The study found OSA was associated with worse heart problems in women than men.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and insomnia are frequent sleep problems that are associated with poor prognosis in patients with coronary heart disease. The mechanisms linking poor sleep with an increased cardi…
Introduction: Overlap Syndrome (OS) is a chronic respiratory disease defined by coexistence of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). An increasing number of studies have established the presence of a link between chronic respiratory diseases and metabolic ones. No studies have been conducted to define the prevalence of diabetes mellitus 2 (DM2) in patients (pts) with OS.Aims: First, to define prevalence of DM2 in pts with OS. Second, to identify predictive parameters of DM2 in OS.Methods: We performed a retrospective analysis of the clinical records of 93 pts with diagnosis of OS. …
We examined the association between OSA and MS.Results: 1,517 between 1,600 patients were diagnosed with OSA and 54 were diagnosed with MS. The OSA patients had 38.4% with HT, 15.6% with diabetes mellitus (DM), 40.9% with hyperlipidemia (HL), 5.7% with ischemic heart disease(IHD), 0.8% with cerebrovascular disease(CVD), 3.5% with metabolic syndrome. On the other hand, the non-OSA patients had 22.9% with HT, 8.4% with DM, 27.7% with HL, 1.2% with IHD, 0% with CVD, and 1.2% with MS. MS patients were significantly higher Arousal index (45.4 ± 24.0 vs. 34.5 ± 20.8, p
The most common common risk factor for the development of Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) is central obesity. The neck circumference, waist circumference, waist / hip ratio, body mass index (BMI) and the ‘A Body Shape Index’ (ABSI) are the anthropometric measurements (APM) may use to determine OSA risk. The aim of this study is to investigate the value of anthropometric measurements in predicting CVD in cases with OSA. Overall, 745 participants who underwent polysomnography were recruited. Patients with an AHI
Conclusion: COPD expression differs between men and women, who experience more dyspnea and anxiety. Comorbidities are also different, with less diagnosed coronary heart disease and sleep apnea in women. These differences do not translate into variations in 3-year mortality rates and survival.Supported by Boehringer Ingelheim France and, up to 2015, Pfizer.
Conclusions: The effectiveness of CPAP is modest in younger patients. Long-term effectiveness is limited in older patients and in patients with heart disease (CHD or CHF).

The United States has experienced a significant increase in obesity over the past several decades, including a substantial increase in obesity-related comorbidities, such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and obstructive sleep apnea. With obesity reaching epidemic proportions, there has been an increasing need for surgical intervention as a treatment option. Bariatric procedures have not only contributed to the significant weight loss a patient may experience but they have also had a profound effect on the decrease of weight-related comorbidities.
