562 Possible Causes for Periods of Apnea

  • Apnea of Prematurity

    Apnea of Prematurity Periodic Breathing Apnea of Prematurity swallowing movements 11.[] Our results do not support the opinion that brief periods of apnea are abnormal when accompanied by a TEB. ( AJDC . 1990;144:54-57)[] Apnea is classified into three categories based on the presence or absence of upper airway obstruction: 7. Central Apnea 8. Obstructive Apnea 9. Mixed Apnea 10.[]

  • Viral Lower Respiratory Infection

    […] and other rare conditions, such as periodic fever, but further discussion is beyond the scope of this paper.[] […] for consideration of tonsillectomy for recurrent acute sore throat in both children and adults. 34 Adenotonsillectomy may be required in children with obstructive sleep apnea[]

  • Acute Alcohol Intoxication

    Monitor the patient carefully for apnea and respiratory depression throughout the period of intoxication. Determine the adequacy of the patient’s breathing.[]

  • Insomnia

    […] central apneas and periodic sighs, all combined with electrophysiologic "microarousals," and a mixture of alpha and delta EEG wave activities.[] periodic limb movements.[] Recordings disclosed disordered breathing during sleep in the form of pronounced periodic breathing of alternating hypopneas and hyperpneas, isolated hypopneic episodes and[]

  • Sleep Apnea

    Signs of sleep apnea include: Daytime sleepiness Impotence Irritability or mood changes Loud snoring Loss of concentration and memory Periods of apnea (not breathing) OSA[] […] of Apnea (ie obstructed breathing) during sleep, and a very restless sleep pattern.[] As a result, you'll make no effort to breathe for brief periods. Central sleep apnea can affect anyone.[]

  • Hypertension

    […] hypertension, and the studies were too small and the follow-up period too short to allow for adequate evaluation.[] S5.4.4-1–S5.4.4-5 Although many RCTs have been reported that address the effects of CPAP on BP in obstructive sleep apnea, most of the patients studied did not have documented[]

  • Hyperventilation

    The hyperventilation and apnea tasks were separated by a 5-minute resting period.[] […] breathing R06.4 Hyperventilation R06.5 Mouth breathing R06.8 Other abnormalities of breathing R06.81 Apnea, not elsewhere classified R06.82 Tachypnea, not elsewhere classified[] […] on the anterior commissure and the posterior commissure) on 10 healthy male volunteers during baseline breathing as well as during simple voluntary hyperventilation and apnea[]

  • Alcohol Abuse

    Alcohol's general depressant effects can increase the duration of periods of apnea, worsening any preexisting OSA (14).[] In addition, moderate to high doses of alcohol consumed in the evening can lead to narrowing of the air passage (13,14), causing episodes of apnea even in persons who do not[]

  • Tonsillitis

    Sleep apnea is a condition where a person stops breathing for brief periods of time while sleeping.[] This can lead to a more serious condition known as obstructive sleep apnea.[] Obstructive sleep apnea is also a leading indication for tonsillectomies in persons with chronic or recurrent tonsillitis.[]

  • Sleep Apnea Syndrome

    Observations of breathing during sleep show varying combinations and degrees of periodic breathing, apneas, and hypoxemia.[] A bed partner often notices periods of apnea. Jerking movements of the limbs, waking at night, and, occasionally, somnambulism are common.[] Snoring, intermittent choking, and nocturnal dyspnea reflect varying degrees of upper airway obstruction associated with Sleep Apnea Syndrome.[]
