  • Sleep Disorders In Cystic Fibrosis: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 19 February 2020Source: Sleep Medicine ReviewsAuthor(s): Joel Reiter, Alex Gileles-Hillel, Malena Cohen-Cymberknoh, Dennis Rosen, Eitan Kerem, David Gozal, Erick FornoSummaryCystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that leads to airway mucus accumulation, chronic inflammation, and recurrent respiratory infections – all likely impacting sleep. However, controlled studies of sleep in CF patients are limited, and have shown mixed results. We reviewed all publications on CF and sleep indexed in PubMed, CINAHL, and Scopus through April 2019. In the meta-analysis, we calculated pooled weighted mean differences for sleep quality, sleepiness, oximetry, and polysomnographic (PSG) parameters, using fixed or random-effects models as appropriate. A total of 87 manuscripts were reviewed. Compared to controls, children with CF had lower nighttime oxygen saturation nadirs, decreased sleep efficiency and a higher respiratory event index, with no differences in the percentage of REM sleep. Adults with CF had lower oxygen saturation nadirs, with a trend towards reduced sleep efficiency and no differences in REM sleep. In addition, patients with CF cough more during sleep and experience painful events that interfere with sleep. Actigraphy and questionnaires suggest disturbed sleep and daytime sleepiness. Noninvasive ventilation appears to improve gas exchange and symptoms.We conclude that when sleep is evaluated objectively or subjectively in patients with CF, perturbations are common, emphasizing the importance of their identification and treatment and inclusion as part of routine care. Additional research, with larger sample sizes and standardized outcomes, are necessary.
       
  • The Economic and Societal Burden of Excessive Daytime Sleepiness in
           Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 17 February 2020Source: Sleep Medicine ReviewsAuthor(s): Damien Leger, Carl StepnowskySummaryExcessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) is common in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and continues to persist in many patients despite adequate OSA treatment. EDS in OSA is associated with decreased quality of life (QOL) as well as increased societal burden, which may impact health care utilization and costs. However, economic burden is often not the primary focus in the treatment of EDS in OSA. This targeted literature review aimed to examine the published literature on the economic burden of EDS in OSA. This review identified available literature using a targeted PubMed search strategy using search terms related to EDS in OSA in adults. Results demonstrate that there are few studies that detailed the direct costs associated with EDS in OSA, though several studies indicated an association between EDS in OSA and indirect economic burdens, including motor vehicle accidents (MVAs), near misses, work productivity, mood, and QOL. Data from the literature confirmed that persistent EDS in OSA following continuous positive airway pressure persists in 12% to 65% of patients. Future studies should further describe the direct costs of EDS in OSA, quantify the cost associated with MVAs and lost work productivity, and detail QOL and social impacts of the condition.

  • Failure of fear extinction in insomnia: an evolutionary perspective
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 13 February 2020Source: Sleep Medicine ReviewsAuthor(s): Lampros Perogamvros, Anna Castelnovo, David Samson, Thien Thanh Dang-VuSummaryThe pathophysiology of insomnia remains poorly understood, yet emerging cross-disciplinary approaches integrating natural history, observational studies in traditional populations, gene-phenotype expression and experiments, are opening up new avenues to investigate the evolutionary origins of sleep disorders, with the potential to inform innovations in treatment. Previous authors have supported that acute insomnia is a normal biopsychosocial response to a perceived or real threat and may thus represent an adaptive response to stress. We further extend this hypothesis by claiming that insomnia reflects a fear-related evolutionary survival mechanism, which becomes persistent in some vulnerable individuals due to failure of the fear extinction function. Possible treatments targeting fear extinction are proposed, such as pharmacotherapy and emotion-based cognitive behavioral therapy.

  • Sleep’s impact on emotional recognition memory: A meta-analysis of
           whole-night, nap, and REM sleep effects
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 12 February 2020Source: Sleep Medicine ReviewsAuthor(s): Sarah K. Schäfer, Benedikt E. Wirth, Marlene Staginnus, Nicolas Becker, Tanja Michael, M. Roxanne SoppSummaryNumerous studies have shown that post-learning sleep enhances visual episodic recognition memory. However, it remains unclear whether this consolidation benefit is moderated by the emotional valence of the learned material. To clarify whether sleep selectively enhances memory for emotional material, we conducted a meta-analysis including N=1,059 post-sleep/wake observations. Overall, our results do not support this hypothesis. When only studies with a sleep group/wake group comparison were included in the analysis (k=22), the retention advantage for emotional (negative/positive) over neutral material was not significantly different between sleep and wake groups. When studies without wake groups were included in the analysis after statistical estimation of wake-group parameters, the retention advantage for emotional material was significantly larger in wake groups than in sleep groups (k=34). Interestingly, however, an additional analysis of eight studies investigating the selective effects of rapid-eye-movement sleep and slow-wave sleep on post-interval emotional memory provided evidence for a selective enhancement of emotional over neutral memory performance after rapid-eye-movement sleep compared to slow-wave sleep. These findings suggest that sleep does not generally enhance visual recognition memory for emotional stimuli. However, the result pattern is consistent with the idea that specific sleep stages preferentially enhance consolidation of emotional and neutral material, respectively.
       
  • Sleep during development: sex and gender differences

Sleep modifications parallel brain development during childhood. Sex and gender differences have been reported in brain development and many clinical and psychosocial conditions. This narrative review provides insight into the differences between girls and boys in terms of brain maturation and plasticity related to sleep and sleep characteristics (physiology, sleep duration) during development.
       
  • The Role of Tissue Biopsy as a Biomarker in REM Sleep Behavior Disorder
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 11 February 2020Source: Sleep Medicine ReviewsAuthor(s): Jennifer Zitser, Christopher Gibbons, Mitchell G. MiglisSummaryPatients with idiopathic REM-sleep behavior disorder (iRBD) are at substantial risk of progressive neurodegenerative disease of α-synuclein pathology. Longitudinal studies have demonstrated that abnormal α-synuclein deposition occurs early in the course of disease and may precede the appearance of motor symptoms by several decades. This provides rationale for the use of a reliable biomarker to both follow disease progression and to assess treatment response, once disease-modifying treatments become available. Tissue α-synuclein has emerged as a promising candidate, however the utility of α-synuclein detection in tissues accessible to biopsy in iRBD remains unclear. This article summarizes the current literature on the role of tissue biopsy in iRBD, with specific focus on its potential role as a biomarker of disease progression and its role in future clinical trials.
       
  • Sleep in the anxiety-related disorders: A meta-analysis of subjective and
           objective research
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 11 February 2020Source: Sleep Medicine ReviewsAuthor(s): Rebecca C. Cox, Bunmi O. OlatunjiSummaryAlthough sleep disturbance is implicated in psychopathology, its role in anxiety-related disorders remains unclear. The present meta-analysis characterizes sleep disturbance in anxiety-related disorders collectively and individually. Subjective measures of total sleep time and sleep continuity were included with objective measures. Results indicate a large effect for increased subjective sleep disturbance (g = 2.16), medium effects for decreased total sleep time (g = -.40) and sleep continuity (g = -.49), and a small effect for decreased sleep depth (g = -.20) in anxiety-related disorders compared to healthy controls. Each anxiety-related disorder exhibited a distinct sleep disturbance pattern, suggesting that sleep may facilitate identification of unique biopsychological underpinnings. Effects were not moderated by comorbid depression and were similar in magnitude to those found for depression. Sleep disturbances, particularly decreased sleep continuity, may be a key pathology in the anxiety-related disorders that could highlight novel etiological mechanisms and intervention targets.
       
  • Sleep in Parkinson's disease: A systematic review and meta-analysis of
           polysomnographic findings
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 11 February 2020Source: Sleep Medicine ReviewsAuthor(s): Ye Zhang, Rong Ren, Larry D. Sanford, Linghui Yang, Junying Zhou, Lu Tan, Taomei Li, Jihui Zhang, Yun-Kwok Wing, Jie Shi, Lin Lu, Xiangdong TangSummaryPolysomnographic studies have been conducted to explore sleep changes in Parkinson’s disease (PD), but the relationships between sleep disturbances and PD are imperfectly understood. We conducted a systematic review of the literature exploring polysomnographic differences between PD patients and controls in EMBASE, MEDLINE, All EBM databases, CINAHL, and PsycIFNO. 67 studies were identified for systematic review, 63 of which were used for meta-analysis. Meta-analyses revealed significant reductions in total sleep time, sleep efficiency, N2 percentage, slow wave sleep, rapid eye movement sleep (REM) percentage, and increases in wake time after sleep onset, N1 percentage, REM latency, apnea hypopnea index, and periodic limb movement index in PD patients compared with controls. There were no remarkable differences in sleep continuity or sleep architecture between PD patients with and without REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD). Our study suggests that PD patients have poor sleep quality and quantity. Sex, age, disease duration, presence of RBD, medication status, cognitive impairment, and adaptation night are factors that contributed to heterogeneity between studies.
       
  • Physical activity and sleep are inconsistently related in healthy
           children: A systematic review and meta-analysis
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 11 February 2020Source: Sleep Medicine ReviewsAuthor(s): Devan Antczak, Chris Lonsdale, Jane Lee, Toni Hilland, Mitch J. Duncan, Borja del Pozo Cruz, Ryan M. Hulteen, Philip D. Parker, Taren SandersSummaryPhysical activity is considered an effective method to improve sleep quality in adolescents and adults. However, there is mixed evidence among children. Our objectives were to investigate this association in children and to examine potential moderating variables. Eight databases were systematically searched, and we included all study designs with a sample of healthy children ages 3-13 years-old. We identified 47 studies for meta-analysis. Overall, we found little association between physical activity and sleep (r = .02, 95% confidence interval = -.03 to .07). There was a high amount of heterogeneity in the overall model (I2 = 93%). However, none of the examined variables significantly moderated the overall effect, including age, gender, risk of bias, study quality, measurement methodology, study direction, and publication year. Exploratory analyses showed some weak, but statistically significant associations for vigorous physical activity with sleep (r = .09, 95% CI = .01 to .17, I2 = 66.3%), specifically sleep duration (r = .07, 95% CI = .00 to .14, I2 = 41.1%). High heterogeneity and the lack of experimental research suggest our findings should be interpreted with caution. The current evidence, however, shows little support for an association between physical activity and sleep in children.
       
  • Positive Airway Pressure Adherence in Pediatric Obstructive Sleep Apnea: A
           Systematic Scoping Review
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 8 February 2020Source: Sleep Medicine ReviewsAuthor(s): Alexa J. Watach, Melissa S. Xanthopoulos, Olufunke Afolabi-Brown, Bruno Saconi, Kathleen A. Fox, Maylene Qiu, Amy M. SawyerSummaryPositive airway pressure (PAP) therapy is a commonly prescribed treatment for pediatric obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Negative health consequences associated with untreated OSA make understanding the utilization of PAP therapy imperative. The aim of this review was to describe PAP use in children and adolescents with OSA, explore factors that influence use, and describe published scientific or clinical approaches to improve use. Among 20 studies, average PAP adherence was 56.9% (range, 24-87%). PAP use averaged 4.0 hours (SD= 3.1) to 5.2 hours (SD= 3.4) per night. Cautious consideration of summary estimates of PAP use is necessary as studies were heterogeneous and adherence definitions widely varied across studies. Age, sex, and developmental delay were the only factors associated with PAP use in more than one study. The majority of approaches to improve use were program evaluations rather than scientifically tested interventions. This review identified critical gaps in the existing literature and sets forth a research agenda for the future.
