruction. Precise identification of obstruction has potential to improve outcomes following surgery. Current diagnostic modalities that provide this information require anesthesia, involve (...) ionizing radiation or disrupt sleep. To mitigate these problems, we conceived that ultrasound (US) technology may be adapted (i) to detect, quantify and localize airway obstruction and (ii) for translational application to home-based testing for OSA. Materials and Methods Segmental airway collapse was induced in 4 fresh cadavers by application of negative pressure. Following visualization of airway obstruction, a rotary US probe was used to acquire transcervical images of the airway before and after

Screening for Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Adults: US Preventive Services Task Force Recommendation Statement. Based on data from the 1990s, estimated prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in the United States is 10% for mild OSA and 3.8% to 6.5% for moderate to severe OSA; current prevalence may be higher, given the increasing prevalence of obesity. Severe OSA is associated with increased all-cause mortality, cardiovascular disease and cerebrovascular events, diabetes, cognitive impairment
