Prevalence of sleep-disordered breathing in the general population: the HypnoLaus study.
BACKGROUND Sleep-disordered breathing is associated with major morbidity and mortality. However, its prevalence has mainly been selectively studied in populations at risk for sleep-disorderedExpand

The NoSAS score for screening of sleep-disordered breathing: a derivation and validation study.
BACKGROUND Diagnosis of sleep-disordered breathing requires overnight recordings, such as polygraphy or polysomnography. Considering the cost and low availability of these procedures, preselection ofExpand

Rapid eye movement-related disordered breathing: clinical and polysomnographic features.
OBJECTIVE The existence of a rapid eye movement (REM)-specific sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) has been suggested based on the finding of an association between sleepiness and respiratoryExpand

Cardiovascular variability during periodic leg movements: a spectral analysis approach
OBJECTIVE Changes in cardiovascular measures have been advocated as sensitive markers of phasic events arising from sleep. The current study was aimed to analyse the effects of periodic leg movementsExpand

Prevalence and determinants of periodic limb movements in the general population
Periodic limb movements during sleep (PLMS) are sleep phenomena characterized by periodic episodes of repetitive stereotyped limb movements. The aim of this study was to describe the prevalence andExpand

DQB1 locus alone explains most of the risk and protection in narcolepsy with cataplexy in Europe.
STUDY OBJECTIVE Prior research has identified five common genetic variants associated with narcolepsy with cataplexy in Caucasian patients. To replicate and/or extend these findings, we have testedExpand

Night-to-night variability in periodic leg movements in patients with restless legs syndrome.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Although a night-to-night variability in periodic leg movements (PLM) occurrence has been described in patients with primary PLM disorder and sleep apnea syndrome, no study hasExpand

Performance vigilance task and sleepiness in patients with sleep-disordered breathing
Altered vigilance performance has been documented in patients with sleep-related breathing disorders (SRBDs). Sleep fragmentation, sleepiness, respiratory disturbances and nocturnal hypoxaemia haveExpand

An alternative measure of sleep fragmentation in clinical practice: the sleep fragmentation index.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Micro-arousals (MA) are commonly considered as sleep components reflecting sleep fragmentation. However, their elucidation is time-consuming, with considerable inter-observerExpand
