STUDY OBJECTIVES To compare the frequency of daytime and nocturnal cardiac arrhythmias and ST-segment depression episodes among patients with obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS), snoring subjects, and healthy subjects, and to analyze the relationship between the cardiac disturbances, sleep characteristics, and sympathetic tone in patients with(More)
We assess the prognosis of mild forms of myasthenia gravis (MG) by maximal respiratory pressures (MRP) and single fiber electromyography (SFEMG). Fifty MG patients (12 form I, 21 form IIa and 17 form IIb) are valued by MRP [maximal expiratory pressure (MEP) and maximal inspiratory pressure (MIP)] and SFEMG, and are followed-up clinically. We have found in(More)
OBJECTIVES The respiratory muscle weakness was evaluated in mild forms of myasthenia gravis (MG) and was compared with single fiber electromyography results (SFEMG) in the extensor digitorum communis muscle. MATERIAL AND METHODS We assessed 61 treated MG patients without clinical respiratory involvement (13 ocular forms, 28 form IIa and 20 form IIb(More)
In myasthenia gravis (MG) the status of respiratory function has a paramount importance and a careful evaluation is recommended. The weakness of respiratory muscles has been demonstrated in several studies. However, a reliable simple method for the evaluation of this muscular group was lacking until recently, when the usefulness of the maximum respiratory(More)
