OBJECTIVE Responsible for sleep brain perfusion changes, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) constitutes a cardiovascular risk. To find out about any diffuse damage to the brain tissue, we studied the S100B protein, whose serum level is known to rise in stroke and craniocerebral trauma. METHODS 60 men (mean age 51.7+/-11.8 years) referred to us for OSA without(More)
BACKGROUND Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a condition contributing to oxidative stress. The aim of this study was to ascertain if there is any connection between OSA and novel oxidative stress-related markers. Matrix metalloproteinases 2 and 9 (MMP-2, MMP-9), high sensitive C-reactive protein (hsCRP), pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A (PAPP-A),(More)
Mental retardation (MR) is a frequent manifestation in patients referred to departments of medical genetics (OLG). At the OLG in Martin their number in the years 1981-1985 was 324, i.e. 21.22% of the total number of examined subjects. MR was found as one of the pathological symptoms (symptomatic MR) in 86.73% and as the only pathological manifestation(More)
Background: The best method for titration of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) syndrome has not yet been established. The 90th or 95th percentiles of the pressure titrated over time by automatic CPAP (A-CPAP) have been recommended as reference for prescribing therapeutic fixed CPAP (F-CPAP). We compared(More)
