Abstract and adolescents with DS for PSG. These models were based on a comprehensive set of potential predictive demographic, anthropometric, quality of life and sleep-related variables. Result(s): The results of this study show the predictive power of a model based

Keywords REM sleep
Abstract hypothesized that sleep would be more disrupted in children born preterm. Method(s): Polysomnographic studies matched for age (3-12 years) and SDB severity were analyzed. Sleep macro-architecture was assessed using standard criteria and micro

Sleep-disordered breathing in school-aged children with Prader-Willi syndrome.   [7-Apr-2022]

Schaefer J.; Davey M.J. ; Nixon G.M. 
Abstract polysomnography not involving respiratory support over 5 years (2012-2017). The main outcome measures were the presence of obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea, or hypoventilation defined by an elevated transcutaneous partial pressure of carbon dioxide (Tc

Sleep-disordered breathing and sleep macro- and micro-architecture in children with Down syndrome.   [5-Jul-2022]

Sibarani C.R.; Walter L.M.; Davey M.J. ; Nixon G.M. ; Horne R.S.C.
Abstract (TD+). Children underwent overnight polysomnography with sleep macro- and micro-architecture assessed using electroencephalogram (EEG) spectral analysis, including slow-wave activity (SWA, an indicator of sleep propensity). Result(s): Children with DS
