Background/Aims: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a known risk factor for chronic kidney disease (CKD); however, its association with acute kidney injury (AKI) is not well documented. We aimed to study whether OSA is associated with the risk of AKI in the intensive care unit (ICU) setting. Methods: All consecutive adult Olmsted County, MN residents...
Background - Fatigue negatively impacts on the lives of people with multiple sclerosis (MS). While primary MS-related fatigue may be difficult to treat, the authors hypothesised that secondary fatigue may respond to targeted strategies addressing causal factors such as pain, depression and sleep disturbance. Methods - A prospective, multi-centre st...

Suicide is the second leading cause of death, worldwide, for those between the ages of 24 and 44 y old. In 2013, more than 41,000 suicides occurred in the United States. These statistics underscore the need to 1) understand why people die by suicide and 2) identify risk factors that are potentially modifiable. While it has been posited that sleep d...

A subgroup of euthymic patients with bipolar disorder displayed unstable rest-activity cycles combined with mood variability and motor activity patterns that resemble findings in affective episodes.
Experimental studies disrupting sleep and epidemiologic studies of short sleep durations indicate the importance of deeper and longer sleep for cardiometabolic health. We examined the potential beneficial effects of lengthening the first uninterrupted sleep period (FUSP) on blood glucose. Long-term data (≥3 months of treatment) were derived from th...

The present study indicates that sleeping disturbances among the elderly are closely associated with social support from a spouse and family. They are also associated with pain, even at stages in which subjective bodily pain is very mild.
Sleep disturbance and long sleep duration, but not short sleep duration, are associated with increases in markers of systemic inflammation.
Canada's wind energy capacity has grown from approximately 137MW (MW) in 2000 to over 9700MW in 2014, and this progressive development has made Canada the fifth-largest market in the world for the installation of new wind turbines (WTs). Although wind energy is now one of the fastest growing sources of power in Canada and many other countries, the ...

In this study, we explored the prevalence of sleep disturbance in patients with POTS. Almost all POTS patients reported trouble with sleep and fatigue; however, there is major discrepancy between the high percentage of symptoms and small percentage of patients seeking medical assistance for better sleep quality.

Anesthetics affect various endogenous sleep-wakefulness-related substances; however, the modulation pattern may depend on the type of anesthetic. The process of postanesthetic sleep disturbance was agent specific. Our results provide fundamental evidence to treat anesthetic-related sleep disturbance.
