A new deep learning algorithm can distinguish different sleep stages. The technology could help with diagnosing sleep disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea.
A new oral device, dubbed the mandibular advancement appliance, can improve the quality of sleep for those with sleep apnea. The device increases retroglossal airway space three-dimensionally.
A potential link has been identified between obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and major depressive disorder. Treating OSA may help to improve depressive symptoms, as well as reduce suicidal thoughts and improve sleep for those with insomnia.
Two existing medications have been repurposed to treat sleep apnea. Researchers report the medications reduce symptoms of sleep apnea by 30%.
A new study reports on a surprising link between OSA and Alzheimer's disease. Researchers report people who suffer a number of apneas per hour have increased accumulation of amyloid beta in the brain over time.
Fatigue associated with MS could be the result of widely undiagnosed sleep disorders, a new study reports.
A new study links sleep problems with increased biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease. Researchers discovered those who report low sleep quality, daytime sleepiness and other sleep problems had elevated levels of Alzheimer's related biomarkers in their spinal fluid than those who reported no sleep problems. However, no abnormalities were found in the spinal fluid of people with obstructive sleep apnea.
Researchers have identified a mechanism that helps rouse the brains of mice suffering from simulated sleep apnea. The findings could help develop new treatments for people with obstructive sleep apnea and provide new insights into SIDS.
Poor sleep and inadequate oxygen supply associated with obstructive sleep apnea appears to affect cytokines. This could explain the link between OSA and an increased risk of autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis.
