For some, sleeping with a CPAP machine is impossible. Despite seeming like a minor annoyance that might keep your partner up at night, there are several serious side effects of sleep apnea if left untreated, including high blood pressure, strokes and heart issues.

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Shows Minimal Benefit in Elders With OSA

After adjusting for baseline scores, no significant correlation emerged between the changes on Epworth Sleepiness Scale and the number of hours of CPAP use. Post hoc data from 2 open-label, multicenter clinical trials showed that individuals with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) aged at least 70 years old had low adherence to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) with limited treatment effects observed. Investigators concluded that the findings do not support the use of CPAP in this age population.1.

Utterly Ridiculous “Study” Claims Minnesotans Get the Most Sleep

A recent study of Twitter trends claims that the average Minnesotan gets 8 hours 54 minutes of sleep every night -- more than any other state. There are certain studies that -- to be frank -- smell like a pile of s***. Like this one claiming that Minnesota's most popular Christmas cookie is a gluten-free Christmas cookie (seriously?). Or this study claiming that Minnesota's favorite holiday movie is Jingle All the Way (just because it's set in Minnesota doesn't mean it's our favorite holiday movie). Or this study claiming that Minnesota's favorite "trashy beer" is Coors Light (ever hear of Busch?). Or this study claiming that Minnesota eats less ice cream than every other state (analyzing how often we visit an ice cream venue is not an accurate study).

International Flavors & Fragrances $IFF Stock Gets Buy Ratings, Icahn Stake

On January 25, 2022, Stifel analyst Mark Astrachan upgraded IFF (IFF) to Buy from Hold with a price target of $160, up from $155.

Future Opportunities Using One-Nightly Sodium Oxybate for Narcolepsy Treatment

Clete Kushida, MD, PhD: So, Lois, what do you think are some important next steps?. Lois E. Krahn, MD: Well, I really appreciate having this evidence to incorporate into my clinical practice. There are a number of new medications for the treatment of narcolepsy, and this will give me the opportunity to understand what my patients needs are, and then to select a medication that best reflects their needs. And for this medication, I do think that the once-a-night dosing is going to be something welcomed by many patients and their families. So just having more choices is very welcome. Now we have the opportunity to clarify in the clinical practice setting which medications are best for which patients. I do want to say 1 other thing that was pointed out in this paper, which I think is good practice for patients with any type of sleep problem. In order to help a person not have enuresis, remind them to be careful about their fluid intake at bedtime, and to empty their bladder before they go to bed is a good practice. I encourage that for patients with a variety of sleep disorders, but that was 1 point made in this paper to help with the side effects of enuresis that I will also pass on to all my patients with sleep disorders, but especially those on oxybate therapy.
