AbstractIntroduction: Untreated obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has deleterious effects on one's overall health. Recent literature suggests that craniofacial abnormalities, as noted on a lateral cephalometric radiograph (ceph) or clinically by the presence of a posterior crossbite, may be associated with OSA. Literature also suggests that if abnormal ceph measurements are noted or if a patient presents with a posterior crossbite, then further questioning about that patients sleep habits and snoring should be addressed. The primary purpose of this study is to explore any possible associations between ceph measurements, and/or presence of a posterior crossbite with OSA, as determined by the Berlin sleep questionnaire, in the orthodontic population. The second purpose of this research is to outline a part 2 follow-up study through administration of an at home sleep test, the Nox-T3 sleep monitor, to further validate presence of OSA. The overall goal is to see if the combined data from the Berlin score, the clinical presence or absence of a posterior crossbite, and standard orthodontic ceph measurements can increase the predictive value of patients in the orthodontic office who might be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. Methods: A total of 85 consecutive subjects who were already undergoing records in 5 private practice orthodontic offices around the greater Philadelphia area were recruited for voluntary participation in the study. A Berlin questionnaire, lateral ceph, and any noted presence of a posterior crossbite were collected on all subjects. 12 ceph measurements (SNA, SNB, ANB, Co-A, Co-Gn, A-Na perp, Pg-Na perp, SN-MP, FH-MP, Ba-SN, Wits, and MP-Hyoid) were traced by a second year orthodontic resident. 5 subjects were then selected using a random numbers table and given the Nox-T3 sleep monitor for self-administration to record their sleep for one night. Statistical analyses were run using SAS version 9.2 to evaluate any associations. Results: A total of 76 subjects completed data collection, whereas 9 subjects either failed to report their height, and/or weight, and/or failed to complete the Berlin questionnaire in its entirety thus excluding them from the study. A total of 11, or 14% of subjects scored high on the Berlin, meaning a high risk of suffering from OSA. Of all ceph measurements, the only one that showed a statistically significant association with the high Berlin score was MP-Hyoid (p=0.0033). BMI alone was not found to be associated with the Berlin score (p=0.3712). Presence of a posterior crossbite also did not show any correlation with the Berlin score (p= 0.1000). Conclusions: 1) BMI was not found to be associated with the Berlin score among the orthodontic subject population. 2) MP-hyoid was found to be associated with the Berlin score, at a high level of statistical significance. 3) All other cephalometric measurements, including SNA, SNB, ANB, Co-A, Co-Gn, A-Na perp, Pg-Na perp, SN-MP, FH-MP, Ba-SN, and Wits, failed to show any statistically significant correlation to the Berlin score. 4) Posterior crossbite was not found to be associated with the Berlin Score among the orthodontic subject population.

Studying Into a Sleep DisorderJozwik, Matthew (Temple University. Grey Matters, 2021-12)Most students assume that fighting sleep to cram in extra study time is a harmless venture; however, it may in fact be more serious than most people ever think to consider if it becomes habitual. The issue of troubled sleep extends well beyond staying up late one night to prepare for an exam. Disturbances in sleep and poor sleep quality appear to be present in high percentages among college students, and this article will investigate the correlation between college life and sleep disorders/disturbances, as well as effects on academic and everyday performance.
An Analysis of Sleep and Ergometer Performance in Collegiate Male RowersRosney, Daniel M; Hart, Chantelle Nobile; Lauer, Richard T. (Temple University. Libraries, 2020)Introduction: Research has increasingly looked at the effects of sleep on athletic performance. Although there is currently a plethora of data expressing the detrimental effects of sleep deprivation on athletic performance, fewer studies have assessed the effects of sleep extension. Of those studies that have been done, all have been with field or team sport athletes and all have been conducted with athletes who traditionally have practice times later in the day. Rowing is a sport with traditionally early practice times and represents an under examined population. Heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback has been an increasingly utilized tool in monitoring athletes through training programs and allowing coaches a better picture of the effects of an athlete’s training regimen. Members of the Temple Men’s Rowing Team participated in an eight-week sleep extension study to observe any performance benefits gained from the increased amount of sleep. Methods: Nineteen members of the Temple University’s men’s rowing team were asked to increase their sleep to nine to ten hours a night for four weeks, following a two-week baseline period. A two-week post-intervention phase followed the sleep extension period. Three sport specific assessments (Open rate 1-minute, Rate-capped 1-minute, and Interval tests) and daily HRV recordings were captured each week. Results: Subjects were unable to obtain the amount of sleep for sleep extension, averaging 392.07 ± 53.69 and 374.11 ± 41.53 minutes of total sleep time during baseline and the intervention respectively (p = .137). Significant variation was found in the Interval test and OR1-Min test in a week to week comparison. Conclusion: Athletes failed to increase their time asleep, limiting our ability to assess the impact of sleep on performance. Performance did suffer over the course of the study, suggesting participants were below he minimal amount of sleep necessary to maintain performance. Better athlete education by coaches might prove beneficial for athletes to develop the habits necessary for sufficient sleep and improved performance.
Impulsivity and Sleep and Circadian Rhythm Disturbance as Interactive Risk Factors for Bipolar Disorder Mood Symptom and Episode Onset: Evidence from an Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA) StudyAlloy, Lauren B.; McCloskey, Michael S.; Olino, Thomas; Goel, Namni; Heimberg, Richard G.; Chein, Jason M. (Temple University. Libraries, 2020)Impulsivity and sleep and circadian rhythm disturbance are two core features of bipolar disorder that are elevated antecedents to bipolar disorder onset and persist even between mood episodes; their pervasive presence in bipolar disorder suggests that they may be particularly relevant to better understanding bipolar disorder etiology, onset, and course. Given considerable research demonstrating bidirectional associations between sleep and circadian rhythm disturbance and impulsivity in healthy individuals, it is surprising that little research has examined how these core features interact to impact bipolar disorder symptomatology, onset, and course. In a sample of late adolescents and young adults (N = 150) at low or high risk for developing bipolar disorder, we employed a naturalistic experiment in the context of an ecological momentary assessment (EMA) design to examine relationships between impulsivity, sleep and circadian rhythm alterations, and mood symptoms in everyday life. Furthermore, we sought to understand how the relationships between sleep and circadian rhythm alterations and mood fluctuation, collected during the EMA study, prospectively predicted mood symptom severity and mood episode onset at a 6-month follow-up. Linear regression, logistic regression, and multi-level modeling (MLM) revealed that higher impulsivity predicted increased mood symptoms during the EMA study, and less total sleep time (measured by actigraphy) predicted increased next-day EMA-assessed mood symptoms. Interaction analyses suggested that dim light melatonin onset time, total sleep time, and sleep onset latency moderated the relationship between impulsivity and mood symptoms (both next-day and at 6-month follow-up). Results are discussed in terms of their contribution to the existing literature. Findings highlight the necessity of multi-method, nuanced examination of the dynamic relationships between impulsivity and sleep and circadian disturbance within bipolar disorder.
