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 respiratory disturbances confined primarily to REM sleep. The aim of the study was to define the frequency and the clinical and polysomnographic features of REM SDB in a large(More)
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-disordered breathing or cardiovascular diseases. Taking into account improvements in recording techniques and new criteria used to define respiratory events, we aimed to assess(More)
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 movements (PLMS) on heart rate variability (HRV) during NREM sleep in patients having restless legs syndrome and periodic leg movements during sleep. METHODS The(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Micro-arousals (MA) are commonly considered as sleep components reflecting sleep fragmentation. However, their elucidation is time-consuming, with considerable inter-observer variability. The aim of our study was to investigate the usefulness of a sleep fragmentation index (SFI) to detect sleep disruption in a large sample of(More)
The objective of the study is to evaluate changes in finger pulse wave amplitude (PWA), as measured by photoplethysmography, and heart rate (HR), related to obstructive respiratory events and associated arousals during sleep. We analyzed 1,431 respiratory events in NREM sleep from 12 patients according to (1) the type of event (apnea, hypopnea, upper airway(More)
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 has apparently considered the inter-night effect on PLM index during wakefulness and sleep in patients with Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS). Moreover, no study has(More)
Periodic limb movements during sleep (PLMS), frequently found in polysomnograms, are often accompanied by arousals. The relationship is not clear, however, because PLMS can occur before, after or simultaneous to the electromyographic (EMG) activation. We describe the case of a patient who presents PLMS during two of three consecutive recording nights, and(More)
BACKGROUND Diagnosis of sleep-disordered breathing requires overnight recordings, such as polygraphy or polysomnography. Considering the cost and low availability of these procedures, preselection of patients at high risk is recommended. We aimed to develop a screening tool allowing identification of individuals at risk of sleep-disordered breathing. (More)

OBJECTIVE To examine the association of socioeconomic status (SES) with subjective and objective sleep disturbances and the role of socio-demographic, behavioural and psychological factors in explaining this association. METHODS Analyses are based on 3391 participants (53% female, aged 40-81 years) of the follow-up of the CoLaus study (2009-2012), a(More)
