    The pathogenesis of airway obstruction in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome is reviewed. The primary defect is probably an anatomically small or collapsible pharyngeal airway, in combination with a sleep induced fall in upper airway muscle activity.

    Contraction of the genioglossus affects either tongue protrusion strength or dilating forces of the upper airway. The upper airway in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is thought to collapse during sleep, at least in part because of a sleep related reduction in genioglossus muscle...

    A definition of the term "mandibular advancement splint" is presented, which refers to a device to maintain an open airway in patients who suffer partial upper airway collapse during sleep.

    DOCTORS are increasingly turning to music in their treatment of common ailments. This week: snoring. AROUND 5 per cent of Britons suffer from sleep apnoea, a condition caused by the collapse of the upper airways; the airways close temporarily, triggering snoring.

    Background In patients with sleep apnoea, primary oropharyngeal collapse of the upper airway during sleep is an important predictor of treatment success with an oral appliance. Phrenic nerve stimulation is able to induce upper airway obstruction and was therefore used to mimic the target for an...

    The article features the continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine and mask, manufactured by ResMed. The machine is used to treat obstructive sleep apnea. It uses air pressure to keep the upper airway open. Apnea is a condition where the airway temporarily collapses during sleep, which...

    This study was carried out to test the hypothesis that changes in head/body position induce changes in upper-airway dimensions. Contiguous images were obtained by means of magnetic resonance imaging in normal awake subjects during nasal breathing. A statistical analysis was made on 5 consecutive...

    Sleep cine magnetic resonance imaging and drug-induced sleep endoscopy are currently used to examine the patterns of dynamic airway collapse in children with obstructive sleep apnea. Providing anesthesia that mimics physiologic sleep in these children is a challenge but is critical for accurate...

    Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common disorder characterized by repetitive interruption of ventilation during sleep caused by recurrent upper airway collapse, which leads to intermittent hypoxia. The disorder is commonly undiagnosed despite its relationship with substantial cardiovascular...

    Objectives: Although pharyngeal airway length has been implicated in an increased male predisposition for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in adults, data in obese children and adolescents are lacking. Our objective was to determine the influence of gender on pharyngeal airway length in obese...
