Explore the latest in obstructive sleep apnea, including advances in prosthetic, CPAP, and surgical treatments.
This randomized clinical trial compares the effect of multilevel airway surgery (combined palatal and tongue surgery) vs ongoing medical management on apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) measures and daytime sleepiness symptoms in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) whose condition did not respond to CPAP treatment.
This secondary analysis compares the use of objective physiological measures with subjective caregiver symptom reports to identify the association between sleep disruption with or without intermittent hypoxemia and behavior in children who underwent surgical treatment for obstructive sleep apnea.
This cohort study evaluates the use of therapeutic nasal positive airway pressure response during drug-induced sleep endoscopy as a predictor of the success of subsequent hypoglossal nerve stimulation.
This randomized clinical trial evaluates the effectiveness of adenotonsillectomy compared with watchful waiting in children aged 2 and 4 years who experience mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.
This cohort study assesses whether continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy is associated with nasal congestion in patients with allergic rhinitis, nonallergic rhinitis, or no rhinitis.
This secondary analysis of a randomized noninferiority clinical trial evaluates the association of wait times for care with clinical outcomes for patients with severe sleep-disordered breathing.
This cohort study examines whether preoperative obstructive sleep apnea is associated with postoperative incident delirium in the intensive care unit (ICU) and if preoperative positive airway pressure adherence modifies the association.
This review provides an update on the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of obstructive sleep apnea, including the incorporation of questions regarding snoring, breathing pauses at night, and excessive fatigue or sleepiness during the day at routine clinician visits and the increased use of home sleep apnea testing rather than in-hospital testing for diagnostic purposes.
A man in his 40s with a medical history of obstructive sleep apnea, persistent fatigue, and headaches presented with dental malocclusion, growth in his tongue and feet, and swelling in his hands. What is your diagnosis?
This cohort study examines subjective patient-reported outcomes after nasal breathing surgery and identifies factors associated with patients’ perception of the procedure’s value.
This cohort study aims to develop and validate a utility scoring algorithm for a sleep apnea–specific quality-of-life instrument.
This diagnostic study compares the performance of mandibular movement monitoring during sleep coupled with an automated analysis by machine learning vs polysomnography for the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea in adults.
This cohort study uses a Korean nationwide database to investigate whether obstructive sleep apnea is associated with the development of depression and anxiety.
This cohort study examines data from trials on the use of hypoglossal nerve stimulation for treatment of patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
This economic evaluation based on publicly available data assesses the use and cost of an implantable device, approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in 2014, that offers a unique alternative to patients with moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea and poor response to continuous positive airway pressure.
This cohort study evaluates findings from drug-induced vs natural sleep tests for adults with sleep-disordered breathing, including degrees and types of upper-airway collapse.
This cohort study of 392 participants with obesity and severe obstructive sleep apnea evaluates whether the prescription of positive airway pressure treatment is associated with lower mortality.
