Effect of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) on Lower Esophageal Sphincter Pressure in Morbidly Obese Patients

2014-07-23 21:09:36 | BioPortfolio

Summary

In patients undergoing weight loss surgery investigators plan to study the effect of continuous positive airway pressure during a esophageal manometry.

Description

Subjects will be invited to be in this research study because they are being considered for weight loss (bariatric) surgery. As part of the preparation for surgery, subjects will have a test called manometry that measures pressure in the esophagus (food pipe). For this test, a tube will be lowered down one nostril into the food pipe.

Studies have shown that Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) reduces reflux in people with or without sleep apnea as well as in people with reflux. The investigators are trying to understand how this occurs. This research study will add about 10 additional minutes to the clinic visit. The investigators expect about 50 subjects to be in the study at OHSU. Outcomes will be measured at 18 months.

Patients scheduled for esophageal manometry and motility studies prior to their bariatric surgery will be given a study flyer at the bariatric clinic. A list of the patients who are interested in participating in the study will be given to one of the study investigators. A study investigator will call these patients to explain the study, assess their interest in participation, and review their eligibility for entrance into the study. Assessment of eligibility will be done by asking for medical history over the phone as well as by requesting access to their medical record to ensure the patients do not meet exclusion criteria. After review of the patient's clinical history verbally and through review of the medical record, informed consent will be signed at their manometry appointment.

Subjects will undergo the manometry procedure. After finishing the procedure, when the catheter would normally be withdrawn after the procedure, it will remain in place for the study. A CPAP mask will be placed over the subject's nose. CPAP blows air in the nose with a mild pressure. The air pressure will be slowly increased while pressure in the esophagus is being recorded. As done with the regular manometry, the subject will be asked to swallow small amounts of water during the test. The test will be completed in 10 minutes. The CPAP and the tube will be removed.

Subjects will complete a questionnaire prior to the manometry about gastrointestinal symptoms.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

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.

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.
