  1. 1. Assessment of increased upper airway resistance in snorers. Methodological and diagnostic considerations

    Detta är en avhandling från Otorhinolaryngology (Lund)

    Författare :Sören Berg; [1997]
    Nyckelord :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.

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

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Malin Svensson; Eva Lindberg; Mats Holmström; Ludger Grote; [2008]
    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

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

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Helena Igelström; Pernilla Åsenlöf; Margareta Emtner; Eva Lindberg; Anders Broström; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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.

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

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Ahmed Elmasry; [2000]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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. Health‐related quality of life, depression, sleep and breathing disorders in the elderly With focus on those with impaired systolic function/heart failure

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Författare :Peter Johansson; Ulf Dahlström; Anders Broström; Urban Alehagen; Peter Währborg; [2008]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Elderly; cardiac function; chronic heart failure; health-related quality of life; depressive symptoms; prognosis; sleep disturbances; sleep disordered breathing; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : The overall aim of this thesis was to describe the prevalence of depressive symptoms, sleep disordered breathing (SDB) and sleep complaints, as well as to investigate the prognostic value of health-related quality of life (Hr-QoL) and depressive symptoms on mortality in an elderly community living population with a focus on those with impaired systolic function/heart failure (HF). Descriptive, prognostic and explorative study designs were used to examine if a single question about global perceived health (GPH) is associated with the domains of Hr-QoL as assessed by the SF-36 (I), as well as to evaluate whether GPH provided prognostic information concerning cardiovascular mortality (II).
