This work is intended to study respiratory function during sleep in positive Covid patients in order to evaluate the presence of sleep apnea syndrome as risk factor that predispose to Covid infection. Data shows that the comorbidities in Covid patients are obesity, hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. The reason consists in snoring; the vibrations of the soft walls cause an inflammation of the upper airways, over time increasing inflammation, respiratory events increase. We have s...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship of regional selectivity in coronary arteries with OSAS severity using the Syntax (SX) score in OSAS (Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome) patients. This retrospective study included 68 OSAS patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) who were followed up at Cardiology and Neurology Outpatient Clinic in our hospital between January 2019 and October 2020. Patients with previously diagnosed OSAS were separated into 2 groups as mild-moderate OSAS g...

Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS) is a consequence of a reduced area at the upper respiratory tract that leads to obstruction and cessation of airflow, causing oxygen desaturation and fragmentation of the sleep architecture. Between 60 and 70% of patients with OSAS are obese. We present a longitudinal, prospective, observational and analytical study. A sample of 89 patients with a polysomnographic diagnosis of OSAS was studied. The following anthropometric variables were determined: Neck C...

Sleep disruption is prevalent in older patients. No previous studies have considered the impact of surgery duration or surgery end time of day on postoperative sleep disruption. Accordingly, we examined the duration of surgery and surgery end times for associations with postoperative sleep disruption. Inclusion criteria were patients ≥ 65 years of age undergoing major, non-cardiac surgery. Sleep disruption was measured by wrist actigraphy and defined as wake after sleep onset (WASO) during the...
