The nose and pharynx begin the upper airway system and represent a continuum. This is the biologic basis for the mutual influences of rhinitis and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Sleep-disordered breathing has a large differential diagnosis that includes snoring, upper airway resistance syndrome, and severe OSA. Nasal obstruction is an independent risk factor for OSA, but there is no correlation of daytime nasal resistance with the severity of OSA. However, nasal resistance was an independent… 
Sleep impairment in allergic rhinitis, rhinosinusitis, and nasal polyposis.
The linkage of allergic rhinitis and obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
Prior studies have shown that treatment of allergic rhinitis, particularly when intranasal steroid are used, improved obstructive sleep apnea, and Leukotriene receptor antagonists were also associated with positive results on obstructiveSleep apnea in adult patients with concomitant allergic Rhinitis.
Rhinitis and sleep.
Congestion and Sleep Impairment in Allergic Rhinitis
TLDR
Data on sleep-related end points from clinical trials of intranasal corticosteroids indicate that this reduction is associated with improved sleep, reduced daytime fatigue, and improved quality of life.
Congestion and sleep impairment in allergic rhinitis.
TLDR
The adverse effects of disturbed sleep on quality of life and how these conditions can be reduced by therapies that decrease congestion are explored.
Therapeutic options for reducing sleep impairment in allergic rhinitis, rhinosinusitis, and nasal polyposis
TLDR
Intranasal corticosteroids (INSs) are the most effective medication for reducing congestion in patients with inflammatory nasal conditions and there is a growing amount of evidence that a reduction in congestion with INSs is associated with improved sleep, reduced daytime sleepiness, and enhanced patient quality of life.
Allergic Rhinitis and Its Impact on Sleep
TLDR
Identifying and treating allergic rhinitis improves sleep and the health related quality of life which reduces patient suffering and potentially saves significant health economic health costs.

Clinical associations between allergies and rapid eye movement sleep disturbances
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the rapid eye motion–respiratory disturbance index (REM‐RDI) may be a novel predictor of allergic status.

Severe upper airway obstruction during sleep
TLDR
It is important for allergists to be aware of how OSA may complicate diagnosis and treatment of asthma and allergic rhinitis, and a thorough sleep history and high clinical suspicion for OSA is indicated, particularly in asthma patients who are refractory to standard medication treatments.
Nasal resistance and sleep apnea
TLDR
It is concluded that nasal resistance is not a major factor in severe obstructive apnea, although the nose probably contributes to sleep apnea.
Obstructive apneas during sleep in patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis.
TLDR
In patients with allergic rhinitis, obstructive sleep apneas are longer and more frequent during a period of symptomatic nasal obstruction than when symptoms are absent, and the concept that a high nasal resistance may be a contributing factor in the pathogenesis of obstructiveSleep apnea in general is supported.

TLDR
Acute nasal obstruction caused a statistically significant increase in the number of partial and total obstructive respiratory events (obstructive hypopnea and obstructive apnea).
Nasal resistance in obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
Chronic changes in nasal resistance are not a significant risk factor for the development of obstructive sleep apnea or severity of OSA.
[Anamnestic and polygraphic parameters in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome patients with reduced nasal respiration during the day in comparison with obstructive sleep apnea patients with normal nasal respiration].
TLDR
The results underline the importance of nasal ventilation in the pathogenesis of OSAS and suggest a therapy of nasal obstruction might be of success in order to abolish n CPAP-therapy or might reduce nasal problems during nCPAP-Therapy and thus ameliorate patient's therapy compliance.

The Importance of Nasal Resistance in Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome: A Study with Positional Rhinomanometry
TLDR
This study evaluated the prevalence of nasal obstruction disorders in a group of OSAS patients by performing a traditional basal anterior active rhinomanometry test (AAR) and a positional AAR, with the patient in a supine position.
High Mallampati score and nasal obstruction are associated risk factors for obstructive sleep apnoea
TLDR
A high Mallampati score represents a predisposing factor for obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome, especially if it is associated with nasal obstruction, and these patients merit special attention from both the sleep physician and the anaesthetist.
Acoustic Rhinometry Findings in Patients with Mild Sleep Apnea
TLDR
This study has shown that greater nasal congestion is related to the presence of OSA in a population of patients with allergic rhinitis, and lends evidence to the thought that the nasal obstruction associated with allergicrhinitis is associated with the Presence of mild OSA.
