    In some conditions continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) or bilevel positive airway pressure (BIPAP) therapy alone fails to provide satisfactory oxygenation. In these situations oxygen (O2) is often being added to CPAP/BIPAP mask or hose. Central sleep apnea and obstructive sleep apnea...

    Obstructive sleep-disordered breathing is common in children. From 3 percent to 12 percent of children snore, while obstructive sleep apnea syndrome affects 1 percent to 10 percent of children. The majority of these children have mild symptoms, and many outgrow the condition. Consequences of...

The presence of nasal obstruction limits the effectiveness of positive airway pressure in patients with OSA and snoring symptom. It is suggested that the surgical treatment...

    The article focuses on the sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) and the role of neuromuscular disorders in increasing the risk of developing SDB. It says that patients with neuromuscular disease like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) are at higher risk of SDB because of the pathophysiology of the...
