    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; arousals.; pharyngeal pressure; intrathoracic pressure; hypopnea; respiratory ventilation; oxygenation; Non apneic snorers; upper airway obstruction; Otorhinolaryngology; audiology; auditive system and speech; Otorinolaryngologi; audiologi; hörsel- och talorganen;

    Sammanfattning : Sleep-related partial upper airway obstruction may cause increased morbidity and mortality, but diagnosis and treatment of patients is varying and inconsistent. The present studies were aimed to evaluate presently applied indirect methods for assessing respiratory ventilation and to investigate the value and accuracy in estimating upper airway resistance during sleep by measuring intrathoracic pressure variation with a microchip catheter in the esophagus.

    Sammanfattning : Obstructive sleep apnea is associated with snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, hypertension and an increased risk of early death.The aims of the present studies were to evaluate the short-term and longterm effects on sleep apnea and the tolerability of a one-piece, individually- designed mandibular advancement device.

  3. 3. Snoring and Sleep Apnea in Women : Risk Factors, Signs and Consequences

    Författare :Malin Svensson; Eva Lindberg; Mats Holmström; Ludger Grote; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :snoring; sleep apnea; women; general population; risk factors; daytime sleepiness; inflammation; pharynx;

    Sammanfattning : Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is characterized by snoring, apneas and excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS). Obesity is a risk factor for snoring and sleep apnea, but data on other factors in relation to obesity are ambiguous. Symptoms of sleep apnea in women have not been fully elucidated. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Sleep disordered breathing : Natural evolution and metabolism

    Författare :Ahmed Elmasry; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Medical sciences; snoring; sleep apnea; epidemiology; obesity; diabetes; catecholamines; hypertension; evolution; population-based; prospective; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Sammanfattning : Sleep disordered breathing is manifested by snoring and repeated episodes of apneas and hypopneas. The induced hypoxia and sleep fragmentation are thought to be responsible for many metabolic disturbances.In 1984, 3,201 men aged 30 to 69 answered a questionnaire on snoring, sleep disorders and somatic diseases. In 1994, 2,668 of the survivors (89. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Physical Activity and Eating Behaviour Changes in Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome

    Författare :Helena Igelström; Pernilla Åsenlöf; Margareta Emtner; Eva Lindberg; Anders Broström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Obstructive sleep apnea; physical activity; eating behaviour; sedentary time; health behaviour change; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis aimed at developing and evaluating a tailored behavioural sleep medicine intervention for enhanced physical activity and healthy eating in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) and overweight.Participants with moderate or severe OSAS (apnea-hypopnea index ≥15) and obesity (Studies I-II) or overweight (Studies III-IV), treated with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) (Studies I-II) or admitted to CPAP treatment (Studies III-IV), were recruited from the sleep clinic at Uppsala University Hospital, Sweden.
