DOT Decision to Withdraw Sleep Apnea Screening Puts Us All At Risk: ATS

The American Thoracic Society is extremely disappointed with the Department of Transportation’s decision to withdraw an advance notice of a proposed rule regarding screening commercial truck drivers and train engineers for sleep apnea. Abundant evidence indicates that undiagnosed or untreated sleep apnea is the root cause of many preventable fatal and non-fatal driving-related accidents.

Automated Measure of Nighttime Oxygen Levels Could Speed Diagnosis of Childhood Sleep Apnea

Computer analysis of oxygen levels in the blood during sleep could – by itself – provide an easy, relatively inexpensive and sufficiently reliable way to determine which children who snore habitually could benefit from a diagnosis and treatment for obstructive sleep apnea.

Study Explains Link Between Academic Performance and Violence

A lack of variation in the stress hormone cortisol from morning to evening is tied to a wide range of negative health conditions, including inflammation and immune system dysfunction, new Northwestern University research suggests. In the first comprehensive review of the relationship between daily cortisol fluctuations and health, researchers at the School of Education and Social Policy combined data from 80 different studies to show that while cortisol levels matter, a lack of variation from morning to evening may be even more telling.

People who carry a genetic susceptibility to Alzheimer’s disease appear to be at greater risk of diminished cognition from sleep-disordered breathing than those without the susceptibility, according to new research published online, ahead of print in the Annals of the American Thoracic Society.
