Sleep-related hypoventilation describes breathing that is too slow or shallow during sleep. The first signs of hypoventilation typically occur during sleep because when we’re awake, our brain can play a more active role5 in regulating our breathing.

- Prevalences of sleep-related breathing disorders and severity factors in chronic spinal cord injury and abled-bodied individuals undergoing rehabilitation: a comparative studyby Patrícia Souza Bastos on February 29, 2024
CONCLUSIONS: Severe OSA and Central Sleep Apnea prevailed in tetraplegic participants. Sleep-related hypoventilation was more common in tetraplegics and paraplegics compared to able-bodied participants. Loud snoring and waist circumference had an impact on OSA severity in all groups. We recommend the routine implementation of transcutaneous capnography in individuals with CSCI. We underscore the significance of conducting a comprehensive sleep assessment in the rehabilitation process of...
- Validity and reliability of the Dutch version of the S3-NIV questionnaire to evaluate long-term noninvasive ventilationby Charlotte Gw Seijger on February 29, 2024
CONCLUSION: The Dutch S³-NIV questionnaire is a reliable and valid tool to evaluate symptoms, sleep, and NIV related side effects in long-term NIV users.
- A Case of Nemaline Myopathy With Sleep-Related Hypoventilation Diagnosed Using Polysomnography During Daytime Nappingby Kanako Tamura on February 26, 2024
This is the case of a 49-year-old woman who was admitted to the hospital for a close examination of pulmonary hypertension; however, the next morning, she developed carbon dioxide (CO(2)) narcosis and was started on artificial ventilation. As pulmonary arterial hypertension was ruled out, the patient was extubated, and 24-hour transcutaneous partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PCO(2))(transcutaneous carbon dioxide (TcPCO(2))) monitoring was performed to diagnose sleep-related hypoventilation....
- Modified oropharyngeal muscle training and scientific vocalization are effective in treating mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea hypoventilation syndrome in adultsby Zuofeng Huang on January 2, 2024
CONCLUSIONS AND SIGNIFICANCE: The combination of oropharyngeal muscle training and scientific vocalization for the treatment of mild to moderate OSAHS in adults significantly improves several measures used in the treatment of the condition. The method is easy to learn, effective, safe to use, and affordable. It provides more options for the treatment of OSAHS.
