To assess the effects of weight loss on sleep disordered breathing in obese, Type 2 diabetics with obstructive sleep apnea.
The prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea is high in the Veteran population. If not treated promptly, sleep apnea may result in daytime fatigue which may lead to increased prevalence of accidents while driving or in the workplace. Recent large scale epidemiological studies have shown that the prevalence of excessive daytime sleepiness increases in individuals who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea may also result in the development of hypertension and ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether patients with obstructive sleep apnea have any changes in left atrial morphology and function evaluated by echocardiography three dimensional
To determine whether objectively recorded sleep durations were mortality risk factors, whether sleep duration could be distinguished from depression as a risk factor in Women's Health Initiative (WHI) data, and whether sleep-associated risks were attributable to specific pathophysiologic processes such as sleep apnea, circadian rhythm phase advances, or deficiencies of melatonin, or deficiencies of reproductive steroids. The study was ancillary to the WHI.
The study aims to develop and test a user-friendly, accessible approach to sleep assessment which can function as an initial "triage" of targeted sleep conditions, such as insomnia, insufficient sleep syndrome, sleep apnea syndromes/snoring, and circadian sleep/wake disorders, within the clinical and community population. Specifically, this study will test the validity and reliability of a self-rated, digitized, and cost-effective diagnostic measure with sufficient sensitivity ...
The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of different methods of providing education about sleep apnea and continuous positive airway pressure therapy (CPAP) use and how that education might help to improve health outcomes and the amount of time CPAP is used.
Sleep apnea is common in acromegaly and both diseases are independently associated with hypertension and insulin resistance contributing to increased morbidity and mortality. Respiratory polygraphy is a simpler alternative to in-laboratory polysomnography for the management of more symptomatic patients with obstructive sleep apnea. The aim of this study is to evaluate the prevalence of sleep apnea by respiratory polygraphy, and to analyze the effect of transsphenoidal surgery ...
Sleep apnea is a prevalent disorder in patients with coronary artery disease. Previous studies suggested sleep apnea was associated with coronary plaque burden and future adverse cardiovascular events. Sleep apnea is also associated with a high incidence of atrial fibrillation in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting. Yet, previous reports used Berlin Questionnaire and Epworth Sleepiness Scale Questionnaire to diagnose sleep apnea. However, these screening questio...
This is a research study of asthma and sleep apnea. Our hypothesis is that untreated sleep apnea causes inflammation in the lung, which can worsen asthma. We believe treatment of sleep apnea will reduce this inflammation, and improve asthma control. This study will help us better understand what happens to the lung and bronchial tubes before and after treatment of sleep apnea, which could benefit all patients with sleep apnea. This study involves 2 bronchoscopies.
The purpose of this study was to determine how effective a custom-made standard dental splint (activator) advancing the lower jaw forward is in treatment of obstructive sleep apnea, and further to find factors for identification of those patients likely to benefit from this treatment.
To examine the relationship between obstructive sleep apnea and lipid metabolism.
Sleep studies in ESRD patients have identified increased prevalence of Sleep Apnea. Based on current knowledge, treatment aimed at reducing oxidative stress might improve Sleep Apnea in HD patients. The aim of our study is to investigate the effect of N-acetylsysteine on Sleep Apnea in HD patients.
This study is being done to see if treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with a mandibular advancement device (MAD) shows an increase in the quality of life. Many patients prefer to call them mandibular advancers, jaw advancers, jaw advancement splints, jaw advancement devices, anti-snoring mouthpieces, or oral appliances for the treatment of snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. The investigators will also see how helpful the mandibular advancement devic...
There is some evidence for a hypercoagulable state in sleep apnea-hipopnea syndrome (SAHS), which could play a role in the increased cardiovascular morbility and mortality. Respiratory alterations (hypoxia, hypoxia- reoxygenation) and sleep fragmentation that these patients suffer during the sleep may induce modifications in clotting-fibrinolisis factors that may be a risk factor for venous thromboembolism (VTE). OBJECTIVES:To calculate and compare the prevalence of sleep apne...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate effects from a mandibular repositioning appliance on obstructive sleep apneas, symptoms, blood pressure and markers of stress, inflammation and cardiovascular health in patients with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome and in patients with symptomatic snoring.
The objective of the study is to confirm the safety and efficacy in patients utilizing the aura6000 System for the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs in 2-4% of middle age adults and results in significant morbidity and mortality. The first line therapy is provision of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) via a nasal mask chronically. Nasal resistance related to nasal turbinate enlargement may compromise CPAP treatment. This randomized double-blind sham-placebo-controlled trial tests the hypothesis that nasal turbinate reduction improves the nasal passage, CPAP use, and sleep apnea qua...
Study of the Efficacy of the Treatment of Sleep Apnea Syndrome by CPAP in Pharmacoresistant Epilepsy. The primary goal is to evaluate the efficacity after 3 months of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome treatment by CPAP on the epilepsy seizures frequency.
Sleep apnea is a prevalent problem and references for the evaluation of this condition often exceeds the sleep clinic's capacity thus creating important delays in the patients' care. The overall goal of this project is to assess the feasibility and the non-inferiority of integrating a clinical nurse, or supernurse, to the initial consultation team. The hypothesis is that the integration of a clinical nurse to the sleep clinic's evaluation team is non inferior in terms of pati...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether ambulatory polygraphy during a short hospitalization in a neurology unit has the same performance than inpatient polysomnography, the actual gold standard, in the diagnosis of sleep apnea in patients suffering from multiple system atrophy (MSA).
This study aims at quantifying the performance of kinesthetic stimulation to reduce the burden of obstructive sleep apneas and hypopneas.
Sleep apnea is common among veterans with cerebrovascular disease (stroke or transient ischemic attack [TIA]), leads to hypertension, and is associated with recurrent stroke and death. Although continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) safely treats sleep apnea, few veterans with cerebrovascular disease are diagnosed with sleep apnea or offered treatment.
The purpose of this post-market observational study is to assess the effectiveness and patient perception of benefit of the ReVENT Sleep Apnea System in patients diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea due to primary tongue base closure. The ReVENT Sleep Apnea System is a minimally invasive surgical approach to treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea. The ReVENT Sleep Apnea System consists of an implanter kit and tongue implants. The implants are permanently implanted in the tongue during...
Obstructive sleep apnea is a risk factor for diabetes and cardiovascular disease, by unknown mechanisms. The investigators hypothesize that sleep apnea changes glucose and lipid metabolism during sleep, which over time could lead to diabetes and cardiovascular disease. This study examines metabolic changes during sleep in patients with obstructive sleep apnea. Patients accustomed to CPAP therapy are enrolled to undergo sleep studies, either on CPAP therapy or after withdrawing ...
Studies show that sleep apnea increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and is associated with obesity. However, it is unclear how sleep apnea affects fat tissue. Studies have shown that fat tissue is likely involved in developing cardiovascular disease. The purpose of this study is to see how sleep apnea changes fat tissue.
