This research presents a novel and simple method called “spot-based, 3D image analysis” that allows for real-time monitoring of the progression of disease in the airways.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea Among Obese Patients With Type 2 Diabetes
Physicians should be particularly cognizant of the likelihood of OSA in obese patients with type 2 diabetes, especially among individuals with higher waist circumference and BMI.
A randomized study on the effect of weight loss on obstructive sleep apnea among obese patients with type 2 diabetes: the Sleep AHEAD study.
At 1 year, more than 3 times as many participants in the ILI group than in the DSE group had total remission of their OSA, and the prevalence of severe OSA among ILI participants was half that of the D SE group.

Hypersomnia is common in adults with brain injuries, with a relatively high prevalence of sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome, periodic limb movement disorder, and posttraumatic hypersomnia.
Neural network analysis of sleep stages enables efficient diagnosis of narcolepsy
A neural network analysis method for polysomnography that could reduce time spent in sleep clinics and automate narcolepsy diagnosis is introduced, producing a hypnodensity graph—a probability distribution conveying more information than classical hypnograms.
Cognitive impairment in patients with traumatic brain injury and obstructive sleep apnea.

Investigating whether treatment with continuous positive airway pressure treatment improves the functional outcome of sleepy patients with mild and moderate obstructive sleep apnea found that it does.
Symptoms of insomnia among patients with obstructive sleep apnea before and after two years of positive airway pressure treatment.
Positive airway pressure treatment significantly reduced symptoms of middle insomnia and targeted treatment for insomnia may be beneficial for patients with obstructive sleep apnea comorbid with insomnia and has the potential to positively affect adherence to positiveAirway pressure.
