Effect of Montelukast Therapy in Obstructive Sleep Apnea(OSA) Children

2014-07-23 21:11:28 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigators leading hypotheses are:

- Oral therapy with montelukast may lead to improved sleep study findings in children with mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS) who require surgical removal of adenoids and tonsils for OSAS.

- A significant proportion of the children with OSAS treated with montelukast will show reduced severity of OSAS, and this will remove the need for surgical intervention.

Montelukast and Inhaled Nasal Steroid Tx in Adult Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)

In children with mild apnea combined therapy with an inhaled nasal steroid and a medication that decreased nasal congestion (montelukast) was shown to be effective. We are testing to see ...

Controlled Trial on Effect of Montelukast Treatment in Children With Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome

Oral therapy with montelukast may lead to improved polysomnographic findings in children with mild to moderate OSAS with and without allergic rhinitis who a priori require T&A for OSAS. ...

Cardiovascular Variability and Heart Rate Response Associated With Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea is often associated with microarousals and a stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system. The knowledge of this autonomic activation may help understanding the in...

Implication of mixed sleep apnea events in adult patients with obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome.

Although mixed sleep apnea (MSA) is one of the three types of sleep apnea, it is not considered a separate disease entity. It is generally seen as a part of obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (...

Differences between manual and automatic analysis in determining the severity of obstructive sleep apnea using home sleep apnea testing.

Home sleep apnea testing (HSAT) is a diagnostic measure for obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) in moderate/high risk patients. Some HSAT companies contain automatic analysis (AA). Howev...

Can STOP-Bang and Pulse Oximetry Detect and Exclude Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is related to postoperative complications and is a common disorder. Most patients with sleep apnea are, however, undiagnosed, and there is a need for simple screening too...

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)

HYPOVENTILATION syndrome in very obese persons with excessive ADIPOSE TISSUE around the ABDOMEN and DIAPHRAGM. It is characterized by diminished to absent ventilatory chemoresponsiveness; chronic HYPOXIA; HYPERCAPNIA; POLYCYTHEMIA; and long periods of sleep during day and night (HYPERSOMNOLENCE). It is a condition often related to OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA but can occur separately.
