Individuals with obstructive sleep apnoea hypopnoea
syndrome experience frequent awakenings throughout the night as a result of blockage of the airway during sleep.
We used a change of 4% rather than an absolute value for oxygen saturation in the criteria for hypopnoea.
1) Number of obstructive apnoea, mixed apnoea and hypopnoea events per hour.
Respiratory monitoring for apnoeas (central or obstructive), hypopnoeas and oxygen desaturations was continuous for a 12-hour period on the first postoperative night.
However, in patients with chronic ventilatory failure, neuromuscular disease or chest wall disease, these changes may manifest as central apnoea or hypopnoea.
This may manifest as apparent central apnoea or hypopnoea in patients with neuromuscular disease diaphragmatic dysfunction or compromised pulmonary mechanics.
Detection of apnoeas, hypopnoeas and arousals by the AutoSet in the sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome.
Comparison of obstructive and central sleep apnoea Obstructive apnoea Central apnoea or hypopnoea or hypopnoea Signs of effort during No sign of effort apnoeas: chest wall during apnoeas movement, oesophageal pressure, pulse transit time Flow or nasal pressure Flow or nasal pressure tracing has flat tops in has round tops in inspiration (flow inspiration limitation) Oxygen saturation curve is Oxygen saturation asymmetrical with slow curve is sinusoidal decline and quick recovery Period of the apnoea Period of the cycle cycle is variable is constant Snoring is usually present Snoring is often absent
The mandibular body length, craniofacial extension, and hyoid position were especially predictive variables for night apnoea hypopnoea
4: Sleepiness, cognitive function, and quality of life in obstructive sleep apnoea/ hypopnoea syndrome.
No matter what position most patients assume, apnoeas and hypopnoeas occur only during sleep and are rapidly and fully corrected upon arousal.
While the prevalence of SDB in the general population is 5-12 per cent using an apnoea hypopnoea cut off of greater than 15, several studies in the advanced CKD patient population have shown a much higher prevalence; ranging from 18 to 80 per cent (6-10).
In general, hypopnoea reflects a reduction in airflow that does not reach the criterion for an apnoea and lasting at least 10 sec.
As one might predict, hypopnoeas
and apnoeas frequently occur at the transition from wakefulness to sleep in OSA (12,67).
Numerous markers of upper airway collapse such as snoring, apnoeas / hypopnoeas
, flow limitation and the forced oscillation technique have been utilized in devices.
