Reliability of sleep diaries for assessment of sleep/wake patterns

Nursing Research
A E RogersM S Aldrich


Although sleep diaries are widely used in clinical and research settings, only a few studies have compared the subjective information recorded in these diaries to objective information about sleep recorded. The goal of this study was to determine if a sleep diary could be used to obtain reliable data about home sleep/wake patterns over a 24-hour period. Fifty subjects (25 narcoleptic and 25 matched control subjects) completed a sleep diary while undergoing 24-hour ambulatory polysomnographic monitoring. The percentage agreement between the subjective data recorded in the sleep diaries and polysomnographic data was acceptable (kappa = .87). Sensitivity and specificity were also high (92.3% and 95.6%). The sleep diary is a reliable instrument for collecting data about sleep/wake patterns, but should be used with caution when collecting data from subjects who are likely to take frequent daytime naps.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
