  • Sex: Male

Referred By: Dr. Michael Thompson Follow Up Physician: Referring Doctor

Laboratory: Pindara Private Hospital, Benowa

Clinical Information: Height: 180 Cm, Weight 91 Kg, BMI:28

1 Kgfm2, Epwo;Tr, Score : 5-6/24.

Indications: Witnessed Apnoeas, Snoring.

Comments:

The Patient Slept For 7:03 (Hh:mm) Mainly In The Non-Supine Position And Rated Their Quality Of Sleep As Worse Than Usual. Sleep Onset Was Rapid (2 Min), Latency To REM Sleep Was Normal (87 Min), And Sleep Efficiency Was Normal At 89.1%. Sleep Staging Identified Slow-Wave Sleep As Present In Normal Proportion (14% Total Sleep Time) And REM Sleep As Present In Normal Proportion (20% Total Sleep Time). Sleep Architecture Was Fragmented With A Total Arousal Index Of 22.4. The Majority Of Arousals Were Associated With Respiratory Events. 4.0 Minutes Of Supine REM Was Recorded.

Continuous Snoring Ranging From Soft To Loud Intensity Was Noted.

During Sleep 83 Apnoeas (68 Obstructive, 2 Mixed & 13 Central) And 70 Hypopnoeas Were Observed. The Respiratory Disturbance Index Overall Was 21.7, Including AHi Of 21.7 (Normal<5); In NREfvl Sleep Was 23.5; In REM Sleep Was 14.7; In The Supine Position Was 42.8, And Non-Supine Position Was 19.3. The Mean Duration Of Apnoea And Hypopnoea Was 33 Secs, The Longest Apnoea Was 49 Secs And The Longest Hypopnoea Was 95 Secs.

Average Awake SpO2 Was 96% And Minimum Sp0 2 During Sleep Was 90% 0.1% Of Sleep Time Was Spent Below 90% Saturation. Blood Pressure On Retiring Was 140/87 MmHg; On Waking Was 138/83 MmHg.

26.4 Periodic Leg Movements Occurred Per Hour Of Sleep And Contributed To 2.6 Arousals Per Hour Of Sleep.

Conclusion:

Overall Moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Associated With Mild Sleep Fragmentation But No Significant Oxygen Desaturation. Severity Of Sleep Apnoea Increased During Supine Sleep. Frequent Periodic Limb Movements Not Associated With Significant Sleep Fragmentation. Cardiac Rhythm Was Sinus.

Recommendations :

  1. Sleep or Thoracic Physician review.
  2. CPAP titration study and trial
  3. Weight optimization.
