    The perfect murder is one where the murderer cannot be caught nor identified. Sleep apnoea syndrome is a condition which kills patients but the death is normally assigned to other illness. A patient with ischemic heart disease and sleep apnoea dies in his sleep. His nocturnal oxygen saturation...

    The author discusses the relation between sleep apnoea-hypopnoea syndrome (SAHS) and gout. It is stated that SAHS is characterized by cyclic apnoea that is associated with repeated changes in arterial oxygen saturation. The author states that strongest evidence for gout resulting from...

  • Is there a familial association between obstructive sleep apnoea/hypopnoea and the sudden infant death syndrome? Vennelle, M.; Brander, P. E.; Kingshott, R. N.; Rees, K.; Warren, P. M.; Keeling, J. W.; Douglas, N. J. // Thorax;Apr2004, Vol. 59 Issue 4, p337 

    Background: One postulated cause of the sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is upper airway obstruction during sleep. Several studies have suggested that SIDS may be more common in families with obstructive steep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome (OSAHS), but were limited by uncertainty as to whether...

    Background: Quadriplegia is a severe, catastrophic injury that predominantly affects people early in life, resulting in lifelong physical disability. Obstructive sleep apnoea is a direct consequence of quadriplegia and is associated with neurocognitive deficits, sleepiness and reduced quality of...

    BACKGROUND: There are conflicting results for the association between obstructive sleep apnoea and raised C reactive protein (CRP) levels. A study was undertaken to investigate whether nocturnal intermittent hypoxia, a surrogate marker for obstructive sleep apnoea, was associated with CRP levels...

    Nocturnal polysomnography (PSG) is the gold-standard to diagnose obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS). However, it is complex, expensive, and time-consuming. We present an automatic OSAS detection algorithm based on classification of nocturnal oxygen saturation (SaO) recordings. The...

    Objectives.--Sleep at extreme altitudes is characterized by the repetitive occurrence of central apneas that in some cases may lead to a marked decrease in arterial oxygen saturation. During the Ludwig Maximilians University Expedition to Mt. Everest (MedEx 2006), nocturnal polygraphic...

    The goal of this study was to establish whether adenotonsillectomy is effective on the severity of oxygen desaturation or improve oxygen saturation in children with sleep breathing disorders. Thirty-two children, aged 4-7 years, with clinical indication for adenotonsillectomy were enrolled in a...

V.; Khairzamanova, T. A. // Pacific Medical Journal / Tihookeanskij Medicinskij Zurnal;2013, Vol. 51 Issue 3, p22 

    The paper reviews polysomnography of 83 patients with chronic obstructive lung disease associated with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome/hypopnoea. The obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome was diagnosed in 62 patients (75 %): there were mild (26 patients), moderate (17 patients), and severe (19...
