12 Possible Causes for Apnea, Subluxation of Jaw

  • Upper Airway Obstruction

    Micrognathia was more common in women with partial upper airway obstruction than with obstructive sleep apnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] While tilting the patient's head back, gently displace the jaw upwards and anteriorly (see images to the left), subluxating the TMJ in the process.[maskinduction.com] Diagnoses says hypertrophic tonsil and adenoids with upper airway obstruction and sleep apnea.[aapc.com]

  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

    CONCLUSIONS: High rates of PI and sleep apnea highlight the need to refer TMD patients complaining of sleep disturbance for polysomnographic evaluation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] locking in the wide-open position for TMJ subluxation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Scalloped tongues are 60-70 % predictive of sleep apnea and forward head posture is implicated in sleep apnea, chronic neck and back pain and problems at the atlas/axis cranial[ihateheadaches.org]

  • Succinylcholine

    , and the duration of apnea did not extend up to 4 h, whereas in our case with acute, severe poisoning, succinylcholine led to more prolonged muscle paralysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Following induction of anesthesia and the administration of succinylcholine prior to jaw manipulation, her mouth could not be opened, and we suspected spontaneous subluxation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] who carry genetic or acquired deficiency of butyrylcholinesterase, the serum enzyme responsible for succinylcholine hydrolysis, are susceptible to succinylcholine-induced apnea[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Exertional Headache

    Sleep apnea is another classical cause of a sleep associated chronic headache.[doctorstrizhak.com] Jaw pain that occurs with chewing often is considered to be TMJ dysfunction when arthritic in quality and if subluxations of the jaw can be shown on the physical examination[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spondyloepimetaphyseal Dysplasia-Hypotrichosis Syndrome

    This can lead to chronic breathing issues, sleep apnea, chronic respiratory infections, and potentially heart failure in middle age.[rarediseases.org] In the hypermobile form : check the mobility of the cervical spine and the opening of mouth; subluxations and recurrent dislocations of the jaw can lead to ankylosis of the[sites.uclouvain.be] Myasthenic Syndrome (AGRN, ALG2, CHAT, CHRNA1, CHRNB1, CHRND, CHRNE, COLQ, DOK7, DPAGT1, MUSK, RAPSN, SCN4A, SYT2) 14 Myasthenic syndrome, congenital, associated with episodic apnea[viafet.com]

  • Ehlers Danlos Syndrome

    Samuel had trouble holding down food and developed sleep apnea, a condition in which he could stop breathing in his sleep.[web.archive.org] (partial dislocation), often affecting the shoulder, kneecap, and/or temporomandibular joint (jaw) Soft, smooth, elastic skin that may bruise easily Chronic musculoskeletal[caringmedical.com] Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) Dizziness and vertigo Nausea Nystagmus (irregular eye movements) Facial pain Muscle weakness Impaired gag reflex Restless Leg Syndrome Sleep Apnea[web.archive.org]

  • Abnormalities of Size and Form of Teeth

    Sleep apnea: Usually marked by excessive “Snoring” , it is a sleep disorder when there is absence of breathing during sleep. It can create several health risks.[denteractive.com] Subluxation: Injury of tooth-supporting structures with abnormal loosening but without tooth displacement.[denteractive.com] Orthographic Surgery: Jaw Surgery to alter and anatomically improve the relationships of teeth and opposing dental arches.[denteractive.com]

  • Uvula Abnormal

    Obstructive sleep apnea in primary care. Dearborn, Mich.: Oakwood Hospital, 1997 . Do You Have Sleep Apnea? FIGURE 2.[aafp.org] The angle is usually mild, but in some cases, it can be pronounced enough that the jaw subluxes with opening.[med.stanford.edu] Other children with sleep apnea may benefit from CPAP.[entmds.net]

  • Musculocontractural Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Type 2

    CASE 5 A nine-day-old girl was admitted to hospital for episodes of apnea, shaking, cyanosis and choking during the previous three days.[dokumen.tips] In the hypermobile form : check the mobility of the cervical spine and the opening of mouth; subluxations and recurrent dislocations of the jaw can lead to ankylosis of the[sites.uclouvain.be] The impact of obstructive sleep apnea on aortic disease in Marfan's syndrome.[annalscts.com]

  • Acro-Fronto-Facio-Nasal Dysostosis

    […] alae nasi (100%), thumbs are broad, occasionally bifid, cardiac defects in 25%, broad great toes in 100%, ear infections are common Sleep problems possibly due to sleep apnea[en.wikibooks.org] In the hypermobile form : check the mobility of the cervical spine and the opening of mouth; subluxations and recurrent dislocations of the jaw can lead to ankylosis of the[sites.uclouvain.be] 2 Cases 1114 Aplasia cutis congenita 10.0 BP 1116 Aplasia cutis congenita- intestinal lymphangiectasia syndrome 3 Cases 1117 Aplasia cutis-myopia syndrome 4 Cases 99981 Apnea[azkurs.org]
