Impact of Different Dialysis on Sleep Apnea in Patients With Renal Failure

Sleep apnea or breathing problems during sleep are frequent, occurring in 6% of the general population. However, more than half of all patients on dialysis suffer from breathing problems related to sleep. Sleep apnea is associated with high blood pressure, excessive sleepiness, fatigue, poor memory and concentration as well as ...

Phase N/A

Treatment Resistant Depression and Obstructive Sleep Apnea Effect of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)

Primary objective: What is the effect on mood and anxiety symptoms of adding CPAP to the psychiatric treatment of patients with TRD and associated OSA? Secondary objectives: 1. How common is co-morbid OSA in patients with treatment resistant unipolar depression referred to a tertiary Mood Disorders Clinic? 2. Is there ...

Phase N/A

Platelet Activation and Circadian Rhythms of Clotting-Fibrinolysis Factors in Patients With Sleep Apnea Syndrome

The hypothesis of the study is the following: Patients with sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome have higher risk of cardiovascular mortality during the night. Respiratory alterations (hypoxia, hypoxia- reoxygenation) that these patients suffer during the sleep may induce modifications in platelet function, clotting-fibrinolysis factors and endothelial function, that may accelerate cardiovascular events ...

Phase N/A

Sleep Apnea-Hypopnea Syndrome and the Pathogenesis of Obesity

OBJECTIVES: To compare the plasmatic profiles of different hormones and neuropeptides, related with weight control, metabolism and intake in patients with SAHS as well as in selected control subjects according to weight. DESIGN: Multicenter, prospective and controlled study. 40 patients with SAHS will be included as well as 40 control ...

Phase N/A

A Combined Surgical and Medical Approach in Mild Sleep Apnea

The aim of the study is to investigate wether the adjuvant (postoperative) administration of acetazolamide can improve the surgical results after uvulopalatopharyngoplasty in patients with mild sleep apnea.

Phase N/A

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure in Sleep Apnea Syndrome: Effects on Metabolic Syndrome and Cardiac Damage

To assess in moderate to severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea the effects of one year therapy with nighttime continuous positive airway pressure ventilation on the prevalence of metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular damage.


Surgical Treatment of Mild Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is one of the most common sleep disorder. There are numerous conditions that are related to OSA, such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and metabolic syndrome. If the patient with OSA have large tonsils, soft and largened uvula or flacid soft palate, one might benefit from operative ...

Phase N/A

Sleep Apnea in Cerebrovascular Disease

The study will evaluate a diagnostic/therapeutic intervention among veterans with cerebrovascular disease, hypertension, and obesity using unattended polysomnography to diagnose sleep apnea and CPAP with an adherence/educational protocol to treat sleep apnea. Electronic databases will be used to identify patients at two VA medical centers with cerebrovascular disease (stroke or ...

Phase N/A

Treatment of Sleep Apnea Syndrome With nCPAP Versus Oral Appliance

This prospective randomized cross over study aims to compare nCPAP with mandibular advancement device for the treatment of sleep apnea syndrome.The effectiveness of nCPAP and oral appliance on apnea-hypopnea index, daytime sleepiness and quality of life will be compared in 60 patients.

Phase N/A

Impact of nCPAP Treatment on Liver Function in Patients With Sleep Apnea Syndrome and Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis

This study aims to evaluate the impact of nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP) treatment on liver enzymes in patients with sleep apnea syndrome and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. Using a cross over design, the evolution of liver enzymes will be evaluated in 40 patients during a consecutive period of 6 weeks, ...
