The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of Transvenous Hypoglossal Nerve Stimulation (tHGNS) on tongue position in the upper airway. Activation of the HGN will cause contraction ...
Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the gold standard to normalize breathing during sleep in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrom (OSA). Many patients will not tolerate ...
The study objectives are to demonstrate the ease and safety of bilateral cervically implanted phrenic nerve stimulators for Central Sleep Apnea in patients with Heart Failure. To demonstra...
This study aims at quantifying the performance of kinesthetic stimulation to reduce the burden of obstructive sleep apneas and hypopneas.
This study will evaluate the effect of hypoglossal nerve stimulation (HGNS) on different measures of cardiovascular function in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). People with OSA...
In pediatric obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the relationship between rapid eye movement sleep and upper airway collapse, and between sleep position and airway dimensions are well known. However, the i...
Upper airway stimulation plays an increasingly important role in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The target of stimulation is the hypoglossal nerve (N. XII), which-as a pure motor ne...
Obstructive sleep apnea is an underdiagnosed sleep-related breathing disorder affecting millions of people. Recurrent episodes of apnea/hypopnea result in intermittent hypoxia leading to oxidative str...
To quantify changes in sleep architecture before and after upper airway stimulation (UAS) therapy in patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
Pacing patients was revealed with a high prevalence of sleep disorder, but mostly undiagnosed. The pacemaker with transthoracic impedance sensor and novel algorithm could identify sleep apnea (SA) eve...
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 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)
Dyssomnias (i.e., insomnias or hypersomnias) associated with dysfunction of internal sleep mechanisms or secondary to a sleep-related medical disorder (e.g., sleep apnea, post-traumatic sleep disorders, etc.). (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
A disorder characterized by recurrent apneas during sleep despite persistent respiratory efforts. It is due to upper airway obstruction. The respiratory pauses may induce HYPERCAPNIA or HYPOXIA. Cardiac arrhythmias and elevation of systemic and pulmonary arterial pressures may occur. Frequent partial arousals occur throughout sleep, resulting in relative SLEEP DEPRIVATION and daytime tiredness. Associated conditions include OBESITY; ACROMEGALY; MYXEDEMA; micrognathia; MYOTONIC DYSTROPHY; adenotonsilar dystrophy; and NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p395)
Periods of sleep manifested by changes in EEG activity and certain behavioral correlates; includes Stage 1: sleep onset, drowsy sleep; Stage 2: light sleep; Stages 3 and 4: delta sleep, light sleep, deep sleep, telencephalic sleep.
