Reading Sleep Study Results Identifying Sleep Apnea
This is a sleep study that shows someonewith sleep apnea. This channel right here shows a personbreathing and then they stopped breathing for what seems like a long time it's about 40 seconds and then they breathe again, they wake up,and they stopped breathing again and then they breathe again, and younotice every time they start breathing there's a big snort this is the source, then they stopbreathing, the big snort and they resume breathing. Another thingthat occurs
is oxygen fallsthat's the white channel, that goes down and then it comes up when they resumebreathing and it comes down so the oxygen is going up and down youcan see it best here. You can see it sliding up and down. Anotherthing to note his when they're not breathing their chest and abdomen will move. This one here is chest in this down here is abdomen, so they're still trying tobreathe
but they're not getting, they're notgetting any air. During the apnea, when they're notbreathing, the diaphragm is working and sucking thechest in, and you see the chest and abdomen go in differentdirections here and then, when they open their mouth and resume breathing, they start movingsynchronously again, they move together again and then when there's an apnea, they'removing in different directions again
That's one way you know that the apnea is an obstructive apnea.
Sleep apnea research The HeartBEAT Study Susan Redline
I'm Susan Redline. I'm from Harvard Medical School and I lead the HeartBEAT study. And HeartBEAT stands for Heart Biomarkers in Apnea Treatment Study. And what this study is is the first ever controlled, randomized study comparing treatment outcomes in patients with sleep apnea. And very specifically we've identified using prior research that sleep apnea and heart disease are highly correlated. And it appears that sleep apnea increases your risk for heart disease. What we didn't know before the study
is whether treatment of sleep apnea might reduce your heart disease risk factors. And furthermore we also didn't know what might be the best treatment. Because of the funding opportunity we were able to for the very first time move our questions out of a typical sleep laboratory, where we know patients have sleep disorders, into cardiology practices, and pilot and refine an approach for screening and diagnosing new cases of sleep apnea and heart disease.
Already we analyzed our crosssectional data and we saw for example that sleep apnicsâ€” that the severity of sleep apnea correlated or was associated with how high your blood pressure went up at night during sleep. So one of the things we are going to be looking for is whether treatment with CPAP or with oxygen reduces not only your daytime blood pressure but your average blood pressure over a 24hour period, including that period at night when many heart attacks and strokes occur.
