  • Validation of the pediatric sleep questionnaire in children with asthma. [Journal Article]
  • PPPediatr Pulmonol 2016 Oct 27
  • Ehsan Z, Kercsmar CM, … Simakajornboon N
  • CONCLUSIONS: The sensitivity of PSQ in asthmatic children is high and comparable to previous studies, but the specificity is low. The PSQ may be considered a reasonable first-line screening tool for OSA in asthmatic children. Pediatr Pulmonol. 2016; 9999:XX-XX. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
  • [Supine position and REM dependence in obstructive sleep apnea. Critical model considerations. German version]. [Journal Article]
  • HNOHNO 2016 Oct 27
  • Steffen A, Maibücher L, König IR
  • CONCLUSIONS: The modified Cartwright index allowed identification of borderline cases that were characterized by a very low or high amount of time spent in the supine position or REM sleep situation. Treatment effects that could have been caused only by other components, e.g., different times spent in the supine position, could be better controlled for. In future studies there will be various other ratios besides the previously accepted 2:1 ratio when different statistical parameters are considered, such as the reduction of OSA severity or adherence to treatment.
  • Exercise, Occupational Activity, and Risk of Sleep Apnea: A Cross-Sectional Study. [Journal Article]
  • JCJ Clin Sleep Med 2016 Oct 20
  • da Silva RP, Martinez D, … Fiori CZ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Structured physical exercise is associated with lower odds for OSA, independently of confounders. Occupational activity does not seem to replace the effects of regular exercise. Compensatory behaviors may be involved in these diverging outcomes. Our results warrant further research about the effect of occupational activity on OSA severity.
  • Interventional Drug-Induced Sleep Endoscopy: A Novel Technique to Guide Surgical Planning for Obstructive Sleep Apnea. [Journal Article]
  • JCJ Clin Sleep Med 2016 Oct 20
  • Victores AJ, Olson K, Takashima M
  • CONCLUSIONS: To our knowledge, this is the first study to evaluate the effect of soft palatal stenting on downstream pharyngeal obstruction during DISE. Our study provides evidence that reducing soft palatal collapse can reduce negative pharyngeal pressure and thereby alleviate other sites of upper airway obstruction. Taken together, these findings provide a means to identify appropriate candidates for isolated palatal surgery and better direct a minimally invasive approach to the surgical management of OSA.
