Adaptive Servo-Ventilation for Central Sleep Apnea in Systolic Heart Failure.
BACKGROUND Central sleep apnea is associated with poor prognosis and death in patients with heart failure. Adaptive servo-ventilation is a therapy that uses a noninvasive ventilator to treat centralExpand

Sleep‐disordered breathing in patients with symptomatic heart failure A contemporary study of prevalence in and characteristics of 700 patients
Evaluation of the prevalence and nature of sleep‐disordered breathing (SDB) in patients with symptomatic chronic heart failure (CHF) receiving therapy according to current guidelines.

Adaptive pressure support servo-ventilation: a novel treatment for Cheyne-Stokes respiration in heart failure.
Adaptive servo-ventilation (ASV) is a novel method of ventilatory support designed for Cheyne-Stokes respiration (CSR) in heart failure. The aim of our study was to compare the effect of one night ofExpand

A novel extracorporeal CO(2) removal system: results of a pilot study of hypercapnic respiratory failure in patients with COPD.
BACKGROUND Hypercapnic respiratory failure in patients with COPD frequently requires mechanical ventilatory support. Extracorporeal CO2 removal (ECCO2R) techniques have not been systematicallyExpand

Automated continuous positive airway pressure titration for obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.
This study tested the effectiveness of the AutoSet self-titrating nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP) system in treating obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and choosing a suitable pressureExpand

Immunological functions of the pulmonary epithelium.
The mature pulmonary epithelium forms a continuous lining to the airspace. Recent data suggest that this specialized epithelium may also contribute to host defence via interactions with inflammatoryExpand

Sleep-disordered breathing and respiratory failure in acid maltase deficiency
Background: Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) and respiratory failure (RF) are complications of acid maltase deficiency (AMD), a rare hereditary myopathy. Objective: To define the relationship betweenExpand

Rationale and design of the SERVE-HF study: treatment of sleep-disordered breathing with predominant central sleep apnoea with adaptive servo-ventilation in patients with chronic heart failure
Central sleep apnoea/Cheyne–Stokes respiration (CSA/CSR) is a risk factor for increased mortality and morbidity in heart failure (HF). Adaptive servo‐ventilation (ASV) is a non‐invasive ventilationExpand

Two months auto-adjusting versus conventional nCPAP for obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome.
Autoadjusting nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) greatly reduces the apnoea/hypopnoea index (AHI), and affords a significant reduction in median pressure (P50) compared-with manuallyExpand
