PurposeTo access the effect of propofol administration on sleep quality in critically ill patients ventilated on assisted modes.MethodsThis was a randomized crossover physiological study conducted in an adult ICU at a tertiary hospital. Two nights’ polysomnography was performed in mechanically ventilated critically ill patients with and without propofol infusion, while respiratory variables were continuously recorded. Arterial blood gasses were measured in the beginning and at the end of the… 
Effects of deep sedation on sleep in critically ill medical patients on mechanical ventilation
TLDR
Propofol was associated with higher sleep duration and less disrupted sleep architecture compared to fentanyl, propofol and fentanyl, or no sedation, and Sedated patients on mechanical ventilation had higher sleep efficiency and more atypia compared to the same patients following extubation.
Impact of sleep alterations on weaning duration in mechanically ventilated patients: a prospective study
TLDR
It is suggested for the first time that brain dysfunction may have an influence on the ability to breathe spontaneously in intensive care unit patients under mechanical ventilation with altered sleep.
Patient–ventilator synchrony and sleep quality with proportional assist and pressure support ventilation
TLDR
PAV+ failed to improve sleep in mechanically ventilated patients despite the fact that this mode was associated with better synchrony between the patient and ventilator, and the hypothesis that patient–ventilator synchrony plays a central role in determining sleep quality in this group of patients is not supported.
Effects of Sedatives on Sleep Architecture Measured With Odds Ratio Product in Critically Ill Patients
TLDR
In stable critically ill unsedated patients, sleep quality is poor with frequent wake intrusions and little stable sleep, a validated continuous metric of sleep depth that does not rely on the features needed for conventional staging.
Sleep Architecture in Mechanically Ventilated Pediatric ICU Patients Receiving Goal-Directed, Dexmedetomidine- and Opioid-based Sedation.
TLDR
Children receiving targeted, opioid-, and dexmedetomidine-based sedation to facilitate mechanical ventilation for acute respiratory failure have substantial sleep disruption and abnormal sleep architecture, achieving little to no REM sleep.
Positive and negative effects of mechanical ventilation on sleep in the ICU: a review with clinical recommendations
TLDR
The specific aspects of sleep in critically ill mechanically ventilated patients, including abnormal sleep patterns and loss of circadian rhythm, as well as the effects of mechanical ventilation and intravenous sedatives on sleep quality and quantity are reviewed.
Effects of Noninvasive Versus Invasive Mechanical Ventilation on Sleep in the Intensive Care Unit – A Pilot Study
TLDR
NIV in critically ill patients was associated with poorer quality and quantity of sleep, and future studies should determine whether adjustments in ventilator settings, mask type or fit, or use of sedation/analgaesia can improve sleep in patients receiving NIV.
Sleep and Mechanical Ventilation in Critically Ill Patients
TLDR
This chapter will summarize the current knowledge about this important but largely ignored issue of mechanical ventilation in critically ill patients and indicate that carefully chosen ventilator modes and titration of ventilators may have an impact on sleep quality in these patients.
Effects of Dexmedetomidine on Sleep Quality in Critically Ill Patients: A Pilot Study
TLDR
In highly selected critically ill patients, dexmedetomidine infusion during the night to achieve light sedation improves sleep by increasing sleep efficiency and stage 2 and modifies the 24-h sleep pattern by shifting sleep mainly to the night.
Role of sleep on respiratory failure after extubation in the ICU
TLDR
Sleep assessment by polysomnography after extubation showed a dramatically low total, deep and REM sleep time, which did not differ between patients who were successfully extubated and those who developed post-extubation respiratory failure or required reintubation.

Effect of ventilator mode on sleep quality in critically ill patients.
TLDR
In conclusion, inspiratory assistance from pressure support causes hypocapnia, which combined with the lack of a backup rate and wakefulness drive can lead to central apneas and sleep fragmentation, especially in patients with heart failure.
Sleep in critically ill patients requiring mechanical ventilation.
TLDR
Sleep, as it is conventionally measured, was identified only in a subgroup of critically ill patients requiring mechanical ventilation and was severely disrupted.
Patient-ventilator interaction and sleep in mechanically ventilated patients: Pressure support versus proportional assist ventilation*
TLDR
Proportional assist ventilation seems more efficacious than pressure support ventilation in matching ventilatory requirements with ventilator assistance, therefore resulting in fewer patient-ventilator asynchronies and better quality of sleep.
Sedation of critically ill patients during mechanical ventilation. A comparison of propofol and midazolam.
TLDR
P had a faster, more reliable, wake-up time; assessments of time-to-awaken were objective and reproducible; time to sedation was not significantly different; V O2 decreased similarly with both.
A new classification for sleep analysis in critically ill patients.
Sleep during proportional-assist ventilation with load-adjustable gain factors in critically ill patients
TLDR
In patients exhibiting good patient–ventilator synchrony during PS, the large number of short-term end-inspiratory occlusions with PAV+ operation did not adversely influence sleep quality, although with both modes high assist may cause unstable breathing during sleep.
Effect of propofol on breathing stability in adult ICU patients with brain damage
Monitoring sedation status over time in ICU patients: reliability and validity of the Richmond Agitation-Sedation Scale (RASS).
TLDR
This is the first sedation scale to be validated for its ability to detect changes in sedation status over consecutive days of ICU care, against constructs of level of consciousness and delirium, and correlated with the administered dose of sedative and analgesic medications.
Prolonged Sedation with Propofol in the Rat Does Not Result in Sleep Deprivation
TLDR
It is suggested that sedation is associated with a restorative process reversing the na-tural accumulation of sleep need that occurs during wakefulness, and sleep deprivation is not observed on emergence from sedation.
Contribution of the intensive care unit environment to sleep disruption in mechanically ventilated patients and healthy subjects.
TLDR
The data indicate that noise and patient-care activities account for less than 30% of arousals and awakenings and suggest that other elements of the critically ill patient's environment or treatment should be investigated in the pathogenesis of ICU sleep disruption.
