To examine the impact of using a nasal pressure sensor only vs the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) recommended combination of thermal and nasal pressure sensors on (1) the apnea index (AI), (2) the apnea-hypopnea index (AHI), where the AHI is calculated using both AASM definitions of hypopnea, and (3) the accuracy of a diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

The French Society of Research and Sleep Medicine (SFRMS) organized a meeting on obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) in children. A multidisciplinary group of specialists (pulmonologists, ENT surg...
Current scoring criteria of non-apneic events (ie, hypopnea) require the presence of oxyhemoglobin desaturation and/or arousal. However, other sleep study parameters may help to identify abnormal resp...
Endothelial dysfunction, a major predictor of late cardiovascular events, is linked to the severity of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Literature has addressed the increased prevalence of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Significant improvement of GERD has been found after OSA treatment. Howeve...
OS 12-02 SLEEP APNEA CARDIOVASCULAR ENDPOINTS (SAVE) STUDY: AN INTERNATIONAL RANDOMISED CONTROLLED TRIAL TO DETERMINE WHETHER CONTINUOUS POSITIVE AIRWAYS PRESSURE TREATMENT FOR OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA IN PATIENTS WITH CV DISEASE PREVENTS SECONDARY CARDIOVASCULAR EVENTS.
There is uncertainty over whether treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can prevent serious cardiovascular (CV) events.
The investigators wish to prospectively determine the response to CPAP in patients presenting with mild OSA. In many healthcare systems, patients with mild OSA (AHI 5-15) are not reimburse...

A condition associated with multiple episodes of sleep apnea which are distinguished from obstructive sleep apnea (SLEEP APNEA, OBSTRUCTIVE) by the complete cessation of efforts to breathe. This disorder is associated with dysfunction of central nervous system centers that regulate respiration. This condition may be idiopathic (primary) or associated with lower brain stem lesions; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (LUNG DISEASES, OBSTRUCTIVE); HEART FAILURE, CONGESTIVE; medication effect; and other conditions. Sleep maintenance is impaired, resulting in daytime hypersomnolence. Primary central sleep apnea is frequently associated with obstructive sleep apnea. When both forms are present the condition is referred to as mixed sleep apnea (see SLEEP APNEA SYNDROMES). (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p395; Neurol Clin 1996;14(3):611-28)
Biological actions and events that support the functions of the RESPIRATORY SYSTEM.
Disorders characterized by multiple cessations of respirations during sleep that induce partial arousals and interfere with the maintenance of sleep. Sleep apnea syndromes are divided into central (see SLEEP APNEA, CENTRAL), obstructive (see SLEEP APNEA, OBSTRUCTIVE), and mixed central-obstructive types.
A noninvasive diagnostic technique that enables an experienced clinician to perform direct microscopic examination of the surface and architecture of pigmented SKIN lesions. The four major dermoscopic criteria are ABCD: asymmetry (A), borders (B), colors (C), and different structural components (D) providing a semiquantitative scoring system for each lesion.
An abnormal pattern of breathing characterized by alternating periods of apnea and deep, rapid breathing. The cycle begins with slow, shallow breaths that gradually increase in depth and rate and is then followed by a period of apnea. The period of apnea can last 5 to 30 seconds, then the cycle repeats every 45 seconds to 3 minutes.
