A validation study of an esophageal probe–based polygraph against polysomnography in obstructive sleep apnea

The aim of this study was to validate the automatically scored results of an esophageal probe–based polygraph system (ApneaGraph® Spiro) against manually scored polysomnography (Nox A1, PSG) results.

On the rise and fall of the apnea−hypopnea index: A historical review and critical appraisal

The historical evolution of the apnea−hypopnea index, which has been subject to many changes, and has been criticised for not capturing relevant clinical features of obstructive sleep apnea, is summarised.

Effect of Varying Definitions of Hypopnea on the Diagnosis and Clinical Outcomes of Sleep-Disordered Breathing: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

A systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the effect of different hypopnea definitions on the diagnosis, severity, and clinical implications of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) found that 2012Hypopnea scoring criteria resulted in a greater prevalence and severity of SDB.

Incidence of Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Elderly Edentulous Patients and the Possible Correlation of Serum Serotonin and Apnea‐Hypopnea Index

OSA was found to be prevalent in edentulous subjects due to pharyngeal collapse and decreased neuromuscular control and an inverse relationship of serum serotonin levels and AHI scores was established.

Sleep characteristics in an adult with sleep complaints in three cities at different altitudes

The objective of the present study was to determine the sleep characteristics of a patient undergoing polysomnography in three Colombian cities at different altitudes, and it is assumed that the patient is normal or has moderate OSA depending on the city where he is.

Retrospective, nonrandomized controlled study on autoadjusting, dual-pressure positive airway pressure therapy for a consecutive series of complex insomnia disorder patients

Insomnia severity significantly decreased in patients using autoadjusting PAP devices, but the study design restricts interpretation to an association.

Positive airway pressure adherence and subthreshold adherence in posttraumatic stress disorder patients with comorbid sleep apnea

Research is warranted on advanced PAP modes in managing CPAP failure in PTSD patients with comorbid OSA, and clinical application of this transitional zone (“subthreshold” number of hours) may increase PAP use and eventual adherence.



Adaptive Servo-Ventilation Therapy in a Case Series of Patients with Co-morbid Insomnia and Sleep Apnea

ASV therapy was associated with improved sleep quality and increased device usage in this select sample, and adherence was significantly greater for nightly use and hours per night compared to prior use of standard PAP.

Characterization of obstructive nonapneic respiratory events in moderate sleep apnea syndrome.

In a population of moderate OSAHS, OH represented the dominant type of ONAREs when RERAs should be considered as specific but relatively rare respiratory events, demonstrating some limitations in the AASM Task Force recommendations for definitions of respiratory events.

The scoring of respiratory events in sleep: reliability and validity.

Sleep and daytime sleepiness in upper airway resistance syndrome compared to obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome.

Differences in the macrostructure and spectral activity of sleep between upper airway resistance and obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome patients are demonstrated, demonstrated by differences in the cortical activity recorded in the central lead during sleep.

Upper airway resistance syndrome. Central electroencephalographic power and changes in breathing effort.

Upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS) is defined by excessive daytime sleepiness and tiredness, and is associated with increased breathing effort. Its polygraphic features involve progressive

Apnoeic and obstructive nonapnoeic sleep respiratory events

In patients with mild disease, the addition of an arousal to ONEs, with only desaturation, markedly increased respiratory disturbance index, with probable therapeutic implications.

Frequency and significance of increased upper airway resistance during sleep.

It is confirmed that patients with UARS have periods of increased upper airway resistance associated with significant sleep fragmentation, and resistive events are also common in normal subjects, although these are associated with less negative pleural pressure swings and fewer arousals.

Prospective assessment of nocturnal awakenings in a case series of treatment-seeking chronic insomnia patients: a pilot study of subjective and objective causes.

Among patients with insomnia with no classic sleep breathing symptoms and therefore low probability of a sleep breathing disorder, most of their awakenings were precipitated by a medical condition (sleep disordered breathing), which contrasted sharply with their perceptions about their awakening.

Predictors of response to a nasal expiratory resistor device and its potential mechanisms of action for treatment of obstructive sleep apnea.

The present study shows that the nasal valve device can alter SDB across the full spectrum of SDB severity, and suggests that subjects with positional or milder SDB in the lateral position were those most likely to respond.
