ZusammenfassungZiel unserer Studie war es, den nächtlichen Kollaps mit Zurückfallen der Zungenweichteile in den Hypopharynx durch ein tagsüber durchgeführtes Training der suprahyoidalen Muskulatur mittels Elektrostimulation zu verhindern. Um eine bessere Rekrutierung der Muskulatur bei geringeren Stromstärken zu ermöglichen, erfolgte eine extra-und intraorale Plazierung der Elektroden. Zunächst stimulierten wir gesunde Probanden und beobachteten eine deutliche Kraftzunahme von 2,3 N auf 4,0 N… 
Zungenmuskeltraining durch Elektrostimulation in der Therapie des obstruktiven Schlafapnoesyndroms
The question of whether tongue muscle training improves OSAS is addressed, measured by the number of responders, as compared to placebo, and compliance is not as good as might be expected.
Stellenwert der Nicht-nCPAP-Verfahren in der Therapie des obstruktiven Schlafapnoe-Syndroms
Ein Grosteil der Patienten mit einem obstruktiven Schlafapnoe-Syndrom sucht nach konservativen oder operativen Behandlungsverfahren mit deren Hilfe sie die kontinuierliche Positivdruckatmung (CPAP) vermeiden konnen, wenn hier noch weitere Daten notig sind.
Non-CPAP therapies in obstructive sleep apnoea
Evidence supports the use of mandibular advancement devices in mild to moderate OSAS and Maxillomandibular osteotomy seems to be as efficient as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) in patients who refuse conservative treatment.
Electrical Stimulation of the Upper Airways Muscles
The upper airway muscles are importantly affected in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). The most important dilator, the genioglossus, shows augmented activity during wakefulness which decreases
Tongue-muscle training by intraoral electrical neurostimulation in patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
Tongue-muscle training by electrical neurostimulation of the upper-airway muscles as an alternative therapy option for obstructive sleep apnea syndrome has proven to be effective in the treatment of snoring.
Results of electromyostimulation therapy in obstructive sleep apnea.
Opposed to established stimulation techniques, a threefold effectiveness enhancement could be verified by using both individually adaptable electrodes for electromyostimulation (EMS) therapy in patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
Тренировка мышц языка у пациентов с синдромом обструктивного апноэ сна, для лечения которых применяется назальная СИПАП терапия
Обструктивный синдромом апноэ сна (ОСАС) — это повторяющиеся остановки дыхания длительностью более 10 секунд или повышенные затруднения при дыха6 нии, которые вызваны полной или час6 тичной


Die ambulante, ganzheitliche, verhaltenstherapeutisch orientierte Gewichtsreduktion (Optifast ®-Programm) Eine alternative Therapie beim obstruktiven Schlafapnoesyndrom
The therapeutic effect of marked body weight reduction on the predominantly obstructive sleep apnea syndrome was investigated by the application of an out-patient, behaviour therapy based body weight Reduction program (Optifast®-program) in five of the authors' obese apnea patients.
Uvulopalatopharyngoplastik ohne Komplikationen: eine Modifikation nach Fujita
A modification of Fujita's technique of UPPP is presented, which consists of excising redundant velar tissues from the free margin of the soft palate, tonsillar pillars, and uvula without reducing the muscles of the velum.
The potential for neurostimulation in obstructive sleep apnea.
The open-loop systems proposed here are based upon principles pioneered by us for the rehabilitation of the paralyzed larynx that are now well within practical reach of current technologies.
Effects of submental electrical stimulation during sleep on upper airway patency in patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
Findings show that submental stimulation decreases the incidence of apnea episodes and promotes deeper sleep without accompanying serious side effects, suggesting that the apnea demand-type stimulator may be a noninvasive and effective treatment for OSAS.
Site of pharyngeal narrowing predicts outcome of surgery for obstructive sleep apnea.
The results show that evaluation of passive pharyngeal mechanics identifies patients with OSA likely to improve after UPPP, and this region of the passive airway most susceptible to narrowing or complete closure is identified.
The effect of electrical stimulation on obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.
The results obtained do not give convincing support for the use of electrical stimulation using submental surface or intraoral electrodes as a viable approach for effective control of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome symptoms.
Maxillomandibular advancement surgery in 23 patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.
Palatopharyngoplasty and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.
Thirty-five patients diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) underwent palatopharyngoplasty (PPP) after an objective evaluation, with significant improvement in the apnea-hypopnea index (A + H index) and oxygen desaturation.
Effects of electrical stimulation of the genioglossus on upper airway resistance in anesthetized dogs.
It is suggested that at a stimulating frequency of more than 50 Hz, upper airway patency is stably maintained in anesthetized dogs.
The effects of a nonsurgical treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. The tongue-retaining device.
There was significantly improved sleep and significantly fewer and shorter apneic events on all nights when the device was worn, and the mean apnea plus hypopnea index while wearing the TRD is comparable with the rate reported for patients who have been treated surgically by either tracheostomy or by uvulopalatopharyngoplasty.
