Impact of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Treatment on Periodic Leg Movement Disorder in Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome and Sulfur Mustard’s Lung Injury

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.203
Synopsis: 
Periodic limb movement disorder (PLMD) and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are prevalent sleep disorders in Sulfur Mustard (SM) patients. This study evaluated the relationship between PLMD frequency and arousal related to PLMD in SM-exposed and OSA patients before and after treatment with continuous positive airway pressure.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Periodic limb movement disorder (PLMD) and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are prevalent sleep disorders in Sulfur Mustard (SM) patients. This study aimed to consider the relationship between PLMD frequency and arousal related to PLMD in SM-exposed and OSA patients before and after treatment with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP).
