Sleep Apnea and Tromboembolic Disease

DESIGN: Case-control study. METHODS: 133 SAHS patients and 133 controls will be studied. The study includes: a) medical history; b) anthropometric variables (weight, height, body mass index, Mallampati index); c) sleepiness tested by Epworth scale; d) London Chest Activity of Daily Living Scale; e) conventional polysomnography (PSG); f) testing: clotting-fibrinolisis ...

Phase N/A

Treatment of Cheyne Stocks Respiration With Adaptive Servo Ventilation and Bilevel Ventilators in Patients With Chronic Heart Failure

The overall purpose of this study is to determine the effects of adaptive servo ventilation (ASV) and bi-level ventilators on Cheyne-Stocks respiration (CSR). CSR is a pattern of breathing characterized by hyperpneas followed by hypopneas and or apneas. Clinically, the physiologic changes translate to sleep fragmentation, excessive daytime sleepiness, reduced ...


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

Opiate Sleep Disordered Breathing Study

The purpose for this study is to test the hypothesis that sleep disordered breathing is more prevalent amongst a group of patients on high dose opiates for chronic pain. Aims 1. To define the prevalence of sleep disordered breathing in a group of patients on oral morphine for chronic pain. ...

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

Sleep Disordered Breathing in Patients With Chronic Heart Failure

Chronic heart failure is a complex clinical syndrome that can result from any structural or functional cardiac or non-cardiac disorder that impairs the ability of the heart to respond to physiological demands for increased cardiac output. Chronic heart failure is characterised by symptoms such as exertional breathlessness and fatigue, and ...

Phase N/A

Study of the Efficacy of the Treatment of Sleep Apnea Syndrome by CPAP in Pharmacoresistant Epilepsy

Study of the Efficacy of the Treatment of Sleep Apnea Syndrome by CPAP in Pharmacoresistant Epilepsy. The primary goal is to evaluate the efficacity after 3 months of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome treatment by CPAP on the epilepsy seizures frequency.

Phase N/A

Sleep Disordered Breathing in Precapillary Pulmonary Hypertension: Effect of CPAP Treatment

The primary endpoint of the study is to evaluate the effect of CPAP therapy on pulmonary vascular resistance in PAH and CTEPH patients suffering from sleep disordered breathing. The secondary endpoints are the effect of CPAP on right atrium and right ventricle diameter and ejection fraction measured by echocardiography, 6 ...

Phase N/A

Sleep-disordered Breathing After Solid Organ Transplantation

The primary research objective is to evaluate the prevalence, incidence and type (central or obstructive) of SDB in patients after lung transplantation. Secondary research objectives are the evaluation of correlations between severity of SDB and clinical findings (weight, medical therapy, heart function, lung function, renal function, graft failure, ). Furthermore, ...

Phase N/A

PRevalence Persistence and prOgnostic ValuE of Sleep Apnea Syndrome in Acute Heart Failure

Sleep apnea syndrome (SAS) is common in stable chronic heart failure (CHF) (60-83%) and is divided into two main types: central SAS (CSAS) and obstructive SAS (OSAS). Several studies have shown an association between SAS and HF severity and prognosis (Damy T, et al. European journal of heart failure 2012, ...
