sleep repeated requisition

Stuart J McCarter, Erik K St Louis, Bradley F Boeve
Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behavior disorder (RBD) is a parasomnia characterized by repeated episodes of dream enactment behavior and REM sleep without atonia (RSWA) during polysomnography recording. RSWA is characterized by increased phasic or tonic muscle activity seen on polysomnographic electromyogram channels. RSWA is a requisite diagnostic feature of RBD, but may also be seen in patients without clinical symptoms or signs of dream enactment as an incidental finding in neurologically normal individuals, especially in patients receiving antidepressant therapy...

The modern story of CCHS began in 1970 with the first description by Mellins et al., came most visibly to the public eye with the ATS Statement in 1999, and continues with increasingly fast paced advances in genetics. Affected individuals have diffuse autonomic nervous system dysregulation (ANSD). The paired-like homeobox gene PHOX2B is the disease-defining gene for CCHS; a mutation in the PHOX2B gene is requisite to the diagnosis of CCHS. Approximately 90% of individuals with the CCHS phenotype will be heterozygous for a polyalanine repeat expansion mutation (PARM); the normal allele will have 20 alanines and the affected allele will have 24-33 alanines (genotypes 20/24-20/33)...

Electroencephalography (EEG) is an important tool in investigating children with neurological disorders, particularly epilepsy. The objectives were to examine the relationship between clinical indications and EEG results, and assess the predictability of a normal result. 438 consecutive paediatric EEGs were included prospectively. One certified electroencephalographer (EEGer) reviewed EEG requisitions and recorded his prediction of a normal result. EEGs were reviewed separately and the relationship between the clinical indications and EEG abnormalities was recorded...

BACKGROUND: Propofol, a highly lipophilic anesthetic, is formulated in a lipid emulsion for intravenous use. Propofol has brisk onset and offset of effect after rapid administration and retains rapid offset characteristics after long-term administration. The authors tried to determine whether the emulsion vehicle is requisite for propofol's evanescent effect-time profile. METHODS: The time course of sedation and electroencephalographic (EEG) effect after propofol administration was measured in three studies in rats instrumented...
