Simultaneous occurrence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and obstructive sleep apnea: the overlap syndrome.
Summary of "Simultaneous occurrence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and obstructive sleep apnea: the overlap syndrome."
Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is a common disorder in adults associated with several cardiovascular diseases and impaired quality of life. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is also a common clinical condition in middle-aged adults. The combination of these two conditions can eventuate a severe combined sleep-related breathing disorder. It is important to recognize coexisting sleep apnea in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in time and to treat it appropriately. Orv. Hetil., 2012, 153, 892-897.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Sleep Apnea, Central
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)
Sleep Apnea Syndromes
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.
Pulmonary Disease, Chronic Obstructive
A disease of chronic diffuse irreversible airflow obstruction. Subcategories of COPD include CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.
Pulmonary Heart Disease
Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.
A subcategory of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE. The disease is characterized by hypersecretion of mucus accompanied by a chronic (more than 3 months in 2 consecutive years) productive cough. Infectious agents are a major cause of chronic bronchitis.
Objective: To assess the outcomes of a 6-month comprehensive multidisciplinary outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation programme in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease according to age. De...
Case Pulmonary hypertension secondary to respiratory disease most often occurs as a complication of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which currently constitutes one of the leading causes of deat...
AIM AND OBJECTIVES: To describe and compare nutritional status, pulmonary function, gender and marital status in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. BACKGROUND: Chronic obstructive pu...
PURPOSE: Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) differs between genders in terms of the type, signs, and symptoms of the disease. Partial upper airway obstruction is underdiagnosed and undertreated. METHODS...
Pulmonary rehabilitation is a nonpharmacologic therapy that has emerged as a standard of care for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary, patient...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of temazepam during sleep and in daytime on dyspnea, gas exchange and sleep quality in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary dise...
GSK233705 is a high-affinity specific muscarinic receptor (mAChR) antagonist which is being developed for once daily treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The long du...
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a condition that is characterized by blockage of the airways due to inflammation. Levels of inflammatory proteins may be linked to when and...
The goal of the study is to look at how genes and certain chemicals in the body are related to depression and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
This research is being done to study mechanisms of progression of COPD and to develop treatments for it. The investigators are doing the present study to identify people age 40 and older w...
