RESUMO

The provision of dental sleep medicine (DSM) has caused the rapid growth and expansion of an industry that includes health care providers, manufacturers, and retailers. Sleep is used as a vital sign by health care providers to screen and test for sleep disorders and to prevent future health issues, disease, and catastrophic events. Professional services and devices continue to be developed to enhance and foster better sleep hygiene and environment and to encourage improved sleep by building a comprehensive portfolio of sleep solutions, including DSM. However, the provision of DSM requires compliance with applicable state and federal regulations.

RESUMO

PURPOSE: To explore final-year medical students' perceptions of sleep education during medical school to inform the development of a sleep curriculum. METHODS: Year 6 medical students on their final general practice placement in 2020 were invited to complete an online survey including questions regarding sleep education recalled during the medical programme. RESULTS: Responses were received from 51/71 (72 %) students. Main learning topics recalled by participants were sleep apnoea (83 %), sleep physiology (71 %), and snoring (69 %). Education in other topics was reported by <65 % of students. Priority topics for students were treating common sleep disorders, taking a sleep history, and navigating shift work. CONCLUSIONS: Whilst the majority of students recalled education on specific topics, many had little awareness of education relating to sleep assessment, insomnia, or shift work. Sleep education in the curriculum needs more emphasis and reinforcement given sleep's relevance across many domains of health and morbidity. We propose that an identifiable sleep curriculum is required to ensure medical students have the necessary core education regarding sleep and sleep disorders both for patients and themselves. Further, we believe this is possible to achieve in a short timeframe within the constraints of an existing curriculum and propose some creative solutions.

RESUMO

STUDY OBJECTIVES: As in many other Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) around the world, sleep disorders in the Kyrgyz Republic remain mostly undiagnosed and untreated. This article aims to describe the current state of practice of sleep medicine in the Kyrgyz Republic from the perspective of local and international health care workers who are active in the field and to propose a strategy to challenge the status quo. METHODS: We performed a policy analysis and interviewed local doctors working in the field. RESULTS: We identified 3 major barriers to the practice of sleep medicine and namely education and training, financial constraints and infrastructure and equipment. We then propose a multistep strategy to improve the current situation based on 3 pillars: knowledge sharing, implementation research activities and policy changes. CONCLUSIONS: Despite being at its early days and facing major challenges, sleep health in the Kyrgyz Republic is being recognized as a priority by health care workers in the field and now requires attention at local and government level. Furthermore, north-south academic partnerships represent an effective tool for knowledge sharing and should be further incentivised. CITATION: Cirri L, Bolotbek uulu A, Shakiev N, et al.

RESUMO

STUDY OBJECTIVES: In this study we aimed to conduct a comprehensive review of sleep medicine in Iran, focusing on the country's advancements, challenges, and the global context. METHODS: We conducted a comprehensive review of sleep medicine in Iran, using various sources to ensure a thorough analysis. The national educational curriculum for sleep medicine and guidelines on sleep clinics issued by Iran's Ministry of Health served as a foundational resource. Additionally, we gathered information from the Iranian Sleep Medicine Society website and relevant committee data sources. To enhance our understanding of the current research landscape, we performed a targeted search on PubMed using keywords related to sleep and Iran. RESULTS: The study presents a dynamic overview of sleep medicine in Iran, highlighting key advancements and challenges. Significant progress was observed in establishing standardized sleep medicine training and accredited sleep clinics. The Iranian Sleep Medicine Society plays a pivotal role in spearheading these developments, contributing to implementing regional guidelines for sleep tests. However, challenges such as a limited number of trained specialists, a scarcity of certified sleep clinics, and obstacles to accessing sleep disorder treatments were identified. CONCLUSIONS: We advocate for the implementation of increased research initiatives, nationwide education and screening programs, and proactive measures to strengthen the landscape of sleep and circadian medicine in the country.

RESUMO

Over the past few years, artificial intelligence (AI) has emerged as a powerful tool used to efficiently automate several tasks across multiple domains. Sleep medicine is perfectly positioned to leverage this tool due to the wealth of physiological signals obtained through sleep studies or sleep tracking devices and abundance of accessible clinical data through electronic medical records. However, caution must be applied when utilizing AI, due to intrinsic challenges associated with novel technology. The Artificial Intelligence in Sleep Medicine Committee of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine reviews advancements in AI within the sleep medicine field. In this article, the Artificial Intelligence in Sleep Medicine committee members provide a commentary on the scope of AI technology in sleep medicine. The commentary identifies 3 pivotal areas in sleep medicine that can benefit from AI technologies: clinical care, lifestyle management, and population health management. This article provides a detailed analysis of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats associated with using AI-enabled technologies in each pivotal area. Finally, the article broadly reviews barriers and challenges associated with using AI-enabled technologies and offers possible solutions. CITATION: Bandyopadhyay A, Oks M, Sun H, et al.

RESUMO

Wearable sleep trackers are increasingly used in applied psychology. Particularly, the recent boom in the fitness tracking industry has resulted in a number of relatively inexpensive consumer-oriented devices that further enlarge the potential applications of ambulatory sleep monitoring. While being largely positioned as wellness tools, wearable sleep trackers could be considered useful health devices supported by a growing number of independent peer-reviewed studies evaluating their accuracy. The inclusion of sensors that monitor cardiorespiratory physiology, diurnal activity data, and other environmental signals allows for a comprehensive and multidimensional approach to sleep health and its impact on psychological well-being. Moreover, the increasingly common combination of wearable trackers and experience sampling methods has the potential to uncover within-individual processes linking sleep to daily experiences, behaviors, and other psychosocial factors. Here, we provide a concise overview of the state-of-the-art, challenges, and opportunities of using wearable sleep-tracking technology in applied psychology. Specifically, we review key device profiles, capabilities, and limitations. By providing representative examples, we highlight how scholars and practitioners can fully exploit the potential of wearable sleep trackers while being aware of the most critical pitfalls characterizing these devices. Overall, consumer wearable sleep trackers are increasingly recognized as a valuable method to investigate, assess, and improve sleep health. Incorporating such devices in research and professional practice might significantly improve the quantity and quality of the collected information while opening the possibility of involving large samples over representative time periods. However, a rigorous and informed approach to their use is necessary. (AU)

RESUMO

The increased recognition of sleep-wake disorders and their effects, along with the anticipated shortage of sleep medicine specialists, heralds a concomitant need to have more health care providers with dedicated training in the evaluation and management of sleep disorders across the life span. A narrative review of published literature on sleep education was conducted and identified factors related to diversity within the sleep team, barriers to implementation of sleep education, and strides in sleep education. Implementation of novel sleep education strategies will require creative navigation of barriers such as allocation of curricular time, availability of teaching faculty, and funding to train more members of the sleep team. Deliberate coordination within and across health professions programs, with efforts to share resources and leverage technology, will be instrumental to guide the next phase of growth in sleep education.

RESUMO

Diagnoses of military-relevant sleep disorders have increased substantially since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The cause of this increase appears to be complicated and multifactorial, with military and civilian populations clearly differing with respect to both the nature and distribution of sleep disorders diagnoses. In part, these differences may be attributable to the fact that a majority of service members are chronically sleep-restricted-an unavoidable consequence of continuous and sustained military operations that "set the stage" for development of specific sleep disorders. The purpose of this narrative review is to describe the military relevance of several common sleep disorders, assess the extent to which these disorders currently constitute a burden on the military health care system, and suggest strategies to alleviate that burden. The military health care system does not have enough sleep medicine providers to address the immediate and long-term consequences of sleep disorders in military personnel. Digital technologies and education packages can be leveraged to improve access to care. CITATION: Thomas CL, Carr K, Yang F, et al.

RESUMO

This is a narrative review of sleep disorders, especially chronic insomnia, as a primary diagnosis or as a comorbid diagnosis associated with different psychiatric and organic diseases. The epidemiological evidence is reviewed, the diagnostic criteria most frequently used in clinical practice are examined, and a series of therapeutic recommendations for the correct treatment of this pathology is presented. Sleep disorders are very prevalent in the general population (one-third experiences difficulty with sleep initiation/maintenance at least once a week, and about 6–15% meet the criteria for insomnia disorders), but remain relatively poorly understood and frequently overlooked by healthcare professionals. Prevalence estimates of insomnia disorder vary between 5% and 20%. Sleep disorders co-exist with psychiatric and medical conditions with an interactive and bidirectional relationship. About 70–80% of psychiatric patients show some sleep disturbance and there is a correlation between the severity of the sleep disturbance and the severity of the psychopathology. Untreated sleep disorders increase the risk of cardiovascular events, cognitive impairment, motor vehicle accidents, obesity, diabetes, and efficiency and safety at work, leading to increased all-cause healthcare utilization and being a strong predictor of sick leave or disability pension and poor quality of life. Sleep disorders can cause drowsiness or excessive daytime sleepiness, which can lead to functional impairment in 15% of the general adult population. Sleep quality should be a routine target in the evaluation of patients with psychiatric and non-psychiatric diseases to ensure sleep health based on early diagnosis and adequate therapeutic approaches.

RESUMO

Objective To evaluate the association between results from drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) and computed tomography with lateral cephalometry (CTLC) of the pharynx in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients, regarding the same anatomic level, in order to understand if CTLC could replace DISE in selected patients. Study design Cross-sectional. Setting Tertiary hospital. Methods A total of 71 patients who attended the Sleep Medicine Consultation in the Otorhinolaryngology Department of Hospital CUF Tejo between 1.6.2019 and 30.9.2021, performed a polysomnographic sleep study and were elected to undergo DISE and CTLC of the pharynx for diagnostic purposes were selected. Obstructions at the same anatomic levels – tongue base, epiglottis and velum - were compared in both exams. Results Patients with reduction of epiglottis-pharynx space on CTLC had also a complete obstruction at epiglottis level on the VOTE classification of DISE (p = 0,027). Reduction of velum-pharynx space or tongue base-pharynx space were not related to complete obstruction of the velum (P = 0,623) or the tongue base (p = 0,594) found in DISE. Those with two or more space reductions had a tendency to multilevel obstruction observed in DISE (p = 0.089). Conclusion When evaluating the obstruction level(s) of an OSA patient, efforts should be made to perform DISE, since CTLC measures, though regarding at the same structures, don´t correlate completely with obstructions observed in DISE.

Objetivo Evaluar la asociación entre los resultados de la endoscopia del sueño inducida por fármacos (DISE) y la tomografía computarizada con cefalometría lateral (TCCL) de faringe en pacientes con apnea obstructiva del sueño (AOS), en el mismo nivel anatómico, para comprender si la TCCL podría reemplazar DISE en pacientes seleccionados. Diseño del estudio Transversal. Lugar Hospital de tercer nivel. Métodos Un total de 71 pacientes que acudieron a la Consulta de Medicina del Sueño en el Servicio de Otorrinolaringología del Hospital CUF Tejo entre el 1.6.2019 y el 30.9.2021, a los que se les había realizado un estudio polisomnográfico del sueño y fueron elegidos para realizar DISE y TCCL de faringe con fines diagnósticos, fueron seleccionados. Las obstrucciones en los mismos niveles anatómicos (base de la lengua, epiglotis y velo) se compararon en ambos exámenes. Resultados Los pacientes con reducción del espacio epiglotis-faringe en TCCL también tenían una obstrucción completa a nivel de epiglotis en la clasificación VOTE de DISE (p = 0,027). La reducción del espacio velo-faringe o base de la lengua-faringe no se relacionó con la obstrucción completa del velo (P = 0,623) o de la base de la lengua (p = 0,594) encontrada en DISE. Aquellos con dos o más reducciones de espacio presentaron tendencia a la obstrucción multinivel observada en DISE (p = 0,089). Conclusión Al evaluar el o los niveles de obstrucción de un paciente con AOS, se debe intentar realizar DISE, ya que las medidas de TCCL, aunque se refieren a las mismas estructuras, no se correlacionan completamente con las obstrucciones observadas en DISE.

RESUMO

Humans spend one third of their life sleeping. Sleep, a vital life process, is an essential part of human health. In response to people's growing needs concerning sleep health, sleep medicine was born and is growing rapidly, and there is also an upsurge in the construction of sleep medicine centers in China and other countries. Unfortunately, there are no Chinese standards available for the construction of sleep medicine centers and the sleep medicine centers already constructed are of varied quality. In view of this academic problem, Professor Lu Lin, an academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences and the president of Peking University Sixth Hospital, organized Chinese experts with outstanding achievements in the field of sleep medicine to draft "Guideline for the Standardized Construction of Sleep Medicine Centers in China". This guideline mainly introduces the overall status of standardized construction of sleep medicine centers and the status of the construction of specialized sleep medicine centers in China, aiming to guide the construction of high-quality and high-standard sleep medicine centers in China, to promote the development of sleep medicine, and to safeguard people's sleep health.

RESUMO

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) remains a highly prevalent disorder that can lead to multiple adverse outcomes when undiagnosed and/or when left untreated. There continue to be gaps and variations in the provision of care for the adult patient population with OSA, which emphasizes the importance of the measure maintenance initiative for The Quality Measures for the Care of Adult Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (originally developed in 2015). The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) convened the Quality Measures Task Force in 2018 to review the current medical literature, other existing quality measures focused on the same patient population, and any performance data or data in the medical literature that show gaps or variations in care, to inform potential revisions to the quality measure set. These revised quality measures will be implemented in the AASM Sleep Clinical Data Registry (Sleep CDR) to capture performance data and encourage continuous improvement in outcomes associated with diagnosing and managing OSA in the adult population.
