Synopsis: 
Obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) is a sleep-related respiratory disorder that increases the risk of several other diseases. We evaluated the mode of action of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), which is the treatment of choice, in OSAHS therapy. The results of this study reveal that CPAP acts by reducing the levels of cystatin C and leptin in the serum which are involved in raising the basal metabolic rate in OSAHS.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To evaluate the effects of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) on serum cystatin C and leptin concentration levels in patients with obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS).

Effect of Dialysic Frequency on Microinflammation in Patient with Maintenance Haemodialysis

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.441
Synopsis: 
We observed the effect of dialysis frequency on micro-inflammation in patients with maintenance haemodialysis. Patients who had dialysis less than twice per week had higher rates of micro-inflammation. This was an indication that the frequency of dialysis affected maintenance haemodialysis.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To study influence of different dialysic frequency on micro-inflammation for the maintenance hemodialysis patients.

Age and Gender Differences of Orthostatic Hypertension in Children

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.316
Pages: 
583–87
Synopsis: 
We report the results of a retrospective cross-sectional study of 2089 children referred for syncope of unknown origin and pre-syncope symptoms. We noted that orthostatic hypertension existed in 23.84% out of these 2089 children. Orthostatic hypertension frequency was higher in males and those ≥ 12 years of age. In orthostatic hypertensive children, head-up tilt test positive rate was higher in females and those ≥ 12 years of age. Since orthostatic hypertension, as an orthostatic blood pressure regulation disorder, is not as well studied as orthostatic hypotension, we believe that our findings could be of interest to the readers of your journal.

ABSTRACT

Background: Orthostatic hypotension (OH) is a common orthostatic blood pressure (BP) regulation disorder. Orthostatic hypertension (OHT), on the other hand, is not so common but has relevancy with autonomic neuropathy and diabetes. Orthostatic hypotension is prevalent in females and elderly person. But prevalence of OHT in age and gender is poorly studied.
