Article information

Presentamos un caso de síndrome de resistencia aumentada de la vía aérea superior diagnosticado mediante pletismografía de impedancia. Esta técnica, por su sencillez y carácter no invasivo, podría constituir en ciertos casos una alternativa a la polisomnografía con sonda esofágica, especialmente en la selección de pacientes para estudios más completos.

Palabras clave:
Hipersomnia
Resistencia
Vía aérea superior

We report a case of increased upper airway resistance diagnosed by impedance plethysmograph. This simple non invasive technique may provide an alternative to polysomnography administered with an esophageal tube, particularly to screen patients before ordering further studies.

Key words:
Hypersomnia
Resistence
Upper airway
