Actigraphy appears to assist in the evaluation of patients with advanced sleep phase syndrome, delayed sleep phase syndrome and shift work disorder. Moreover, there is some evidence may be helpful touse of actigraphy in the evaluation of patients from jetlag disorder and not 24 hours sleep / wake syndrome suspected support. When polysomnography is not available , is displayed actigraphy to estimate total sleep time in patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
The planned clinical approach of this research study involves a receptor protein called MERTK that the pigment epithelium, the pigmented cell layer just outside the retina , which is very closely expressed by photoreceptors in the maintenance of visual function. Patients with loss of function in a defect MERTK phagocytosis? A mechanism remove remove pathogens and cell debris. As a result of this deficiency, Accumulates deposits between the photoreceptors and retinal pigment epithelium, which eyesight death of photoreceptors and loss of. Actigraphy is a useful way to assess and manage Sleep DisordersActigraphy, offers the use of a portable device that detects motion in a long time, and was used in the study of sleep and circadian rhythms, an acceptably accurate estimate of sleep patterns in normal, healthy adult populations and in patients suspected of certain sleep disorders, according to parameters in the 1st April issue of the journal SLEEP published practice.
