Behavioural Observation as a Means of Assessing Sleepiness Related Driving Impairment in Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Andrew Vakulin/ Jillian Dorrian/ Tristan R Duggan/ Carla A Litchfield/ Katherine J Cobb/ Nick A Antic/ Doug McEvoy/ Stuart D Baulk/ Peter G Catcheside

This study compared the temporal pattern of non-verbal behaviours (actions not directly related to task performance) in obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) drivers under monotonous driving conditions following sleep restriction versus normal sleep. Seventeen patients with untreated severe OSA completed a 90-minute driving simulator task during mid-afternoon under two experimental conditions: prior normal habitual sleep (~8h) and prior sleep restriction (4h time in bed). Steering deviation and crash e(..)

Impact of an enclosure rotation on the activity budgets of two zoo-housed giant pandas (Ailuropoda melanoleuca): An observational case study

Jillian Claire Ryan/ Carla A Litchfield

Captive giant pandas are reported in the literature to perform stereotypic behaviours which are considered to be a behavioural indicator of stress. Although environmental enrichment techniques are commonly used to prevent and/or mitigate performance of stereotypic behaviour in captive giant pandas, evaluation of such techniques is rarely undertaken or reported. This study used behavioural observation methodologies to evaluate the impact of an enclosure rotation as enrichment on the activity budg(..)

The impact of returning to a daytime schedule on sleep, performance and mood after simulated fixed and rotating split shift schedules

Stephanie Centofanti/ Michelle Short/ Cassie J Hilditch/ Jillian Dorrian/ Mark Kohler/ Siobhan Banks

Split shift schedules which minimise consecutive hours awake and maintain adequate total sleep time per 24h may be a suita-ble alternative to long shifts. However, when returning to a daytime schedule (RTDS), performance and sleep deficits may occur as a result of changing the timing of sleep and wake periods. The first aim of the current study was to check whether fixed and rotating split shift schedules with 20h time in bed (TIB) per 48h minimised cumulative deficits in sleep, performance and mood(..)

Can pregnant women accurately report snoring? A pilot study

Jane Warland/ Jacinta Carpentieri/ Jillian Dorrian

Sleep-Disordered Breathing (SDB) has been associated with possible negative outcomes, such as preeclampsia and foetal growth restriction. SDB screening tools have been developed for use within general populations. These included the use of self-reports and objective measurements. Seventeen pregnant women within their 34th to 37th week of pregnancy were recruited.  Participants undertook an overnight study within their home and SDB symptoms were monitored using the Watch-PAT 200 and an infra-red (..)

A behavioural modification intervention to reduce snack food consumption focusing on external situational cues: The case study you can’t read between meals without ruining your appetite!

Nicola Brewer

Currently, obesity is a leading threat to optimal health and wellbeing in Australia. Offsetting risks of acute and chronic disease and disability, a balanced diet offers a sound investment against premature morbidity and mortality commonly associated with obesity. Demonstrated empirically to lead to weight gain, consumption of snack foods lacking in nutritional value (“indulgences”) threatens a healthy lifestyle and is as prevalent as 90% in some populations. Thus, finding strategies to counterac(..)

The effect of sleep loss on adolescent fluid intelligence performance: A dose-response study** Emily Duncanson,*a Michelle Shorta. a. University of South Australia.   Introduction: Sleep loss is prevalent among adolescents, with many adolescents worldwide failing to obtain an optimal amount of sleep each night. Insufficient sleep results in considerable impairment to numerous domains of adolescent functioning, including neurocognitive performance, learning capacity, and academic outcomes. While (..)
