STUDY OBJECTIVES To evaluate the validity of a novel method of using tracheal sound analysis for the diagnosis of sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome. DESIGN Retrospective analysis in consecutive patients. SETTING A sleep clinic in a general hospital. PATIENTS A total of 383 patients who were referred for suspected sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome and(More)
Overnight oximetry is widely used for screening for the sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (SAHS). The degree of desaturation at an apnea event is known to be affected by the degree of obesity. We hypothesized that the diagnostic ability of oximetry for SAHS is affected by the degree of obesity. A total of 424 consecutive patients referred for possible SAHS were(More)
BACKGROUND We have previously reported that dietary ketogenic amino acids (KAAs) modulate hepatic de novo lipogenesis (DNL) and prevent hepatic steatosis in mice. However, the dependence of the metabolic phenotypes generated by KAA on the type of dietary lipid source remains unclear. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the effect of KAA combined(More)
IN-LABORATORY FULL POLYSOMNOGRAPHY (PSG) WITH MANUAL ANALYSIS IS CONSIDERED TO BE THE GOLD STANDARD FOR THE DIAGNOSIS OF SLEEP APNEA-HYPOPNEA SYNDROME (SAHS).1 However the procedure is labor intensive and time consuming, and the capacity for PSG is limited considering the high prevalence of SAHS.2 Many portable recording devices intended to assess SAHS have(More)
