    Question of the study In order to lower the costs of the diagnosis of sleep apnoea syndrome (SAS), we compared recordings of respiratory polygraphy (RP) and full polysomnography (PSG) and conducted a cost-effectiveness study on recordings in the laboratory and at home. Patients and methods A...

    Although it is currently known that sleep can influence epilepsy and epilepsy can influence sleep organization, few data have been published on this mutual interaction concerning the pediatric population. The objective of this study was to verify the eventual presence of sleep alterations in...

    Introduction Home respiratory polygraphy (HRP) may be a cost-effective alternative to polysomnography for the diagnosis of sleep apnoea-hypopnoea syndrome (SAHS), but stronger evidence is needed. Normally, patients transport HRP equipment from the hospital to home and back, which may create...

    The calculation of apnea-hypopnea index requires knowledge of sleeping time. Is it possible to correctly decide the times when a patient falls asleep in the evening and wakes up in the morning from an ambulant sleep apnea with EEG? Thirteen patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome were...

    Aims: To investigate blood pressure (BP) in children with sleep disordered breathing (SDB). Methods: BP was measured during single night polysomnography in 23 suspected SDB child patients with adenotonsillar hypertrophy, but without respiratory or heart failure, or coma. The age related changes...

    ApneaGraph relies on measuring pressure and airflow simultaneously at different levels in the pharynx identifying the segment of airway obstruction and providing baseline respiratory parameters. This study aims to evaluate ApneaGraph and correlate results with both sleep nasendoscopy and...

    Different pathological conditions may lead to somnambulic automatisms arising from nocturnal sleep. Video polysomnography represents the diagnostic tool but, due to the difficulty of capturing complex episodes in the sleep laboratory, audio-video recordings at home of the episodes may help in...

    Background: The purpose of this study was to describe the sleep structure (especially slow wave sleep) in adults with congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS), a rare genetic disease due to mutations in the PHOX2B gene. Fourteen patients aged 23 (19.0; 24.8) years old...

    Rationale: Limited-channel portable monitors (PMs) are increasingly used as an alternative to polysomnography (PSG) for the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). However, recommendations for the scoring of PM recordings are still lacking. Pulse-wave amplitude (PWA) drops,...

    Central sleep apnea (CSA) is characterized by the cessation of air flow without respiratory effort during sleep. Various neurological diseases have been shown to be associated with CSA. In this case, we report a 37-year-old male with who admitted to us for sleep respiratory disturbance. CSA was...
