Summary Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) commonly occurs in patients with increased cardiovascular (CV) risk, and continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the preferred therapy for these patients. The aim of this review was to evaluate the efficacy of CPAP for CV prevention in OSA patients. We conducted a systematic review of randomized controlled trials (RCTs). Two independent reviewers explored different databases and evaluated the risk of bias. Outcomes were defined as the relative risk (RR...

Abstract Background Transbronchial lung biopsies are commonly performed for a variety of indications. While generally well tolerated, complications such as bleeding do occur. Description of bleeding severity is crucial both clinically and in research trials; to date, there is no validated scale that is widely accepted for; this purpose. Research Question Can a simple, reproducible tool for categorizing the severity of bleeding after transbronchial biopsy be created? Study Design and Methods: Usi...

Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a prevalent condition caused by dynamic upper airway collapse during sleep. The pathological impact and consequences are due to chronic intermittent hypoxia (CIH). Hypoxia increases the expression of several inflammatory stress markers and endothelial dysfunction. Recent studies suggest that patients with a similar AHI but with severe nocturnal hypoxia using oximetric parameters, such as the lowest saturation of oxygen during the night (min SaO2), perce...

There is evidence of an association between inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and lung conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This systematic review and meta-analysis explored the risk of new onset IBD in patients with COPD and new onset COPD in IBD patients. We performed a systematic review of observational studies exploring the risk of both associations. Two independent reviewers explored the EMBASE, MEDLINE, LILACS and DOAJ databases, and the risk of bias was evaluate...

Background Snoring is a main concern in patients who consult an otolaryngologist (ENT physicians) and patients who have cardiovascular comorbidities or excessive daytime sleepiness who usually consult with other specialists. The aim of this study was to describe the clinical differences in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) referred from ENT or other specialists.
