Sleep Med 2022 Jun 9;97:64-72. Epub 2022 Jun 9.

2nd Department of Respiratory Medicine, Institute of Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases, Warsaw, Poland.

Objective: In 2010, a questionnaire-based study on obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) management in Europe identified differences regarding reimbursement, sleep specialist qualification, and titration procedures. Now, 10 years later, a follow-up study was conducted as part of the ESADA (European Sleep Apnea Database) network to explore the development of OSA management over time.

Methods: The 2010 questionnaire including questions on sleep diagnostic, reimbursement, treatment, and certification was updated with questions on telemedicine and distributed to European Sleep Centers to reflect European OSA management practice. Read More

Within-night Repeatability and Long-term Consistency of Sleep Apnea Endotypes: The Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis and Osteoporotic Fractures in Men Study.

Sleep 2022 Jun 11. Epub 2022 Jun 11.

Division of Sleep and Circadian Disorders, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA.

Study Objectives: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is characterized by multiple "endotypic traits", including pharyngeal collapsibility, muscle compensation, loop gain, and arousal threshold. Here we examined 1) within-night repeatability, 2) long-term consistency, and 3) influences of body position and sleep state, of endotypic traits estimated from in-home polysomnography in mild-to-severe OSA (apnea-hypopnea index, AHI>5 events/hr).

Methods: Within-night repeatability was assessed using Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA): Traits derived separately from "odd" and "even" 30-min periods were correlated and regression (error vs. Read More

Changes in airway patency and sleep-breathing in healthy skeletal Class II children undergoing functional activator therapy.

Eur Oral Res 2022 Jan;56(1):1-9

Department of Orthodontics and Craniofacial Developmental Biology, Graduate School of Biomedical and Health Sciences, Hiroshima UniversityJapan.

Purpose: Several studies agree that an abnormal maxilla-mandible relationship correlates better as an Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) predictor, rather than obesity. One of the orthodontic therapies recommended for this kind of craniofacial deformity is to advance the mandible forward with an orthodontic activator, therefore, the aim of this study is to determine if healthy children that use this appliance experience a widening of the upper airway as well as an improvement in their sleep-breathing patterns.

Materials And Methods: 39 healthy children, 20 for activator group (10 boys and 10 girls, 4 mean age 10. Read More

Migraine may disturb sleep perception during sleep onset: a retrospective data analysis.

J Clin Sleep Med 2022 Apr 27. Epub 2022 Apr 27.

Study Objectives: As sleep latency is an important factor in the diagnosis of many disorders, it is important to know whether the patient's subjective evaluation of sleep latency corresponds with an objectively measured evaluation. Some studies indicate that patients usually overestimate their sleep latency. We sought to determine how comorbidities affect the patient's ability to assess their sleep latency. Read More

Scoring heart rate increases as a surrogate arousal marker on portable monitor studies for obstructive sleep apnea: Impact on diagnostic accuracy and clinical decision-making.

J Sleep Res 2022 Apr 19:e13594. Epub 2022 Apr 19.

Respiratory Division and Sleep Laboratory, Montreal Chest Institute - McGill University Health Centre, Respiratory Epidemiology Clinical Research Unit and Meakins-Christie Laboratories, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Cortical arousal-related hypopneas are not scored on type 3 home devices, which therefore limits their diagnostic accuracy for obstructive sleep apnea. The objective of this study was to evaluate whether scoring heart rate accelerations as surrogate markers of arousal improves type 3 portable monitor diagnostic agreement compared with polysomnography and improves therapeutic decision-making. We prospectively recruited patients evaluated for obstructive sleep apnea to undergo in-laboratory simultaneous full polysomnography + type 3 portable monitoring. Read More

Auditory Receptive Field Net based Automatic Snore Detection for Wearable Devices.

IEEE J Biomed Health Inform 2022 Apr 4;PP. Epub 2022 Apr 4.

Although obstructive sleep apnea and hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) is a common sleep disease, it is sometimes difficult to be detected in time because of the inconvenience of polysomnography (PSG) examination. Since snoring is one of the earliest symptoms of OSAHS, it can be used for early OSAHS prediction. With the recent development of wearable and IoT sensors, we proposed a deep learning-based accurate snore detection model for long-term home monitoring of snoring during sleep. Read More

Trends in Diagnosing Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Pediatrics.

Children (Basel) 2022 Feb 24;9(3). Epub 2022 Feb 24.

Department of Medicine, University of California San Francisco-Fresno, Fresno, CA 93701, USA.

Obstructive sleep apnea in children has been linked with behavioral and neurocognitive problems, impaired growth, cardiovascular morbidity, and metabolic consequences. Diagnosing children at a young age can potentially prevent significant morbidity associated with OSA. Despite the importance of taking a comprehensive sleep history and performing thorough physical examination to screen for signs and symptoms of OSA, these findings alone are inadequate for definitively diagnosing OSA.
