ABSTRACT: The German Society of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery recently has released the abbreviated version of its scientific guideline "ENT-specific therapy of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) in adults", which has been updated in 2015 and can be found online at the Association of the Scientific Medical Societies (Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Wissenschaftlichen Medizinischen Fachgesellschaften, AWMF). A summary of the main recommendations is provided in this revised English version. All recommendations are based on a systematic literature research of articles published up until March 2014. Literature research followed the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Literature Research to create Guidelines published by the German Cochrane Centre. Studies were evaluated with respect to their scientific value according to the recommendations of the Oxford Centre for Evidence-based Medicine, and grades of recommendation are provided regarding each intervention.

2 Guideline Implications of revised AASM rules on scoring apneic and hypopneic respiratory events in patients with heart failure with nocturnal Cheyne-Stokes respiration. 2015

Heinrich, Jessica / Spießhöfer, Jens / Bitter, Thomas / Horstkotte, Dieter / Oldenburg, Olaf. ·Department of Cardiology, Heart and Diabetes Centre North Rhine-Westphalia, Ruhr University Bochum, Bad Oeynhausen, Germany. ·Sleep Breath · Pubmed #24906544.

ABSTRACT: STUDY OBJECTIVES: This study investigated the implications of the revised scoring rules of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) in patients with heart failure (HF) with Cheyne-Stokes respiration (CSR). METHODS: Ninety-one patients (NYHA ≥II, LVEF ≤45 %; age 73.6 ± 11.3 years old; 81 male subjects) with documented CSR underwent 8 h of cardiorespiratory polygraphy recordings. Those were analyzed by a single scorer strictly applying the 2007 recommended, 2007 alternative, and the 2012 scoring rules. RESULTS: Compared with the AASM 2007 recommended rules, apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) and hypopnea index (HI) increased significantly when the 2007 alternative and 2012 rules were applied (AHI 34.1 ± 13.5/h vs 37.6 ± 13.2/h vs 38.3 ± 13.2/h, respectively; HI 10.2 ± 9.4/h vs 13.7 ± 10.7/h vs 14.4 ± 11.0/h, respectively; all p < 0.001). Duration of CSR increased significantly with the alternate versus recommended 2007 rules (182.2 ± 117.0 vs 170.1 ± 115.0 min; p ≤ 0.001); there was a significant decrease in CSR duration for the 2012 versus 2007 alternative rules (182.2 ± 117.0 vs 166.7 ± 115.4 min; p ≤ 0.001). CONCLUSION: AHI was higher using the AASM 2012 scoring rules due to a less strict definition of hypopnea. Data on the prognostic effects of CSR in patients with HF and the benefits of treatment are mostly based on the AASM 2007 recommended rules, so differences between these and the newer version need to be taken into account.

3 Guideline Diagnosis and treatment of snoring in adults-S2k Guideline of the German Society of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery. 2015

Stuck, Boris A / Dreher, Alfred / Heiser, Clemens / Herzog, Michael / Kühnel, Thomas / Maurer, Joachim T / Pistner, Hans / Sitter, Helmut / Steffen, Armin / Verse, Thomas. ·Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, University Hospital Mannheim, Theodor-Kutzer-Ufer 1-3, 68167, Mannheim, Germany, boris.stuck@umm.de. ·Sleep Breath · Pubmed #24729153.

ABSTRACT: OBJECTIVES: This guideline aims to promote high-quality care by medical specialists for subjects who snore and is designed for everyone involved in the diagnosis and treatment of snoring in an in- or outpatient setting. DISCUSSION: To date, a satisfactory definition of snoring is lacking. Snoring is caused by a vibration of soft tissue in the upper airway induced by respiration during sleep. It is triggered by relaxation of the upper airway dilator muscles that occurs during sleep. Multiple risk factors for snoring have been described and snoring is of multifactorial origin. The true incidence of snoring is not clear to date, as the incidence differs throughout literature. Snoring is more likely to appear in middle age, predominantly in males. Diagnostic measures should include a sleep medical history, preferably involving an interview with the bed partner, and may be completed with questionnaires. Clinical examination should include examination of the nose to evaluate the relevant structures for nasal breathing and may be completed with nasal endoscopy. Evaluation of the oropharynx, larynx, and hypopharynx should also be performed. Clinical assessment of the oral cavity should include the size of the tongue, the mucosa of the oral cavity, and the dental status. Furthermore, facial skeletal morphology should be evaluated. In select cases, technical diagnostic measures may be added. Further objective measures should be performed if the medical history and/or clinical examination suggest sleep-disordered breathing, if relevant comorbidities are present, and if the subject requests treatment for snoring. According to current knowledge, snoring is not associated with medical hazard, and generally, there is no medical indication for treatment. Weight reduction should be achieved in every overweight subject who snores. In snorers who snore only in the supine position, positional treatment can be considered. In suitable cases, snoring can be treated successfully with intraoral devices. Minimally invasive surgery of the soft palate can be considered as long as the individual anatomy appears suitable. Treatment selection should be based on individual anatomic findings. After a therapeutic intervention, follow-up visits should take place after an appropriate time frame to assess treatment success and to potentially indicate further intervention.

4 Guideline [Perioperative management of patients with obstructive sleep apnea : update on the practice guidelines of the American Society of Anesthesiologists Task Force]. 2014

Fahlenkamp, A / Rossaint, R / Coburn, M / Anonymous350795. ·Klinik für Anästhesiologie, Universitätsklinik der RWTH Aachen, Pauwelsstr. 30, 52074, Aachen, Deutschland, anaesthesiologie@ukaachen.de. ·Anaesthesist · Pubmed #24851836.

ABSTRACT: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a widespread disease which is associated with many cardiovascular diseases and can have health-related consequences for affected patients if untreated. It is known that perioperative airway complications occur more often in OSA patients during general anesthesia. Some years ago the Task Force of the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) published practice guidelines on the perioperative approach to OSA patients. These guidelines have now been revised and updated. This article gives a summary of the recommended approach for the perioperative treatment of patients with OSA given in the 2014 guidelines.

5 Guideline Non-CPAP therapies in obstructive sleep apnoea. 2011

ABSTRACT: In view of the high prevalence and the relevant impairment of patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) lots of methods are offered which promise definitive cures for or relevant improvement of OSAS. This report summarises the efficacy of alternative treatment options in OSAS. An interdisciplinary European Respiratory Society task force evaluated the scientific literature according to the standards of evidence-based medicine. Evidence supports the use of mandibular advancement devices in mild to moderate OSAS. Maxillomandibular osteotomy seems to be as efficient as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) in patients who refuse conservative treatment. Distraction osteogenesis is usefully applied in congenital micrognathia or midface hypoplasia. There is a trend towards improvment after weight reduction. Positional therapy is clearly inferior to CPAP and long-term compliance is poor. Drugs, nasal dilators and apnoea triggered muscle stimulation cannot be recommended as effective treatments of OSAS at the moment. Nasal surgery, radiofrequency tonsil reduction, tongue base surgery, uvulopalatal flap, laser midline glossectomy, tongue suspension and genioglossus advancement cannot be recommended as single interventions. Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty, pillar implants and hyoid suspension should only be considered in selected patients and potential benefits should be weighed against the risk of long-term side-effects. Multilevel surgery is only a salvage procedure for OSA patients.

6 Guideline [Guideline: Treatment of obstructive sleep apnea in adults]. 2009

Verse, T / Bodlaj, R / de la Chaux, R / Dreher, A / Heiser, C / Herzog, M / Hohenhorst, W / Hörmann, K / Kaschke, O / Kühnel, T / Mahl, N / Maurer, J T / Pirsig, W / Rohde, K / Sauter, A / Schedler, M / Siegert, R / Steffen, A / Stuck, B A / Anonymous2900641. ·Abteilung für HNO-Heilkunde, Kopf- und Halschirurgie, Asklepios-Klinik Harburg, 21075 Hamburg. t.verse@asklepios.com ·HNO · Pubmed #19855948.

ABSTRACT: The current guideline discusses conservative and surgical therapy of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in adults from the perspective of the ear, nose and throat specialist. The revised guideline was commissioned by the German Society of Ear-Nose-Throat, Head-Neck Surgery (DG HNO KHC) and compiled by the DG HNO KHC's Working Group on Sleep Medicine. The guideline was based on a formal consensus procedure according to the guidelines set out by the German Association of Scientific Medical Societies (AWMF) in the form of a"S2e guideline". Research of the literature available on the subject up to and including December 2008 forms the basis for the recommendations. Evaluation of the publications found was made according to the recommendations of the Oxford Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine (OCEBM). This yielded a recommendation grade, whereby grade A represents highly evidence-based studies and grade D those with a low evidence base.

13 Editorial CSA Is Not Beneficial Long Term in Heart Failure Patients with Reduced Ejection Fraction. 2017

Oldenburg, Olaf / Coats, Andrew. ·Clinic for Cardiology, Herz- und Diabeteszentrum NRW, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Bad Oeynhausen, Germany. Electronic address: akleemeyer@hdz-nrw.de. · Monash University, Australia and University of Warwick, UK. ·Int J Cardiol · Pubmed #27825728.

ABSTRACT: Central sleep apnea (CSA) affects many patients, with heart failure and results in hypoxia and nor-epinephrine release and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Recent trials in the treatment of CSA using positive airway pressure therapies have failed to demonstrate improvement in mortality and as a result, the compensatory nature of CSA has been questioned. The detrimental effects from CSA are clear. While there may be a short term compensatory effect, the long term effects cause chronic insult to the cardiovascular system indicating that CSA should be treated, but alternative treatment options need to be considered.

22 Review [The terminal hypoglossal nerve and its anatomical variability]. 2019

Heiser, C / Knopf, A / Hofauer, B. ·Klinik und Poliklinik für Hals-Nasen-Ohrenheilkunde, Klinikum rechts der Isar, der Technischen Universität München, Ismaninger Str. 22, 81675, München, Deutschland. hno@heiser-online.com. · Klinik und Poliklinik für Hals-Nasen-Ohrenheilkunde, Klinikum rechts der Isar, der Technischen Universität München, Ismaninger Str. 22, 81675, München, Deutschland. ·HNO · Pubmed #30874852.

ABSTRACT: Upper airway stimulation plays an increasingly important role in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The target of stimulation is the hypoglossal nerve (N. XII), which-as a pure motor nerve-innervates the intrinsic and extrinsic tongue muscles. By selectively stimulating individual nerve fibers, the upper airway can be opened by protruding the tongue. The N. XII has a number of anatomical variants, which are decisive during surgical implantation of these pacemaker systems. Intraoperative neuromonitoring is very helpful in this regard. Accurate placement of the stimulation electrode for selective upper airway stimulation requires knowledge of N. XII anatomy, intraoperative neuromonitoring, and accurate assessment of muscle contractions and tongue movements.

23 Review Addressing the Tone and Synchrony Issue During Sleep: Pacing the Hypoglossal Nerve. 2019

Heiser, Clemens / Hofauer, Benedikt. ·Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Klinikum Rechts der Isar, Technische Universitat Munchen, Ismaninger Street. 22, Munich 81675, Germany. Electronic address: hno@heiser-online.com. · Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Klinikum Rechts der Isar, Technische Universitat Munchen, Ismaninger Street. 22, Munich 81675, Germany. ·Sleep Med Clin · Pubmed #30709538.

ABSTRACT: Upper airway stimulation is a novel therapy for patients suffering from obstructive sleep apnea who are incompliant toward continuous positive airway pressure therapy. Evidence supporting the effectiveness of this therapy with regard to the treatment of disordered breathing, subjective daytime impairment, and its effect on sleep characteristics has increased. Information on the subjective sensation of the stimulation of the hypoglossal nerve could be gathered as more patients are implanted and knowledge of different aspects of the therapy is increasing. Comparisons between upper airway stimulation therapy and other surgical treatment options have been conducted. The surgical technique could be further optimized.

ABSTRACT: Pediatric obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a serious medical condition with numerous health consequences. Dentists are well suited to recognize and provide medical referrals for pediatric patients at risk for OSA. Timely dental sleep medicine interventions may improve signs and symptoms of OSA in growing children. Orthodontic and dentofacial orthopedic treatment may decrease obstructive respiratory events in some pediatric patients. Palatal expansion may be part of a comprehensive orthodontic treatment plan to correct a malocclusion and treat OSA. Orthognathic surgery, mandibular advancement devices, and oropharyngeal exercises may have a role in the management of OSA in pediatric and adolescent patients.
