Sleep-related breathing disorders in obese patients presenting with acute respiratory failure

The study was conducted to assess the clinical and polysomnographic characteristics of patients with sleep-related breathing disorders who presented to the intensive care unit (ICU) with acute respiratory failure and the practicability of performing polysomnography for such patients...

Pulmonary edema complicating ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome: low-pressure edema, high-pressure edema, or mixed edema?

BaHammam AS . Ann Saudi Med. 2005 Jul-Aug; 25(4):335-8. Comment in: RE: Pulmonary edema complicating ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome: low-pressure edema, high-pressure edema, or mixed edema? [Ann Saudi Med. 2005]....

Behaviour and time-course of sleep disordered breathing in patients with acute coronary syndromes

To our knowledge, no study has examined the persistence of sleep disordered breathing in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients. We examined the time course of SDB in ACS patients by assessing them within days of the acute event and again after 6 months. Consecutive patients with ACS were asked to voluntarily participate in the study...

Lipid peroxides, superoxide dismutase and circulating IL-8 and GCP-2 in patients with severe obstructive sleep apnea: a pilot study

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality and many other physiological and immunological disorders. An increase in hypoxia due to OSA may cause generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS are toxic to biomembranes and may lead to peroxidation of lipids...

Prevalence of sleep problems and habits in a sample of Saudi primary school children

Sleep problems in children vary not only with age, but also with ethnic and sociocultural background. No research has been conducted to assess sleep problems in Saudi elementary school children. This study surveyed parents (or guardians) abouttheir elementary school children's sleep to assess the prevalence of certain sleep problems...

Sleep in acute care units

Patients in the acute care units (ACU) are usually critically ill, making them more susceptible to the unfavorable atmosphere in the hospital. One of these unfavorable factors is sleep disruption and deprivation...

Sleep quality of patients with acute myocardial infarction outside the CCU environment: a preliminary study

Environmental factors have been implicated as major causes of sleep disruption in patients in critical care units, including coronary care units (CCU). We hypothesized that myocardial infarction may disturb sleep architecture regardless of the surrounding environmental factors...

Unusual cause of respiratory distress misdiagnosed as refractory asthma

We report a young lady, who was labeled as a case of refractory asthma for a few years, based on history of shortness of breath on minimal exertion, noisy breathing and normal chest radiograph. Repeated upper airway exam by an otolaryngologist and computerized tomography scan, were normal...

Circulating LTB4 and eotaxin-1 in stable asthmatics on inhaled corticosteroids and long acting B2 agonists

Leukotrienes B4 (LTB4) and eotaxin-1 are thought to play a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of asthma. This study investigates the plasma levels of LTB4 and eotaxin-1 in symptom-free asthmatics on inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) and long-acting β2 (LABA)...

Sleep Problems/Habits and School Performance in Elementary School Children

No previous studies have assessed the relationship between sleep problems/habits and school performance in Saudi school children. Therefore, we surveyed parents of a sample of elementary school children in Riyadh to assess the relation between sleep problems/habits and school performance in this age group...
