Abstract Objective Brain iron deposition in hemodialysis (HD) patients increases over time. Iron deficiency in gray matter nuclei has been reported to lead to idiopathic restless legs syndrome (RLS) symptoms. Regardless of unpleasant RLS sensations, the patterns of iron deposition between hemodialysis patients with RLS (HD-RLS) and hemodialysis patients without RLS (HD-nRLS) are still unclear. To evaluate the differences in iron deposition patterns between HD-RLS and HD-nRLS patients, we utilize...

Abstract Objectives Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a common neurological disorder but it is not sufficiently recognized in children and adolescents. It often overlaps with growing pains in children, and as a result the clinical characteristics of pediatric RLS are not well studied, especially in Asia. The purpose of this study is to investigate the clinical characteristics of pediatric RLS patients in Korea and compare it to those of adult RLS patients. Methods We retrospectively reviewed the m...

Abstract Objective To investigate the validity of the Brief Infant Sleep Questionnaire (BISQ), in assessing sleep quality in childhood. Methods Validation study with children from the Pelotas 2015 Birth Cohort. BISQ was applied to mothers when their children were 3, 6, 12, and 24 months of age. The poor sleep indicators analysed, as defined by BISQ, were > 3 wakings per night, nocturnal wakefulness > 1 hour and total sleep duration Results 586 children were enrolled in the study. Nocturnal wakef...
Abstract Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has many effects on subjective parameters of the disease, such as reduction in quality of life (QoL), sleep quality (SQ), and increases in daytime sleepiness. Studies have reported the beneficial effect of exercise training on OSA severity; however, whether it improves subjective parameters remains unclear. The purpose of the present review was to investigate the effect of exercise training on QoL, daytime sleepiness, and SQ in adults with OSA by summarizin...

Abstract Background We determined the relationships among the subjective symptoms of sleep apnea and daytime sleepiness, depressive symptoms, and anxiety in adults with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Methods We developed the Subjective Apnea Severity Questionnaire (SASQ) to measure subjective OSA symptoms during the night and on waking in the morning. Construct validity and reliability were assessed. The Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), and State Scale of State Tr...

Abstract Study Objectives To analyze the association between sleep-related symptoms and sleep length in parents and offspring in relation to other risk factors in both generations. Method The participants were parents (n=5,855, age 54.3 + 6.5 years, 45.2% men) who participated in the community-based RHINE study and one random member of their adult offspring (n=5,855, age 30.2 + 7.7 years, 41.5% men) who participated in the RHINESSA study. Both generations responded to identical questionnaires on...

Abstract Objective To assess the effectiveness and safety of Zao Ren An Shen (ZRAS), a Chinese herbal medicine formula, for the treatment of insomnia. Methods Seven databases, i.e. EMBASE, PubMed, the Cochrane library, and PsycINFO, Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure, Wanfang and Chongqing VIP, were searched from their inception to the 6 November 2018. Controlled trials comparing the effectiveness or safety of ZRAS to conventional treatments, a placebo or no-treatment in an insomnia popul...

Abstract Study Objective To develop an algorithm for improving apnea hypopnea index (AHI) estimation which includes event by event validation and event duration estimation. The algorithm uses breathing sounds, respiratory related movements and blood oxygen saturation (SaO2). Methods Adults with suspected sleep apnea underwent overnight polysomnography (PSG) at Toronto Rehabilitations Institute. Simultaneously with PSG, breathing sounds and respiratory related movements were recorded over the sup...

Abstract Objective /Background: Evidence on sex differences in the association between obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and cardiovascular outcomes is limited and controversial. We conducted a historical cohort study to investigate this relationship. Patients/Methods Clinical data on adults who underwent sleep study at a large urban academic hospital (Toronto, Canada) between 1994 and 2010 were linked to provincial health administrative data from 1991 to 2015. We fit Cox regressions to investigate ...

Abstract Objectives Previous studies comparing objective sleep measures between patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and control participants were limited by their small sample size. The purpose of this study was to compare objective sleep measures between large-scale cohorts of PD outpatients and community-based older adults. Methods In this cross-sectional study, we measured sleep parameters for 157 PD patients using an actigraph on the non-dominant wrist for six consecutive nights (95 Hoehn...
