Resources for Patients and Caregivers
A sleep-related breathing disorder is a sleep disorder in which abnormalities in breathing occur during sleep that may or may not be present while awake.
Wiki Number: 10-Breathing-Related Sleep Disorders
Symptoms: sleep apnea, may include hyper and hypo (too much and too little) sleep, and movement disorders.
Progression: Some types of apnea are also “central apnea” where the brain “forgets” to breathe.

- Self-reported symptoms of sleep-disordered breathing and risk of cardiovascular diseases: Observational and Mendelian randomization findingsby Olga E Titova on July 23, 2022
Sleep-disordered breathing may increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases, but observational findings are inconclusive. We investigated whether sleep-disordered breathing-related symptoms are associated with risk of several cardiovascular diseases using data from a cohort study and by performing Mendelian randomization analyses. The cohort study included 43,624 adults (56-94 years old) who completed questionnaires regarding symptoms of snoring and cessation of breathing, lifestyle habits and...
- Methods for home-based self-applied polysomnography: the Multicenter AIDS Cohort Studyby Naresh M Punjabi on May 23, 2022
CONCLUSIONS: Home polysomnography was successfully completed in the MACS demonstrating its feasibility in a community cohort. Given the burden of in-lab polysomnography, the methods described herein provide a cost-effective alternative for collecting sleep data in the home.
- The Impact of Sleep-Disordered Breathing on Ghrelin, Obestatin, and Leptin Profiles in Patients with Obesity or Overweightby Piotr Pardak on April 12, 2022
CONCLUSIONS: Our results confirm the relationship between obesity and sleep-disordered breathing. Both these disorders affect ghrelin levels-parameters of obesity negatively correlate with hormone concentration, and OSA seems to lower ghrelin values in the second half of the night.
- Abnormal Sleep-Related Breathing Related to Heart Failureby Tripat Deep Singh on February 26, 2022
Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) is highly prevalent in patients with heart failure (HF). Untreated obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and central sleep apnea (CSA) in patients with HF are associated with worse outcomes. Detailed sleep history along with polysomnography (PSG) should be conducted if SDB is suspected in patients with HF. First line of treatment is the optimization of medical therapy for HF and if symptoms persist despite optimization of the treatment, positive airway pressure (PAP)...
