Abstract Background The relationship between alopecia areata (AA) and sleep disorders remains uncertain. This study aims to investigate the bidirectional association between AA and sleep disorders. Methods To assess the risk of developing sleep disorders, we recruited 5,648 patients with AA and 22,592 matched controls from the National Health Insurance Research Database (NHIRD) in Taiwan. Similarly, risk of developing AA was assessed in 93,130 patients with sleep disorders (including 7,310 patie...

Abstract Objectives The present study aimed at investigating changes in waking electroencephalography (EEG), most specifically regarding spectral power and functional connectivity, in middle-aged and older adults with OSA. We also explored whether changes in spectral power or functional connectivity are associated with polysomnographic characteristics and/or neuropsychological performance. Methods 19 OSA subjects (apnea-hypopnea index ≥ 20, age: 63.6 ± 6.4) and 22 controls (apnea-hypopnea index ...

Abstract Background and Objectives Low adherence impairs the effectiveness of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), but knowledge on CPAP usage micro-patterns is mostly lacking. Thus, the aim of this study was to analyse usage micro-patterns among patients with suboptimal CPAP adherence. Methods We analysed CPAP usage datasets comprising the initial 31 nights of therapy. By employing a threshold of four hours usage in at least 70% of ...

Abstract Study objectives To investigate (1) the effect of different scoring rules on leg movement (LM) classification in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), (2) determinants of respiratory event related leg movements (rLM), and (3) to relate LM parameters to clinical outcomes. Methods (1) LM classification was compared between the WASM 2006 and the WASM 2016 rules in 336 participants with AHI ≥ 5; (2) determinants and features of rLM were investigated with logistic mixed regression in ...

Abstract Objective To evaluate the incidence of iron overload and anaphylaxis following intravenous (IV) iron treatment of restless legs syndrome (RLS). Methods 58 consecutive RLS patients, meeting clinical requirements for IV iron treatment according to current IRLSSG guidelines were recruited. IV iron treatment consisted of two 500 mg infusions of ferric carboxymaltose (FCM) administered five days apart. During each of the three follow-up visits we obtained blood samples, substantia nigra echo...

Abstract Objective The objective of this study is to emphasize the importance of the clinical suspicion of Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) among patients with chronic insomnia. Methods We conducted a retrospective study referring to the period 2009-2018. All patients presenting with the complaint of insomnia and fulfilling the criteria of Chronic Insomnia (C.I.) were enrolled. In this group we estimated how many patients finally had the diagnosis of RLS. Demographic and clinical characteristics (sl...

Abstract Objective Exploding head syndrome (EHS) is a benign sensory parasomnia characterized by the perception of loud noises or a sense of explosion in the head. Few studies have assessed clinical features and little is known about demographic differences or prevention strategies. Patients/Methods A cross-sectional study of 3286 individuals with and 2954 without lifetime EHS episodes was conducted via online questionnaires. Results Those with EHS had shorter sleep durations, longer sleep onset...
