Computer Models of Airways in Children and Young Adults With Sleep Apnea and Down Syndrome

The purpose of this research study is to develop a way of predicting with computers how surgery on the airway will affect night time breathing called Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) in child...

Sleep is a fundamental need for human and is associated with the working performance and the disease occurrence. Furthermore, the amount of people with sleep disorder or apnea increased la...

Identification of Desaturation Episodes by Means of Continuous Measurement of Oxygen Saturation During Hemodialysis

The clinical diagnosis of sleep apnea is difficult among ESRD patients since the characteristic clinical features of sleep apnea may be absent and since sleep-related symptoms, such as fat...

Nutrients to Enhance Sleep Quality and Quantity

Identifying non-pharmacological means of enhancing sleep is an important area of research for elite athletes. Research completed at the AIS has identified that some athletes have difficult...

Sleep: Eye-Opener Highlights Sleep's Organization.

What can eyes tell us about what happens during sleep? Their movements split sleep into two distinct states - rapid-eye-movement (REM) or non-REM sleep. A new study now reveals that periodic pupil co...

Pre-sleep arousal can be associated with efficient processing of sleep-related information.

Cognitive bias to sleep-related information is thought to be a core feature of sleep disturbances. The bias may enhance pre-sleep arousal, such as excessive worry about sleeplessness, which prevents p...

Actigraphy data in pediatric research: the role of sleep diaries.

When assessing children's sleep using actigraphy, researchers usually rely on a sleep diary completed by a parent as an aid in scoring actigraphic data. However, parental nonadherence in completing th...

Melanin-Concentrating Hormone-expressing neurons adjust slow-wave sleep dynamics to catalyze paradoxical (REM) sleep.

Experimental studies over the last fifteen years established a role in sleep of the tuberal hypothalamic neurons that express melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH). Controversies still remain regarding ...

High Heritability of Adolescent Sleep-Wake Behavior on Free, but not School Days: A Long-Term Twin Study.

Adolescence development is characterized by significant changes in sleep biology. Despite an overall decline in sleep duration and a delay in bedtime, significant inter-individual variation in sleep h...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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)

Movements or behaviors associated with sleep, sleep stages, or partial arousals from sleep that may impair sleep maintenance. Parasomnias are generally divided into four groups: arousal disorders, sleep-wake transition disorders, parasomnias of REM sleep, and nonspecific parasomnias. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p191)

A sleep disorder of central nervous system origin characterized by prolonged nocturnal sleep and periods of daytime drowsiness. Affected individuals experience difficulty with awakening in the morning and may have associated sleep drunkenness, automatic behaviors, and memory disturbances. This condition differs from narcolepsy in that daytime sleep periods are longer, there is no association with CATAPLEXY, and the multiple sleep latency onset test does not record sleep-onset rapid eye movement sleep. (From Chokroverty, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, pp319-20; Psychiatry Clin Neurosci 1998 Apr:52(2):125-129)

Conditions characterized by disturbances of usual sleep patterns or behaviors. Sleep disorders may be divided into three major categories: DYSSOMNIAS (i.e. disorders characterized by insomnia or hypersomnia), PARASOMNIAS (abnormal sleep behaviors), and sleep disorders secondary to medical or psychiatric disorders. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
