    The author comments on a study published within the issue which compared the apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) estimated by the continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine with that obtained during formal polysomnography while the patient is on auto-CPAP. It was found that a vast majority of...

    Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common health problem that affects more than 2–4% of the US population. Polysomnography (PSG) is the gold standard for diagnosing OSA. PSG is, however, expensive, time-consuming, and not always readily accessible. Hence, alternative diagnostic methods...

    Abstract Purpose  Split-night polysomnography can both establish the diagnosis and titrate continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) during a single study in patients with sleep-disordered breathing. We sought to determine if split-night polysomnography could be effectively used in upper...

    Background: Nocturnal heart block often occurs in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). It is more likely to be undiagnosed in heart block patients who are ignorant of the symptoms of sleep disorder. Berlin Questionnaire (BQ) is a highly reliable way to discover the risk...

    This paper aims at detecting sleep apnoea–hypopnoea syndrome (SAHS) from single-channel airflow (AF) recordings. The study involves 148 subjects. Our proposal is based on estimating the apnoea–hypopnoea index (AHI) after global analysis of AF, including the investigation of...

    Background: Patients with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) may be managed with different treatment options. This study compared the effectiveness of three commonly used non-surgical treatment modalities. Methods: Subjects with mild to moderate OSA were randomised to one of three...

    Background It is essential to detect and then treat factors that aggravate Alzheimer's disease (AD). Here, we sought to determine whether or not continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy for sleep apnoea syndrome (SAS) slows the rate of cognitive decline in mild-to-moderate AD patients....

    Background: Detailed polysomnography (PSG) and overnight continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) titration as the basis for investigation and treatment of obstructive sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome (OSAHS) incurs high costs from inpatient stays and technician attendance, even when split...
