Explore the latest in obstructive sleep apnea, including advances in prosthetic, CPAP, and surgical treatments.
This cohort study investigates the association between long-term use of hypoglossal nerve stimulation for obstructive sleep apnea and improved patient-reported outcomes, particularly insomnia and depression indices, and compares these outcomes with those for positive airway pressure therapy.
This cohort study assesses whether the increased burden of obstructive sleep apnea is associated with white matter hyperintensity load and investigates the influence of additional metabolic, vascular, and lifestyle white matter hyperintensity risk factors on this association.
This secondary analysis of a randomized clinical trial of children who underwent adenotonsillectomy for nonsevere obstructive sleep apnea evaluates the prevalence of nocturnal enuresis after the operation.
This cohort study tests the association of pediatric obstructive sleep apnea with elevated blood pressure and its orthostatic reactivity in adolescence.
This cohort study assesses the association of surgery for patients with obstructive sleep apnea with outcomes including cardiovascular, endocrine, and neurological sequelae of apnea.
This systematic review and meta-analysis evaluates the utility of the STOP-Bang (snoring, tired, observed apnea, blood pressure, body mass index, age, neck size, gender) questionnaire in the sleep clinic setting to screen for and stratify the risk of obstructive sleep apnea among populations from different geographical regions.
This cohort study examines drug-induced sleep endoscopy findings in surgically naive children with obesity and children with Down syndrome.
This case-control study examines the demographic variables, comorbidities, exposure to obstructive sleep apnea, and obstructive sleep apnea therapies in adult men with or without an infertility diagnosis.
This case report presents the electrocardiographic findings a woman in her 50s with COVID-19, fever, and shortness of breath, with comorbidities including morbid obesity and obstructive sleep apnea.
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 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 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?
