Aims: Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a metabolic disorder requiring intensive self-care to maintain optimal glycemic control. Sleep disturbance is common in T2D patients and likely impairs glycemic control. Our aim was to examine the relationship between sleep disturbance and self-care in adults with T2D.
Methods: This study ...
To describe sleep 2–3 days postconcussion through symptom recovery and make comparison to well-matched nonconcussed controls.
Twenty college students were physician diagnosed with a concussion and compared with 20 nonconcussed controls matched on age, sex, physical activity, and sleep quality. A wrist-worn ActiGraph GT9X Link was provided during ...
Purpose: Physical inactivity and sleep disturbance are frequently observed and relate to poor clinical outcomes in maintenance hemodialysis patients. We aimed to investigate the effect of intradialytic exercise on daily physical activity and sleep quality, measured by an accelerometer, in maintenance hemodialysis patients.
Methods: This study randomly assigned ambulatory maintenance ...
Objectives: Shift work may alter workers' leisure-time and occupational physical activity (PA) levels, which might be one of the potential underlying mechanisms of the negative health effects of shift work. Therefore, we compared objectively measured PA levels between hospital shift and non-shift workers.
Methods: Data were used from Klokwerk+, a ...
Actigraphy is widely used to estimate sleep-wake time, despite limited information regarding the comparability of different devices and algorithms. We compared estimates of sleep-wake times determined by two wrist actigraphs (GT3X+ versus Actiwatch Spectrum [AWS]) to in-home polysomnography (PSG), using two algorithms (Sadeh and Cole-Kripke) for the GT3...
To determine whether sleep patterns (duration, timing, efficiency) differ by ethnicity.
Dunedin, New Zealand.
A total of 939 children (48% male) aged 4-12 years (572 European, 181 Māori, 111 Pacific, 75 Asian).
All measurements were obtained at months 0, 12, and 24. Anthropometry was obtained using standard techniques, and parents completed ...
This study examines accelerometer-based and self-report assessment of sleep disturbance from a larger prospective cohort of youth 5 to 18 years of age with postconcussive injury. Twenty-one participants with self-reported sleep disturbance were evaluated using accelerometers. Participants completed the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) every 48 hours and also measured sleep via ...
The purpose of this multinational and cross-sectional study was to investigate whether nighttime sleep duration was associated with physical activity (PA) and sedentary time (SED) the following day, whether daytime PA/SED were associated with sleep duration the subsequent night, and whether the associations were modified by sex and ...
Childhood maltreatment is associated with alterations in morphology of stress susceptible brain regions. Maltreatment is also known to markedly increase risk for psychopathology and to have an enduring disruptive effect on sleep.
To determine whether abnormalities in sleep continuity have effects on brain morphometry and to evaluate the ...
An important step in accelerometer data analysis is the classification of continuous, 24-hour data into sleep, wake, and non-wear time. We compared classification times and physical activity metrics across different data processing and classification methods.
Participants (n = 576) from the Finnish Retirement and Aging Study (FIREA) wore an accelerometer ...
