Diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and its outcomes with home portable monitoring.
TLDR
Evaluating the accuracy of PM performed at home to diagnose OSAS and its outcomes after first validating PM in the laboratory setting by comparing it to polysomnography (PSG) revealed comparable diagnostic ability.
Comparative Study between Sequential Automatic and Manual Home Respiratory Polygraphy Scoring Using a Three-Channel Device: Impact of the Manual Editing of Events to Identify Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea
TLDR
Good agreement between automatic scoring and sequential manual scoring to identify patients with suspected OSA and subjects with AHI ≥ 30 eV/h is observed.
Clinical and polysomnographic differences between OSAH patients with/without excessive daytime sleepiness
TLDR
Patients with OSAH and ESD showed more hypoxemia, but it was found that the latter had a larger neck circumference, maximum O2 desaturation, and increased sleep time at <90 % O2 saturation, with significant statistical differences.
Using a generic measure of quality of life in patients with obstructive sleep apnea
TLDR
The MQLI has limitations in identifying quality of life (QOL) alterations and a poor correlation with severity in OSAH patients and is recommended to supplementing the QOL evaluation with disease-specific instruments.
Use of Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring for the Screening of Obstructive Sleep Apnea
TLDR
The best model that combined the ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM), anthropometric, sociodemographic, and biological variables to identify moderate to severe OSA was defined and a validated scoring system was developed to identify patients with an apnea‐hypopnea index ≥15.
Prevalence of sleep-disordered breathing in truck drivers at a mine located at high altitude
TLDR
A high prevalence of sleep-disordered breathing was observed in Peruvian truck drivers working at high altitudes and the automatic versus manual scoring system of a respiratory polygraph test was validated, and no predictive variables for an abnormal study were identified.
Computer-Assisted Diagnosis of the Sleep Apnea-Hypopnea Syndrome: A Review
TLDR
A literature review within the area of computer-assisted diagnosis of SAHS has been performed comprising the last 15 years of research in the field, presenting an overview of the different methods and critical discussion of the current state of the art.
The expression of vascular endothelial growth factor in skeletal muscle of patients with sleep disorders
TLDR
The study shows the occurrence of proliferation of endothelial cells in skeletal muscle in RLS and OSAS, supporting an upregulation of VEGF located in capillaries, probably due to local hypoxia.
[Sleep monitoring in bus and truck drivers: relevant factor to consider for the renewal of the driving license].
TLDR
In patients using the therapy thoroughly, the results are very good and achieve to control the sleepiness, improve the quality of life of the affected subject, protect his health and markedly decrease the risk of accidents due to sleepiness during driving.
Skeletal muscle in Restless legs syndrome (RLS) and Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS)
Restless legs syndrome (RLS) and Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) are two sleep disorders that affect daily life with symptoms such as sleepiness and fatigue. It was therefore hypothesised ...

Comparison of a cardiorespiratory device versus polysomnography for diagnosis of sleep apnoea
TLDR
The results obtained with manual scoring were superior to automatic scoring for all AHI thresholds, and the MERLIN device is a useful diagnostic approach for the initial assessment of adult patients with clinical suspicion of sleep apnoea/hypopnoeas syndrome.
Comparison of partially attended night time respiratory recordings and full polysomnography in patients with suspected sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome.
TLDR
NTRR is a helpful and easy complementary diagnostic tool in clinical practice because it detects patients with moderate to severe SAHS reasonably well and therefore can be useful for confirming a diagnosis of SAHS and also for treatment decisions.
Diagnostic accuracy of a portable recording device (MESAM IV) in suspected obstructive sleep apnoea.
TLDR
The combination of MESAM IV manual scores could reduce the need for diagnostic polysomnography in three quarters of the patients clinically suspected of having obstructive sleep apnoea, substantially reducing costs associated with diagnostic procedures.
Home sleep studies in the assessment of sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome.
TLDR
Home sleep studies are a viable form of diagnosing sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome, and are less expensive than polysomnography, and to assess its impact on costs.
Systematic review and meta-analysis of the literature regarding the diagnosis of sleep apnea.
TLDR
The sensitivity and specificity of partial channel and partial time PSGs appeared most promising as replacements for full PSG in patients suspected of obstructive SA, and clinical prediction rules (multivariate models) were also promising.
PROSPECTIVE STUDY OF THE ASSOCIATION BETWEEN SLEEP-DISORDERED BREATHING AND HYPERTENSION
TLDR
It is suggested that sleep-disordered breathing is likely to be a risk factor for hypertension and consequent cardiovascular morbidity in the general population.
The occurrence of sleep-disordered breathing among middle-aged adults.
TLDR
The prevalence of undiagnosed sleep-disordered breathing is high among men and is much higher than previously suspected among women, and is associated with daytime hypersomnolence.
What is hypopnea, anyway?
TLDR
There is no consensus about either recording techniques or definitions of hypopnea in clinical sleep laboratories, and epidemiologic studies and reports of interventions on SDB that do not include precise definitions ofHypopnea must be interpreted with caution.
Estimation of the clinically diagnosed proportion of sleep apnea syndrome in middle-aged men and women.
TLDR
It is estimated that 93% of women and 82% of men with moderate to severe SAS have not been clinically diagnosed and these findings provide a baseline for assessing health care resource needs for sleep apnea.
The association of sleep-disordered breathing and sleep symptoms with quality of life in the Sleep Heart Health Study.
TLDR
This study assessed the extent to which sleep-disordered breathing, difficulty initiating and maintaining sleep (DIMS), and excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) were associated with impairment of quality of life (QoL) using the SF-36 to suggest mild to moderate SDB is associated with reduced vitality, while severeSDB is more broadly associated with poorer QoL.
