AbstractIntroduction: Recent studies have shown a strong association between insulin resistance, diabetes mellitus, and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). This association has not been previously reported in the Hispanic population. The objective of this study was to study the prevalence of diabetes in a cohort of Hispanic patients with OSA in comparison with a white cohort. Method: We performed a retrospective chart review of 103 Hispanic patients and 69 white patients with OSA. All patients had undergone full-night baseline polysomnography. We excluded charts of patients who underwent split-night studies and those who did not have rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Results: Both groups were well matched in terms of age, gender distribution, and body mass index. The prevalence of self-reported diabetes in Hispanic patients with OSA was 42.71% compared with 24.28% of whites (P = 0.005). A REM apnea hypopnea index (AHI) of > 20 was significantly associated with an increased prevalence of diabetes in the Hispanic ...

Abstract Aim This study aimed to assess the prevalence and characteristics of sleep apnoea syndrome (SAS) in patients hospitalized for poorly controlled type 2 diabetes. Methods An overnight ventilatory polygraphic study was systematically performed in 303 consecutive patients. Results Overall, 34% of these patients had mild SAS, as defined by a respiratory disturbance index (RDI) of 5–15; 19% had moderate SAS (RDI: 16–29) and 10% had severe SAS (RDI≥30). The SAS was obstructive in 99% of the ap...

Sleep profoundly affects metabolic pathways. In healthy subjects, experimental sleep restriction caused insulin resistance (IR) and increased evening cortisol and sympathetic activation. Increased obesity in subjects reporting short sleep duration leads to speculation that, during recent decades, decreased sleeping time in the general population may have contributed to the increasing prevalence of obesity. Causal inference is difficult due to lack of control for confounders and inconsistent evid...

Rationale: It is well established that sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) is independently associated with insulin resistance, glucose intolerance, and type 2 diabetes mellitus. However, data on whether SDB alters in vivo kinetics of glucose and insulin are lacking.Objectives: The primary goal of this study was to use the frequently sampled intravenous glucose tolerance test (FSIVGTT) in subjects with and without SDB to model the in vivo kinetics of glucose and insulin. Minimal model analysis of t...

AbstractObstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common sleep-related breathing disorder. Although frequently undiagnosed, OSA is highly prevalent and presents most often with excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS). While obesity is the major predisposing factor, patients with OSA and EDS are at increased risk of other conditions, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, cognitive impairment, and depression. Significant consequences include morbidity and mortality from the associated cond...

Sleep is a complex behavioral state that occupies one-third of the human life span. Although viewed as a passive condition, sleep is a highly active and dynamic process. The sleep-related decrease in muscle tone is associated with an increase in resistance to airflow through the upper airway. Partial or complete collapse of the airway during sleep can lead to the occurrence of apneas and hypopneas during sleep that define the syndrome of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea has become pervasive in Western s...

We compared blood-brain barrier (BBB) permeability to glucose between quiet wakefulness and rapid-eye-movement (REM) sleep to assess whether changes in BBB permeability play a role in coupling glucose supply to the physiologic metabolic needs of the brain. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were prepared with electrodes for wake-sleep state scoring and with arterial and venous catheters. Using the single-pass, dual-label indicator method, unidirectional glucose extraction by the brain and cerebral blood f...

Recent evidence has highlighted the health inequalities in sleep behaviors and sleep disorders that adversely affect outcomes in select populations, including African-American and Hispanic-American subjects. Race-related sleep health inequalities are ascribed to differences in multilevel and interlinked health determinants, such as sociodemographic factors, health behaviors, and biology. African-American and Hispanic-American subjects are admixed populations whose genetic inheritance combines tw...

Abstract Epidemiological data suggest that sleep apnea–hypopnea syndrome (SAHS) is independently associated with the development of insulin resistance and glucose intolerance. Moreover, despite significant methodological limitations, some studies report a high prevalence of SAHS in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2). A recent meta-analysis shows that moderate–severe SAHS is associated with an increased risk of DM2 (relative risk = 1.63 [09–2.45]), compared to the absence of apneas and ...

Resumen Diversos datos epidemiologicos muestran que el sindrome de apneas-hipopneas del sueno (SAHS) se relaciona independientemente con el desarrollo de resistencia a la insulina e intolerancia a la glucosa. Ademas, y pese a la existencia de notables limitaciones metodologicas, algunos estudios refieren una elevada prevalencia de SAHS en pacientes con diabetes tipo 2 (DM2). Un reciente metaanalisis muestra que el SAHS moderado-grave se asocia a un mayor riesgo de DM2 (riesgo relativo = 1,63 [1,...

Background: Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) occurs in over half of the estimated 5.1 million people in the U.S. diagnosed with heart failure (HF). Evidence shows that treatment of SDB in this population decreases not only morbidity and mortality rates, but the overall cost burden of the disease as well. The routine use of a sleep apnea screening protocol in the HF population can help identify patients in need of treatment. Methods: A project was conducted at an urban community heart failure cli...

Background: Heart failure can be complicated by a variety of comorbidities including sleep breathing disorder (SBD). Treatment for SBD in the heart failure patient can improve quality of life and decrease mortality. Few studies have sought to examine the reasons why patients with heart failure who screen positive for SBD do not follow through with diagnostic testing and recommendations for evidence based treatments. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to describe and compare the characteristi...

Abstract A great deal of research over the last century has focused on drowsiness/alertness detection, as fatigue-related physical and cognitive impairments pose a serious risk to public health and safety. Available drowsiness/alertness detection solutions are unsatisfactory for a number of reasons: (1) lack of generalizability, (2) failure to address individual variability in generalized models, and/or (3) lack of a portable, un-tethered application. The current study aimed to address these iss...

Sleep apnea is clinically recognized as a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by recurrent apnea and/or hypopnea. Its prevalence ranges from 4% to 24%. It has been implicated as an independent risk factor for several conditions such as hypertension, stroke, arrhythmia, and myocardial infarction. Recently data has been emerging which suggests an independent association of obstructive sleep apnea with several components of the metabolic syndrome, particularly insulin resistance and abno...
