Accelerometry-derived respiratory index estimating apnea-hypopnea index for sleep apnea screening.

Comput Methods Programs Biomed 2021 May 31;207:106209. Epub 2021 May 31.

Grenoble Alpes University, CNRS, CHU Grenoble Alpes, Grenoble INP, TIMC, Grenoble, France. Electronic address:

Background And Objective: Sleep Apnea Syndrome (SAS) is a multimorbid chronic disease with individual and societal deleterious consequences. Polysomnography (PSG) is the multi-parametric reference diagnostic tool that allows a manual quantification of the apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) to assess SAS severity. The burden of SAS is affecting nearly one billion people worldwide explaining that SAS remains largely under-diagnosed and undertreated. Read More

Treating Insomnia Symptoms with Medicinal Cannabis: A Randomized, Cross-Over Trial of the Efficacy of a Cannabinoid Medicine Compared with Placebo.

Sleep 2021 Jun 11. Epub 2021 Jun 11.

Centre for Sleep Science, School of Human Sciences, The University of Western Australia, 35 Stirling Hwy, Crawley, Western Australia.

Study Objectives: This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over study was conducted to evaluate the safety and efficacy of two-weeks of nightly sublingual cannabinoid extract (ZTL-101) in treating chronic insomnia (symptoms ≥three months).

EEG Patterns Prior to Motor Activations of Parasomnias: A Systematic Review.

Nat Sci Sleep 2021 3;13:713-728. Epub 2021 Jun 3.

Department of Psychology, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy.

The polysomnographic studies showed an increase in sleep fragmentation and an atypical slow wave activity (SWA) in participants with NREM parasomnias compared to healthy controls. To date, the pathophysiology of NREM parasomnias is still poorly understood. Read More

Contribution of sleep characteristics to the association between obstructive sleep apnea and dyslipidemia.

Sleep Med 2021 May 26;84:63-72. Epub 2021 May 26.

Grupo de Enfermedades Respiratorias, Servicio de Neumologia, Hospital Universitario La Paz-IdiPAZ, Madrid, Spain; Centro de Investigación Biomédica en Red en Enfermedades Respiratorias (CIBERES), Madrid, Spain; Facultad de Medicina, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Madrid, Spain. Electronic address:

Objectives/background: Little information is available about the association of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with atherogenic dyslipidemia and the contribution of sleep characteristics to lipid alterations. We compare dyslipidemia prevalence among non-apneic subjects and mild-severe OSA patients to identify the sleep characteristics that are independently associated with dyslipidemia and serum lipid levels in OSA patients.

SCNN: Scalogram-based convolutional neural network to detect obstructive sleep apnea using single-lead electrocardiogram signals.

Comput Biol Med 2021 May 29;134:104532. Epub 2021 May 29.

WHO Collaborating Centre on eHealth, UNSW Digital Health, School of Public Health and Community Medicine, University of New South Wales, Australia. Electronic address:

Sleep apnea is a common symptomatic disease affecting nearly 1 billion people around the world. The gold standard approach for determining the severity of sleep apnea is full-night polysomnography conducted in the laboratory, which is very costly and cumbersome. In this work, we propose a novel scalogram-based convolutional neural network (SCNN) to detect obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) using single-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) signals. Read More

[Atypical depression as a risk factor for obstructive sleep apnea syndrome in young adults].

Encephale 2021 Jun 3. Epub 2021 Jun 3.

Hôpital Erasme, Service de Psychiatrie et Laboratoire du Sommeil, Université libre de Bruxelles, ULB, route de Lennik 808, 1070 Bruxelles, Belgique.

Objectives: In the literature, several studies have investigated the particular relationship between major depression and obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS). However, most of these studies have focused primarily on middle-aged to elderly individuals (≥40 years) which means that this problem has been little studied in young adults (<30 years). Nevertheless, in young adults the prevalence of major depression (particularly its atypical subtype) is not negligible, which seems to justify carrying out additional investigations in order to allow a better understanding of the potential role played by major depression in the pathophysiology of OSAS in this particular subpopulation.

Increased spindle density correlates with sleep continuity improvements following an 8-week course of a melatonin agonist in people with depression: A proof-of-concept study with agomelatine.

Eur J Neurosci 2021 Jun 5. Epub 2021 Jun 5.

Sleep Research Unit, The Royal Institute for Mental Health Research, Ottawa, ON, Canada.

Sleep fragmentation and reductions in sleep spindles have been observed in individuals with depression. Sleep spindles are known to play a protective role for sleep, and there are indications that melatonin agents can enhance spindles in healthy people. Whether agomelatine, a melatonin agonist indicated for the treatment of depression, may increase spindle density sufficiently to impact sleep continuity in people with depression remains unknown.

Predictors for carotid and femoral artery intima-media thickness in a non-diabetic sleep clinic cohort.

PLoS One 2021 4;16(6):e0252569. Epub 2021 Jun 4.

Ludwig Engel Centre for Respiratory Research, The Westmead Institute for Medical Research, Westmead, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Introduction: The impact of sleep disordered breathing (SDB) on arterial intima-media thickness (IMT), a surrogate measure for cardiovascular disease, remains uncertain, in part because of the potential for non-SDB vascular risk factor interactions. In the present study, we determined predictors for common carotid (CCA) and femoral (CFA) artery IMT in an adult, sleep clinic cohort where non-SDB vascular risk factors (particularly diabetes) were eliminated or controlled.

Methods: We recruited 296 participants for polysomnography (standard SDB severity metrics) and CCA/CFA ultrasound examinations, followed by a 12 month vascular risk factor minimisation (RFM) and continuous positive pressure (CPAP) intervention for participants with a range of SDB severity (RFM Sub-Group, n = 157; apnea hyponea index [AHI]: 14.

Pilot study of the effects of ventilation and ventilation noise on sleep quality in the young and elderly.

Indoor Air 2021 Jun 3. Epub 2021 Jun 3.

Department of Civil Engineering, International Centre for Indoor Environment and Energy, Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Lyngby, Denmark.

Three conditions were established to investigate the effects of ventilation and related ventilation noise on sleep quality: No mechanical ventilation/low noise (A); Mechanical ventilation /low noise (B); Mechanical ventilation/high noise (C). The interventions were achieved by idling a mechanical ventilation system or operating it in two different modes. Nine young people and nine older people were all exposed to each of the three conditions for a whole night's sleep, but data from only 15 subjects were analyzed as three young subjects apparently slept with open windows in condition A.
