Esophageal pH has been studied at night in six healthy subjects. A pH electrode was placed 5 cm above the low esophageal sphincter and sleep state was monitored. The subjects were connected to the recording devices during two nights, but the recording was performed only during the second night. A pH drop superior to 2 units and lasting longer than 30 sec(More)
Evidence of relationship between gastrooesophageal reflux (GER) and obstructive apneas in some near-miss children, led us to investigate its possibility in adults. Our purpose was to look for 1) sleep stages of GER occurrence, and 2) the possible chronological link between sleep apneas and GER. Eight obese patients were investigated. Esophageal pHmetry was(More)
Four patients with restricted lobe lesions and one patient with large occipital lesions were selected for VEP studies to full-field and half-field flash pattern stimuli. The abnormalities of the responses were more important with full-field stimuli. In three patients with inner side occipital lobe damage, the P100 component disappeared ipsilaterally to the(More)
The sleep E.E.G. of the child under 3 years old is characteristic from several points of view: Drowsiness: The hypersynchrony is always observed. It is more continuous in younger children, than in the older one, where only bursts of hypersynchrony are seen. The fast rhythms of low amplitude may exist, during stage 2 sleep, but they are rare. Calm Sleep(More)
EEG sleep patterns were observed in 44 cases of cranial injuries examined within 24 hours of the traumatic incident. Young people were involved, as more than half of these cases were noted in patients under 15 years of age. Two main types of tracing were observed: EEG sleep pattern with slow waves were seen mainly in children; but sleep patterns of low(More)
