Effects of Patient-Directed Interactive Music Therapy on Sleep Quality in Postoperative Elderly Patients: A Randomized-Controlled Trial
November 7, 2021
0
0
Main idea: Single IMT intervention improved subjectively assessed short-term sleep quality in postoperative elderly patients. It is difficult to conclude whether music therapy intervention affects the level of melatonin and cortisol. Abstract This study aimed to investigate the effects of patient-directed interactive music on saliva melatonin levels and sleep quality among postoperative elderly patients in […]

Optimal Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea Reduces Daytime Resting Heart Rate in Prediabetes: A Randomized Controlled Study
November 7, 2021
0
0
Main idea: This proof-of-concept randomized controlled study demonstrates, for the first time, that CPAP treatment, when optimally used at night, reduces resting heart rate during the day, and, therefore, has positive cardiovascular carry over effects. These findings suggest that better identification and treatment of OSA may have important clinical implications for cardiovascular disease prevention. Abstract […]

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Does Not Improve Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease in Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea. A Randomized Clinical Trial
November 7, 2021
0
0
Main idea: Despite significant correlations between hepatic steatosis and markers of severity of obstructive sleep apnea, continuous positive airway pressure alone did not improve hepatic steatosis and fibrosis. However, the additional role of weight reduction through lifestyle modification deserves further investigation. Abstract Rationale: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with the development of nonalcoholic fatty […]

The Incidence of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Is Increased In Patients With Obstructive Sleep Apnea
November 7, 2021
0
0
Main idea: The incidence of non-Hodgkin lymphoma among patients with OSA was significantly higher than that among the controls. In particular, the incidence was higher in women than that in men. There was no difference in hazard ratio by age. In conclusion, OSA may be a risk factor for non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Abstract Obstructive sleep apnea […]

Olfactory Function in Patients With Obstructive Sleep Apnea: A Meta-Analysis Study
November 7, 2021
0
0
Main idea: The comparison between OSA patients and healthy subjects using Sniffin’ Sticks test showed lower values of the various olfactory parameters. Although a linear correlation between AHI increase and olfactory dysfunction was observed, no statistical difference between mild-moderate and severe OSA patients in terms of the severity of olfactory dysfunction could be proved. Abstract […]

0
0
Main idea: The present study confirms that Ashwagandha root extract can improve sleep quality and can help in managing insomnia. Ashwagandha root extract was well tolerated by all the participants irrespective of their health condition and age. Additional clinical trials are required to generalize the outcome. Abstract Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera (L.) Dunal.) is long known […]

The fMRI Study for Acupuncture on Shift Work Sleep Disorder: Study Protocol for a Randomized Controlled Neuroimaging Trial
November 7, 2021
0
0
Main idea: The results of this study will enable us to verify the therapeutic effect of acupuncture on shift work disorder and explore the potential central mechanism of acupuncture on shift work disorder from the change of brain activity. Abstract Nearly 20% of night shift nurses have shift work disorder (SWD) due to the disruption […]
