Background. Sleep difficulties, including insufficient sleep and inadequate sleep hygiene, have been prevalent among children. Sleep deprivation can lead to poor grades, sleepiness, and moodiness. We undertook this study to assess the prevalence of sleep abnormalities among elementary and middle school students in South Texas and how the groups compare with one another. Method. After approval from the appropriate school district for a sleep education program, a baseline survey was taken of eleme...

Study Objectives : Nocturnal bruxism is associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and GERD is strongly associated with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Gender and ethnic differences in the prevalence and clinical presentation of these often overlapping sleep disorders have not been well documented. Our aim was to examine the associations between, and the symptoms associated with, nocturnal GERD and sleep bruxism in patients with OSA, and to examine the influence of gender and ethnici...
Objectives: To study the effect of sleep center accreditation and Sleep Medicine board certifi cation of physicians on patient-centered outcomes in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Design: Prospective, multicenter, comparative effectiveness study. Setting: Four sleep centers Patients: 502 patients with OSA. Interventions: None. Measurements and Results: Patients at two accredited and two non-accredited centers underwent polysomnography at participating locations and completed validated questionnai...

Objective: To translate and validate the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) for use in Urdu-speaking population. Methods: The original Epworth Sleepiness Scale was translated into the Urdu version (ESS-Ur) in three phases - translation and back-translation; committee-based translation; and testing in bilingual individuals. The final was subsequently tested on 89 healthy bilingual subjects between February and April, 2010, to assess the validity of the translation compared to the original version. Th...

Introduction: The Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) is often used in the evaluation of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), though questions remain about the influence gender, ethnicity, and body morphometry have in the responses to this questionnaire. The aim of this study was to examine differences in ESS scores between various demographic groups of patients referred for polysomnography, and the relationship of these score to sleep-disordered breathing Methods: Nineteen hundred consecutive patients ref...

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and diabetes mellitus are both highly prevalent disorders. There has been a recent recognition of an association between insulin resistance and sleep apnea. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) has emerged as an effective therapy for treatment of OSA and has been shown to positively influence numerous pathophysiological factors that contribute to cardiovascular risk. There is emerging data that explores the influence of CPAP therapy, insulin sensitivity and gl...

Cloud computing becomes a hot research topic in the recent years. In the cloud computing, software applications and databases are moved to the centralized large data centres, which is called cloud. In the cloud, due to lack of physical possession of the data and the machine, the video and audio data’s may possess more memory space. Existing work on cloud mainly focuses on cloud storage without taking memory consumption into consideration. In this paper, we propose a new Colour Quantisation (CQ) ...

Purpose Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) remains underdiagnosed, despite our understanding of its impact on general health. Current screening methods utilize either symptoms or physical exam findings suggestive of OSA, but not both. The purpose of this study was to develop a novel screening tool for the detection of OSA, the NAMES assessment (neck circumference, airway classification, comorbidities, Epworth scale, and snoring), combining self-reported historical factors with physical exam findings.
