Patients with sleep apnea improve with assisted breathing

The therapy of the president’re breathing continuous positive (TPRP) reduces the fatigue and increases the energyía in patients with obstructive sleep apnea del sue&bath;or, s&number;n a study of the University of the State of San Diego and the University of California in San Diego (united States), which is published in the journal ‘SLEEP’. Patients with obstructive sleep apnea del sue&branches;or often say they feel "new" after you start a treatment with therapy pressure’re breathing continuous positive (TPRP). The study provides objective evidence supporting these reports anecd’ticos and show that three weeks of TPRP reduces fatigue and increases the energyía in these patients.

The results of the trial clínico show that the therapy TPRP reduces the mean scores of fatigue on two independent measures: 8,76 in the línea the basis -0,10 after the treatment s&number;n the Inventory of O’symptoms of Fatigue Multidimensional; and 7,17 in the línea baseline to 4.03 post-treatment on the subscale fatigue-inertia on the Profile of States of nimo. These results indicate that the participants were not sufrían to significant levels of fatigue after a period of intervention’re three weeks. Levels of energyíto decían to feel the patients alsoén increased after three weeks of therapy TPRP and the puntuaci’n half in the subscale of vigor-activity in the Profile of States of nimo enhances’, significantly 14,28 to 16,52. In patients who continued therapy placebo no changes were observed in fatigue and energyía. S&number;n explains Lianne Tomfohr, director of the study, "this is one of the first double-blind studies on the effects of TPRP on fatigue. These results are important, as they highlight that patients who comply with therapy TPRP can find relief from fatigue and experience increases in energyía and force afterés of a treatment to a relatively short". Análysis later discovered that the TPRP seems so feminine’to particularly beneficial for participants who were excessively fatigued or sleepy before treatment. The therapy of TPRP significantly reduced daytime sleepiness in this group of patients and the puntuaci’n half in the Epworth sleepiness scale came down’ of 13,0 in the línea baseline to 8.9 post-treatment. The obstructive apnea del sue&bath;or occurs when the m&number;muscles relax during the sue&bath;or and the soft tissue of the back of the throat collapses and blocks the v’s upper respiratory. The largestíto people with this sleep apnea snore very loud and frequent and often suffer from fatigue and excessive sleepiness during the día. The treatment of choice’n for the obstructive sleep apnea del sue&bath;or it is the therapy of TPRP, which provides a continuous flow of air to través of a mask that is used during the sue&bath;or. The researchers studied 59 adults with a mean age of 48 to&years and who were randomly assigned to receive TPRP terapéutica or placebo. S&number;n to the authors, the mechanisms underlying the observed changes in fatigue are unclear, and we speculate that the TPRP may’to have an impact on the fatigue of patients with sleep apnea to the reduce inflammation’n, indicating that the increases in inflammatory markers in these patients have been associated with a fatigue high.
