Summary

Whitcomb, et al (2012) focused on lack of sleep and the development of delirium and identifying environmental factors that possibly contribute to the syndrome. The pilot study consisted of seven new patients, aged 65 years or older, who were intubated and sedated and observed for one to seven nights depending on their length of stay in the ICU. The goal of the research was to determine the relationship between these variables using a sleep monitor to capture actual sleep activity compared with patient characteristics and real-time activity in the ICU environment. The results showed that there is a relationship between sedation, lack of rapid eye movement sleep and delirium, and the need to further investigate with larger studies.

Double-Blind, Sham-Controlled Crossover Pilot Study of Low Field Magnetic Stimulation (LFMS) on Subjective and Objective Measures of Sleep Save

Sleep Disorders
Summary

Participants will be recruited and screened through ongoing studies in the sleep and anxiety disorders clinic. Participants with insomnia will be consented to complete several questionnaires, undergo a brief physical exam, provide a urinalysis, and undergo 5 nights of active or sham Low Field Magnetic Stimulation (LFMS) followed by an overnight sleep study. Each of the two treatment conditions (active versus sham) will be conducted on two consecutive nights. There will be no more than 7 days between the adaptation night and the first treatment condition and no more than 7 nights between each of the two-night treatment conditions . Thus, each participant who completes the full study will spend a total of 5 nights in the sleep laboratory and the time interval from the first adaptation night to completion of the study may range from 5-19 days for any particular individual.

A Randomized Clinical Trial Comparing the Effectiveness of Yoga, Survivorship Health Education, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Treating Insomnia in Cancer Survivors Save

Summary

Sleep disturbance, particularly insomnia, is a common problem for cancer survivors. Insomnia can be described as excessive daytime napping, difficulty falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep, or waking up earlier than you would like. Insomnia can increase fatigue, impair physical function, impair immune function, cause circadian rhythms (known as your biological clock) to be disrupted and decrease quality of life. Because there is no ideal standard of care for effectively treating sleep problems in cancer survivors, the purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of three different treatments for improving sleep problems and determine which is best. The three treatments are yoga, survivorship health education, and cognitive behavioral therapy.

Summary

The Sleep Research Data Repository (SRDR) aimed to systematically collect, analyze and store for future research sleep and sleep disorders related biological and psychological information. It will include sleep physiological measurements and the results of interviews, questionnaires, and laboratory tests. The SRDR will contain sleep related information obtained from healthy subjects and patients with psychiatric, substance abuse, neurological disorders, or any medical conditions associated with sleep disturbances. SRDR data will be made available to current and future IRB-approved investigators associated with this protocol.
