While the majority of the remaining cases occur in the axial skeleton (the bones of the head and trunk), there have been cases of OSA documented in extraskeletal sites including the skin and subcutaneous tissues, as well as the lungs, liver, mammary glands, and other organs and glands.
Athanasia Pataka, study's lead researcher explained, "Recent studies have shown that low blood oxygen levels during the night and disrupted sleep, are both common symptoms in OSA, which may play an important role in the biology of different types of cancers."
This study is an analytic study with a cross sectional approach, with the aim to find an association between waist circumference and the risk of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).
The combination of overnight pulse oximetry and the McGill oximetry score (MOS) is a reliable screening tool for moderate to severe OSA. [4,8,9] Overnight pulse oximetry is an accessible, simple and cost-effective alternative to PSG and may assist in prioritising children for operative interventions where resources are scarce.
If you have trouble using CPAP consistently, don't give up on treating your OSA. There are a variety of strategies to make it more comfortable and, if those don't work, other options to explore with your physician.
Evidences from the literature point towards an increased prevalence of OSA among obese patients.
17 patients (85.0%), p>0.05] between patients with moderate and severe OSA before CPAP therapy.
Finally, the STOP-Bang questionnaire exhibited superior screening ability as compared to several other related questionnaires [3], although the screening ability of the STOP-Bang questionnaire for OSA differs with differences of population characteristics [4].
Patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) are a special population receiving a loading dose of antiplatelet agents (such as aspirin and clopidogrel) before the index procedure as well as a long-term maintenance dose to avoid stent thrombosis, especially for drug-eluting stents (DESs).[7] Although the antiplatelet effect of the latter drugs might be decreased in PCI patients with OSA in possible association with higher risk of stent thrombosis, the relationship between OSA and platelet reactivity in patients undergoing DES implantation with loading doses of antiplatelet agents has not been defined and is the subject of the present study.
Besides the OSA, Pakatan Harapan had in its election manifesto promised to revamp the Whistleblower Protection Act 2010, Witness Protection Act 2009 and to enact a Freedom of Information Act.
Hence, we hypothesize that decreased NO level could be the underlying pathophysiological link for the development of IR in patients with OSA.
The choice of method of screening depends on its capabilities to accomplish certain objectives for inclusion of OSA patients for proper sleep-testing, identify patients with severe condition and exclude patients without disease or those whose evaluation for treatment is less urgent.
