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).

The Role of Neurous Autophagy in Pulmonary Encephalopathy and Signalling Pathways

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.208
Synopsis: 
In this work, we evaluated the concentration of the ATG7 protein and P62 protein and the β- glucocerebrosidase enzyme in the CSF of the patients with increased pulmonary encephalopathy. Atg7 and the ubiquitin-like conjugation it participated in, may be an important channel of the formation of autophagy in neurons of patients with pulmonary encephalopathy. Through this research, we can understand the molecular mechanisms of the formation of autophagy in neurons of patients with pulmonary encephalopathy, which may be new targets for diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary encephalopathy.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To survey the effects of hypoxia on autophagy in the pulmonary encephalopathy.

Correlation of Left Ventricular Diastolic Function and Left Ventricular Geometry in Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Syndrome

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.054
Pages: 
92–8
Synopsis: 
Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome is an independent risk factor of morbidity and mortality in cardiovascular diseases. In this study, there was significant correlation between the left ventricular diastolic dysfunction and changes in cardiac geometry in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome.

ABSTRACT

Background: The aim of this study is to evaluate the correlation of the left ventricular diastolic function and the left ventricular geometry in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) by echocardiography.
