In normal organisms sleep is usually a time of minimal stress. In many obese patients, sleep could be stressful, impairs the quality of daytime life, and distorts normal physiology of the body suffi- ciently to even cause death. The more prevalent sleep disorders in obese subjects are abnormali- ties in the respiratory function such as snoring, obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) and alveolar hypoventilation or a combination of these. Ninety eight percent of the morbidly obese patients… 
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) should be considered a comorbidity as a risk factor for COVID-19 fatality: A review. Part II
Comorbidities such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) that have a high prevalence in older adults with obesity, should be considered as an additional risk factor for fatality, due to endothelial dysfunction secondary to hypoxia coupled with an increase in the inflammatory cascade with dysfunction of the glymphatic system during sleep in response to SARS-CoV-2.
Development and validation of a questionnaire to identify patients with sleep apnea in Mexican population Mexican questionnaire to identify sleep apnea
Purpose To develop and validate a questionnaire to identify patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in Mexican population. Methods We performed a cross-sectional study to develop and validate an
Development and validation of a questionnaire to identify patients with sleep apnea in Mexican population
The screening tool proposed in this study has the advantages of being quick, inexpensive, easy to apply and reproducible, and the result has reliability with acceptable sensitivity; this is a symptom-based questionnaire with good predictive ability and it will avoid unnecessary sleep studies in the subjects who are not at high risk for having OSA.
Neurological disease and behavioral changes in the human being
Background: The spectrum of lissencephaly (LIS) corresponds to a group of serious brain malformations in the cortex caused by a failure in neuronal migration. The spectrum includes agyria, pachygyria
Relación existente entre la severidad del síndrome de apnea obstructiva del sueño, el índice de masa corporal y el tamaño amigdalino
El Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Medicas and Nutricion Salvador Zubiran afirma that 98% of los pacientes obesos morbidos padecen sindrome de apnea obstructiva del sueno y que como factor para padecer this sindroma se encuentra the obesidad.
Síndrome de apnea hipopnea obstructiva del sueño: correlación diagnóstica entre el primer y segundo nivel de atención médica
De acuerdo with los resultados obtenidos en this estudio se puede concluir that the obesidad influye como un factor de riesgo en the presencia of sahos.


Prevalence of sleep apnea and electrocardiographic disturbances in morbidly obese patients.
There is a high prevalence ofSleep apnea in morbidly obese patients and the risk for cardiac arrhythmias increases in this population in the presence of a severe sleep apnea with severe oxygen desaturation with SaO2 < or = 65.
Undiagnosed sleep apnea in patients with essential hypertension.
Undiagnosed sleep apnea syndrome may be associated with systemic hypertension in many middle- and older-aged men and could be the cause of hypertension, and in others it may contribute to hypertension of another cause.
Heavy Snorers Disease
Heavy Snorers Disease (HSD), however, is a term which better emphasizes the concept that snoring and obstructive apneas represent just the end-points of the same process.
Pulmonary Hemodynamics in the Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome: Results in 220 Consecutive Patients
In conclusion, PH is observed, in agreement with previous studies, in less than 20% of OSAS patients and is strongly linked to the presence of an obstructive (rather than restrictive) ventilatory pattern, hypoxemia, and hypercapnia.
Sleep apnea and cardiac arrhythmias. Is there a relationship?
The prevalence of cardiac arrh rhythmias is low in patients without serious cardiac or respiratory comorbidity who are referred for assessment of sleep apnea, and the presence or absence of arrhythmias in this group is unrelated toSleep apnea severity.
Oxyhemoglobin saturation during sleep in subjects with and without the obesity-hypoventilation syndrome.
Subjects with OHS had significantly greater oxyhemoglobin desaturation during sleep than subjects without OHS, even when subjects with andWithout OHS were matched for sex and weight, consistent with the hypothesis that severe sleep apnea is a contributing cause of OHS.
Treatment of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome with nasal continuous positive airway pressure.
It is concluded that n-CPAP is a highly effective means of preventing upper airway occlusion in OSAS and, except for some patients with coexisting lung disease, it totally reverses the accompanying gas exchange disturbance.
Clinical features and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea.
This common, readily treatable disorder is associated with serious complications and therefore must be widely recognized by health professionals.
Relationship of ventricular ectopy to oxyhemoglobin desaturation in patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
It is concluded that patients with obstructive sleep apnea are at relatively low risk of developing ventricular arrhythmias providedSaO2 remains greater than 60 percent, while those with SaO2 below 60 percent are at increased risk and should be managed accordingly.
Pulmonary hypertension and hypoxemia in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.
It is concluded that lung disease is not a prerequisite for PH in OSAS and the hypoxemia in PH patients could not be explained by impairment of lung function, greater body mass, or a higher prevalence of smoking.
