161. Obstructive sleep apnea

Signs and symptoms [ ] Common symptoms of OSA include unexplained daytime sleepiness, restless sleep, and loud (with periods of silence followed by gasps). Less common symptoms are morning ; insomnia; trouble concentrating; mood changes such as , and ; forgetfulness; increased heart rate and/or ; decreased sex drive; unexplained weight gain; increased urination and/or ; frequent heartburn or ; and heavy night sweats. Whereas the vast majority of patients with obstructive sleep apnea exhibit snoring (...) symptoms similarly to CPAP. Oral appliances or splints are often preferred but may not be as effective as CPAP. This device is a mouthguard similar to those used in sports to protect the teeth. It is designed to hold the lower jaw slightly down and forward relative to the natural, relaxed position. This position holds the tongue farther away from the back of the airway and may be enough to relieve apnea or improve breathing. Many people benefit from sleeping at a 30-degree elevation of the upper body

The plantar fascia contributes to support of arch of the foot by acting as a tie-rod, where it undergoes tension when the foot bears weight. One model estimated it carries as much as 14% of the total load of the foot.

Soft splints are occasionally reported to worsen discomfort related to TMD. Specific types of occlusal splint are discussed below. A stabilization splint is a hard acrylic splint that forces the teeth to meet in an "ideal" relationship for the muscles of mastication and the TMJs. It is claimed that this technique reduces (...) , these factors are poorly understood, and there is disagreement as to their relative importance. There are many treatments available, although there is a general lack of evidence for any treatment in TMD, and no widely accepted treatment protocol. Common treatments include provision of occlusal splints, psychosocial interventions like , physical therapy, and or others. Most sources agree that no irreversible treatment should be carried out for TMD. About 20% to 30% of the adult population are affected

is worn by day and at night the patient wears a semi-firm splint that keeps the arm in maximal extension. With the emergence of the one step procedures for the hand, the post-operative rehabilitation programmes became even more important, since early movement is essential. Patients are mobilised 24 hrs post-operatively, with protective splints. The regimen takes approximately 12 weeks, before the hand is allowed to be fully loaded. Patients are not required to stay as an in-patient for the entire (...) splints. In the early 1940s, a surgeon called Sterling Bunnell (1882–1957) was probably one of the first to refer to the reconstruction of gripping function for the tetraplegic hand. He described surgeries of combining tenodeses and tendon transfers to restore hand function. He also advocated transferring the m. brachioradialis to the wrist extensors when these muscles are paralyzed. In the 1950s, understanding of the tenodesis effect (See ) influenced the development of surgical techniques

In this syndrome, decreased sensation and loss of reflexes occurs first in the toes on each foot, then extends upward.

Genu valgum (being knock-kneed) - this is usually benign and normally resolves by the age of 5-8 years; surgery may be appropriate if the condition is persistent by age 10 years.

[ ] A department of neurophysiology will be able to arrange nerve conduction studies. High-contrast ultrasound helps to identify the location, severity and cause of the condition. In some cases it may be more useful than nerve conduction studies. MRI scan may help to visualise a lesion such as a ganglion or a lipoma.

Night splints to keep the ankle dorsiflexed and the toes extended can help to stretch the plantar fascia and may induce faster healing.
