About this Research Topic
The current Research Topic aims to illustrate the causal relationship between sleep disorders and airway diseases and their burden on patients’ health. The analysis of the link between both diseases may help to establish appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for controlling patients’ co-morbidities and ultimately improve patients’ outcomes and wellbeing.
Thus, the goal of this Research Topic is to provide a state-of-the-art assessment of the main characteristics of sleep disorders in acute or chronic airways diseases, including insomnia, sleep apnea, circadian rhythm disturbance, and respiratory disorders during sleep. Particularly, we welcome research involving the most recent advances in diagnostic biomarkers, advanced imagery, polysomnography and diagnostic tools using artificial intelligence.
We invite researchers to submit a range of articles, including but not limited to, original research articles, reviews, opinions, perspectives, and case reports on the following topics:
• Sleep disorders in allergic rhinitis
• Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in allergic rhinitis
• Sleep disorder in asthma
• Sleep disorder in COPD
• Sleep disorder in cystic fibrosis
• OSA in obstructive lung disease (OLDOSA)
• OSA in asthma or COPD
• OSA in lung fibrosis
• Insomnia in upper and lower airway diseases
• Sleep disorder in airway neoplasia/cancer
• Sleep disorder in Covid-19 and post-Covid.
