alcohol consumption or pain). In patients reporting excessive daytime sleepiness, consider obstructivesleepapnoea. Do not use sleep restriction strategies with patients who have bipolar disorder as this can precipitate manic episodes.

Indication Chronic primary insomnia in adults Primary insomnia is defined as repeated difficulty with sleep initiation, duration, consolidation or quality despite adequate time and opportunity for sleep, lasting for at least a month.

BACKGROUND Insomniadisorder is defined in the International Classification of SleepDisorders, Third Edition as a complaint of trouble initiating or maintaining sleep which is associated with daytime consequences and is not attributable to environmental circumstances or inadequate opportunity to sleep. The disorder is identified as chronic when it has persisted for at least three months (...) for treatment of chronic insomnia in the adult populations regardless of comorbidities. In summary, the analysis indicates moderate and significant improvement in major sleep parameters with both BZDs and BzRAs in both objective (PSG) and subjective (sleep diary) assessments, with the exception of PSG results for wake after sleep onset (WASO) and TST, which yielded results just below the range of significance. Far fewer studies were available for antidepressants. These showed significant reduction in sleep

Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN; 7 American Academy of Sleep Medicine, Darien, IL ABSTRACT Introduction: This guideline establishes clinical practice recommendations for the diagnosis of obstructivesleepapnea (OSA) in adults and is intended for use in conjunction with other American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) guidelines on the evaluation and treatment of sleep-disorderedbreathing in adults. Methods: The AASM commissioned a task force of experts in sleep medicine. A systematic review (...) -determined obstructive respiratory disturbance index (RDI) ≥ 5 events/h associated with the typical symptoms of OSA (e.g., unrefreshing sleep, daytime sleepiness, fatigue or insomnia, awakening with a gasping or choking sensation, loud snoring, or witnessed apneas), or an obstructive RDI ≥ 15 events/h (even in the absence of symptoms). In addition to apneas and hypopneas that are included in the AHI, the RDI includes respiratory effort-related arousals (RERAs). The scoring of respiratory events
a general introduc- tion to circadian biology, addresses “exogenous” circadian rhythm sleepdisorders, including shift work disorder (SWD) and jet lag disorder (JLD). The second review paper addresses the “endogenous” circadian rhythm sleepdisorders, including advanced sleep phase disorder (ASPD), de- layed sleep phase disorder (DSPD), irregular sleep-wake rhythm (ISWR), and the non–24-hour sleep-wakesyndrome (nonentrained type) or free- running disorder (FRD). These practice parameters were developed (...) for sleep related complaints. For example, shift workers with hypersomnia may have both suspected obstructivesleepapnea and clinical characteristics consistent with shift work dis- order. In this event, PSG is indicated to evaluate and establish appropriate therapy for OSA. 3.2 Recommendations for Evaluation and Treatments of Circadian Rhythm SleepDisorders 3.2.1 Shift Work Disorder Shift work refers to non-standard work schedules, including permanent or intermittent night work, early morning work

Hypoglossal nerve stimulation for obstructivesleepapnea: A review of the literature To review the indications and clinical evidence supporting hypoglossal nerve stimulation (HNS) therapy for the treatment of moderate-to-severe obstructivesleepapnea (OSA).Peer reviewed literature on hypoglossal nerve stimulation therapy for obstructivesleepapnea from 2001 to 2016.The only currently FDA-approved HNS device for the treatment of moderate-to-severe OSA is produced by Inspire Medical Systems (...) , which recently published its 36-month outcomes data from its Stimulation Therapy for Apnea Reduction (STAR) trial. HNS therapy is currently indicated for moderate-to-severe OSA patients who are CPAP-intolerant, have a body mass index <32, apnea-hypopnea index <50, and without a concentric pattern of upper airway collapse on sleep endoscopy.Data from the STAR trial suggests that a subset of OSA patients can achieve a significant therapeutic response from hypoglossal nerve stimulation.

Sleepapnoea and stroke Sleepdisorders have been known to physicians for a long time. In his famous aphorisms, Hippocrates said "Sleep or watchfulness exceeding that which is customary, augurs unfavorably". Modern medicine has been able to disentangle some of the phenomena that disturb sleep. Among the most notable offenders is sleepapnoea that has gained prominence in the past few decades. It is being proposed as one of the potentially modifiable risk factors for vascular diseases including (...) stroke. The pathological mechanisms linking sleepapnoea to vascular risk factors include hypoxia, cardiac arrhythmias, dysautonomia, impaired glucose tolerance, hypertension, dyslipidaemia and inflammation. In this article, we review literature linking sleepapnoea and stroke, including sleepapnoea as a risk factor for primary prevention with the potential to improve outcome after acute stroke and as a secondary risk factor, amenable to modification and hence vascular risk reduction.
