While trying to represent patients in the design of integrated care, I have heard the words system, systemic and holism used frequently. Few of those using the words seem to be aware of the history of systems thinking, or its principles. Health interventi ...

Simplifying the Screening of Obstructive Sleep Apnea With a 2-Item Model, No-Apnea: A Cross-Sectional Study

Study Objectives: To develop and validate a practical model for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) screening in adults based on objectively assessed criteria, and then compare it with two widely used tools, namely STOP-BANG and NoSAS. ...

Adropin and Inflammation Biomarker Levels in Male Patients With Obstructive Sleep Apnea: A Link With Glucose Metabolism and Sleep Parameters

Study Objectives: The main objectives of the study were to determine plasma adropin, systemic inflammation biomarker levels, and glucose metabolism parameters in patients with moderate and severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) compared to healthy controls. ...

Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Cardiac Rehabilitation Patients

Study Objectives: Although regular physical activity improves obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in the general population, this finding has not been assessed in postmyocardial infarction (MI) patients in a rehabilitation setting (coronary artery disease, CAD) ...

Sleep Disturbances in Midlife Women at the Cusp of the Menopausal Transition

Craniofacial Phenotyping in Chinese and Caucasian Patients With Sleep Apnea: Influence of Ethnicity and Sex

Study Objectives: Craniofacial abnormalities are a risk factor for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). We have previously shown that phenotypic information derived from craniofacial photographs predict OSA in sleep clinic populations. However, there are likely ...

Positive Airway Pressure Therapy Is Challenging for Patients With Epilepsy

Study Objectives: To investigate whether patients with epilepsy and comorbid obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are more likely to be nonadherent to positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy than adults with OSA but without epilepsy. ...

Changes in Sleep Characteristics and Breathing Parameters During Sleep in Early and Late Pregnancy

Study Objectives: Few studies have objectively evaluated sleep characteristics during pregnancy or investigated the relationship between altered spectral electroencephalogram (EEG) bands and sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). The study aimed to describe ch ...

Quantitative Analysis of Thoracoabdominal Asynchrony in Pediatric Polysomnography

Study Objectives: Objective measurements of thoracoabdominal asynchrony (TAA), such as average phase angle (θavg), can quantify airway obstruction. This study demonstrates and evaluates use of θavg for predicting obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in pediatric ...

Sleep Disturbances in Traumatic Brain Injury: Associations With Sensory Sensitivity

Study Objectives: Sleep disturbances following traumatic brain injury (TBI) in Veterans are very common and often persist as chronic sequelae. In addition, sensory sensitivity, ie, discomfort upon exposure to light and noise, is common after TBI. However, ...

Continued Presence of Period Limb Movements During REM Sleep in Patients With Chronic Static Pediatric Acute-Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome (PANS)

Study Objectives: A major component of pediatric acute-onset neuropsychiatric syndrome (PANS) is disruption of sleep. These disturbances have been reported in the acute phase of diagnosis but it is unknown if these sleep disruptions persist, especially in ...
