Epilepsy Behav Case Rep
Objectives: To match responsive neurostimulator (RNS) and polysomnographic data to determine if RNS detections and stimulations correlate with measurements of sleep disordered breathing and continuous glucose measurements (CGM).
Materials and methods: In a patient with an RNS with detection/stimulation leads implanted bi-temporally detection-stimulation counts were matched by time with coinciding polysomnogram and CGM data.
Results: Temporal dispersion of RNS DSC were independent of measures of sleep apnea, hypopnea or glucose.
Conclusion: Hippocampal nighttime responsive neurostimulation therapies did not appear to worsen measures of normal or abnormal sleep.
