The pattern of change in arterial oxyhemoglobin saturation (SaO2%) during sleep was characterized in 13 patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD), 12 of whom had restrictive ventilatory impairment. Four patients snored during sleep. During the studies, 9 patients had unequivocal rapid eye movement (REM) sleep episodes. The total duration of each patient's REM episodes averaged 49 min (range, 26 to 93 min), which was 22 +/- 7% (1SD) of the total sleep duration. Seven of these 9 patients were… CONTINUE READING
