Dear Annals of Medical Research Readers

As of the end of March 2021, I have started to work as Chief Editor at Annals of Medical Research. Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 28 years.  Our Journal, which is online as an open access journal with monthly free access, is being scanned in many national and international indexes (ULAKBIM TR Dizin, Turkish Medline, EBSCO, Google Scholar, etc.). I would like to thank the Editors before me who contributed to this level. Our primary goal is to ensure the maintenance of this good state of the journal and to ensure that it is scanned in prestigious international indexes (Pubmed Central, SCI-Expended, etc.). In order to achieve these goals, it depends on the original research articles that can be cited and the articles published in our Journal to be cited sufficiently in other international journals. The contributions of our readers, reviewers and authors in achieving this goal are of great importance.

I hope to announce the news that we have reached our goals as soon as possible.

Abstract

Aim: The importance of the duration of respiratory events, in addition to the number, in the evaluation of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is gradually increasing. We aimed to investigate whether parameter including the number and duration of respiratory events predict cardiovascular mortality.
Material and Methods: A retrospective study included 200 patients with OSA (100 severe, 50 moderate, 50 mild). Time spent during respiratory events, including the number and duration of respiratory events, was calculated for each respiratory event. Obstructive apnea time (OAT), hypopnea time (HT), total apnea time (TAT), and total respiratory event time (TRET) were obtained. The relationship between cardiovascular diseases of the patients and the time spent during respiratory events was examined.
Results: There was no relationship between the cardiovascular diseases and the time spent during respiratory events in the mild, moderate and all OSA group; however, the prolonged OAT (p=0.024) and TAT (p=0.039) in the severe OSA group were associated with an increase in the cardiovascular diseases, independent of other variables. However, the relationship between apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) and cardiovascular diseases in mild, moderate, severe, and all OSA was not significant.
Conclusion: Using parameters including the duration of respiratory events in addition to AHI may be more useful to understand the comorbidities of OSA particularly cardiovascular diseases.

Keywords: Cardiovascular disease; duration; obstructive sleep apnea; respiratory event
