A systematic review of the association between obstructive sleep apnea and ventricular arrhythmias. - Journal of clinical sleep medicine : JCSM : official publication of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is an independent risk factor for sudden cardiac death. The aim of this review was to study the relationship between OSA and ventricular arrhythmias.PubMed, Medline, and Cochrane databases were searched with MESH headings to find studies linking OSA and ventricular arrhythmias including ventricular ectopy, ventricular tachycardia (VT), and ventricular fibrillation (VF). Studies were graded by a scoring system, and an attempt was made to pool data.There were no matched cohort or case control studies to study the association between OSA and ventricular arrhythmias. Given data heterogeneity, pooling and meta-analysis of data were not possible. An attempt was made to judge the quality of evidence and present a systematic review. Patients with OSA were noted to have higher odds of ventricular ectopy, and were at a higher risk for ventricular arrhythmias. Associations included higher QTc dispersion and HR variability. We did not, however, find any clear evidence for a direct correlation between increased apnea hypopnea index and increased VT or VF.Pooling and meta-analysis of studies linking OSA and ventricular arrhythmias were not possible due to heterogeneity of data. In a systemic review of studies, patients with OSA were noted to have higher odds of ventricular ectopy and arrhythmias. A single study showed that CPAP may help lower arrhythmogenicity; however, it was unclear if CPAP lowered the risk of VT. Further research should focus on studying the association of OSA and causes of sudden cardiac death, including ventricular arrhythmias.

Malignant pleural effusions and the role of talc poudrage and talc slurry: a systematic review and meta-analysis. - F1000Research
Malignant Pleural Effusion (MPE) is common with advanced malignancy. Palliative care with minimal adverse events is the cornerstone of management. Although talc pleurodesis plays an important role in treatment, the best modality of talc application remains controversial.  To compare rates of successful pleurodesis, rates of respiratory and non-respiratory complications between thoracoscopic talc insufflation/poudrage (TTI) and talc slurry (TS). MEDLINE (PubMed, OVID),  EBM Reviews (Cochrane database of Systematic Reviews, ACP Journal Club, DARE, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, Cochrane Methodology Register, Health Technology Assessment and NHS Economic Evaluation Database), EMBASE and Scopus. Randomized controlled trials published between 01/01/1980 - 10/1/2014 and comparing the two strategies were selected. Twenty-eight potential studies were identified of which 24 studies were further excluded, leaving four studies. No statistically significant difference in the probability of successful pleurodesis was observed between TS and TTI groups (RR 1.06; 95 % CI 0.99-1.14; Q statistic, 4.84). There was a higher risk of post procedural respiratory complications in the TTI group compared to the TS group (RR 1.91, 95% CI= 1.24-2.93, Q statistic 3.15). No statistically significant difference in the incidence of non-respiratory complications between the TTI group and the TS group was observed (RR 0.88, 95% CI= 0.72-1.07, Q statistic 4.61).There is no difference in success rates of pleurodesis based on patient centered outcomes between talc poudrage and talc slurry treatments.  Respiratory complications are more common with talc poudrage via thoracoscopy.
