CPAP Orientation Starts at Trinity Sleep Center

For those who are newly diagnosed with sleep apnea, Trinity’s Sleep Center has created an orientation session to help educate them and help them ease into a new life with CPAP technology.

“It’s a class for people newly diagnosed with sleep apnea. We go over what sleep apnea is and what treatment options are available,” said Jutta Schmidt, RPSGT, CCSH, a sleep educator and coordinator of the Trinity Sleep Center.

The purpose of the class is to help patients become successful with CPAP technology. “An informed patient is more likely to be open to trying it,” Schmidt said, noting that the class shows them different modalities, as well as the “tricks of making it work.”

This is done through desensitization, in which “we fit them for a mask, they wear it for a while. Maybe even nap with it here, and work with the sleep educator,” Schmidt said. “It’s like a practice session. We evaluate the fit of the mask and some have obstacles, such as claustrophobia, and we work with them on that.”

Once the patient has been set up, the sleep educator calls the patients 30 days later to see how they are doing. “We can log in to see the patient’s data download to see how they are doing,” Schmidt said. “If the sleep educator sees them struggling, either with issues or them not using it, we work with the patient.”

Orientations are bi-weekly on the first and third Wednesday of each month. They last one to two hours, depending on the number of attendees and the number of questions they have.

“We show them the masks that are available and go over the options with them and answer their questions,” Schmidt said. “Most patients are going to have questions once they get diagnosed. ‘Are they noisey?’, ‘Can I travel with them?’, those kinds of things, to ease their mind.”

For more information about these CPAP classes, call the Trinity Sleep Center at 857-2348.

Sky Force

Since the establishment of NorthStar Criticair in 1992, patients in outlying communities have been able to to benefit from helicopter transportation to Trinity Health in Minot.

Now, in an effort to provide complete critical care transfer service to our region, NorthStar Criticair has expanded with the addition of a fixed wing plane for when patients need to be transferred from Trinity Hospital to another medical center.

Mark Chilson, flight program coordinator for NorthStar Criticair, says more than 100 flights have been completed on the fixed wing service since it was acquired in November 2015. The amount of transports that were being flown out of Trinity for higher-level care warranted the need for a faster mode of transportation. The plane flies at 280 miles per hour,  more than twice as fast as the helicopter, Chilson says.

The plane allows a family member to fly with the patient. The airplane also carries three crew members, including  a pilot.

“We can fly anywhere,” Chilson says, referring to the continental U.S. and Canada. This comes in handy when patients need to go to more specialized hospitals. For example, the plane could be used to fly a young patient to the Denver Children’s Hospital; a burn victim to the Burns Center at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota; or a patient to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota- all several hours away by ground transport. The usual eight hours  or driving time to Minneapolis can be done in about an hour and 40 minutes by plane, Chilson says.

The service allows the critical care flight crew the ability to respond to patient needs in times of bad weather, when the helicopter is unable to fly, Chilson adds. ”Additionally, the fixed wing service serves as a backup to the rotor wing service when the helicopter is down for routine maintenance or being used on another call.”

Typically, the helicopter is used to fly patients in from outlying hospitals and the airplane is used to fly patients out to other, more specialized hospitals.

NorthStar Criticair serves patients within a 150- mile radius of Trinity Hospital for adult, pediatric, high-risk neonatal and high-risk labor/delivery needs. The service is an extension of Trinity’s mission to improve the health of our region.

Collaborating with Executive Air Taxi Corp., NorthStar Criticair provides air response and rescue care 24 hours a day, every day, with a flight crew, paramedics and other specialists responding within minutes. Whether on a transport intercept with a rural ambulance, an emergency response in remote locations or a patient transfer from a rural facility, NorthStar Criticair represents Trinity Health’s commitment to offer its communities and residents the highest levels of service.

How to Live with Sleep Apnea

The National Sleep Foundation estimates that more than 18 million Americans have sleep apnea, a common sleep disorder. Sleep apnea is “an involuntary cessation of breathing” that occurs when a person is asleep, the American Sleep Apnea Association says. Mary Sather, RPSGT, CCSH, a sleep educator with the Trinity Sleep Center, adds that with sleep apnea, there is an absence of breath for 10 seconds or more.

“As you fall asleep and everything begins to relax, the tongue falls back into the throat or the airway collapses,” explained Jutta Schmidt, RPSGT, CCSH, a sleep educator and coordinator of the Trinity Sleep Center. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common type of sleep apnea. It is caused by a blockage of the airway, usually when the soft tissue in the back of the throat collapses during sleep, Schmidt said.

Do you have sleep apnea?

Common sleep apnea symptoms include:

• Waking up with a very sore or dry throat

• Loud, disruptive snoring

• Occasionally waking up with a choking or gasping sensation

• Sleepiness or lack of energy during the day

• Sleepiness while driving

• Morning headaches

• Restless sleep

• Forgetfulness, mood changes, and a decreased interest in sex

• Recurrent awakenings or insomnia

• Frequent nighttime urination

• High blood pressure

Risk factors

While sleep apnea can affect people regardless of gender, race or age, risk factors can include:

• Being male or a post-menopausal woman

• Excessive weight/obesity

• Over the age of 40

• Large neck size (greater than 16 inches for women and 17 inches for men)

• Enlarged tonsils or tongue

• Small lower jaw

• Gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) or heartburn

• Allergies

• Sinus problems

• Family history of sleep apnea

Diagnosis

Sleep apnea is diagnosed, either through home sleep studies, which are recorded through a Home Sleep Test, or through a more comprehensive in-lab sleep study; both are conducted by the Trinity Sleep Center. These studies record many perimeters, including breathing, air flow, oxygenation saturation and breathing effort, among others.

The results are read by a board-certified physician, Bahram Kordlar, MD. The patient would then meet with their provider, as well as a sleep educator, who would also monitor and follow up with the patient.

Treatment

Schmidt estimates that of the treatment options, “over 90 percent” will use a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device, rather than other options such as surgery or a dental appliance (mouthpiece).

“CPAP is the gold standard treatment for obstructive sleep apnea,” Sather added.

The sleep educator, who serves as a liaison between the Trinity Sleep Center, the physician and the Durable Medical Equipment (DME) provider (in this case, KeyCare Medical), will make it an easier and faster process from testing to successful CPAP use, Schmidt said.

If you believe you may have sleep apnea, talk to your provider. Questions can also be directed to the Trinity Sleep Center by calling 857-2348. The Trinity Sleep Center is located at Trinity Hospital – St. Joseph’s

Colorectal Cancer is Preventable

March is

Colonoscopies.

Just thinking about it – the prep, the procedure itself – could be enough to send a shiver down your spine. It isn’t necessarily pleasant, but in the end, colonoscopies can save your life.

According to the National Cancer Institute, studies suggest that colonoscopies have reduced deaths from colorectal cancer by about 60 to 70 percent.

Colorectal cancer, which includes cancer of the colon or the rectum, is the third most common cancer in the United States, not counting skin cancers. The lifetime risk of developing colorectal cancer is about 1 in 21, or 4.7 percent, for men and 1 in 23, or 4.4 percent, for women, the American Cancer Society states on their website, adding that it is expected that there will be 50,260 deaths from colorectal cancer in 2017. The American Cancer Society estimates there will be 95,520 new cases of colon cancer and 39,910 new cases of rectal cancer this year.

“The price to pay to have a colonoscopy is a very small price, when compared to having a diagnosis of colorectal cancer,” said Edmundo Justino, MD, a gastroenterologist with Trinity Health.

Justino said that it is heartbreaking to diagnose someone with colorectal cancer – especially because it is very preventable.

A colonoscopy, which involves an arduous preparation, is an examination of the colon in which a colonoscope is used, via entry from the anus, to inspect the colon and look for polyps or other abnormal signs. The patient is usually sedated during the procedure.

If polyps are found, they may be removed by passing a wire loop through the colonoscope to cut the polyp from the wall of the colon using an electric current.

Prior to the colonoscopy, the patient would drink 16 ounces of solution – a mixture of six ounces of cleanser and ten ounces of water – the night before the colonoscopy, as well as the day of.

“Drinking this is the only way to clean the colon,” Justino said. This is done with a “clear, liquid diet” the day before the procedure.

A 2016 report from the American Cancer Society states that the number of colonoscopies for people over the age of 50 has increased from 19 percent in 2000 to 55 percent in 2013.

However, in North Dakota, Justino says, the numbers of adults over the age of 50 – the recommended age one should get a colonoscopy – is still low.

“In North Dakota, we still rank poorly when compared to other states,” Justino said. When looking at statistics from other stations across the nation, “most states are able to reach close to 50 percent of the population. North Dakota, and a few other states, are in the forties.”

Ideally, Justino adds, “we would like to screen every eligible person – 100 percent.”

Cologuard
Those who are adverse to getting a colonoscopy have recently become acquainted with Cologuard, an alternative testing modality which is considerably less invasive. It involves the study of a stool sample.

“You go to the doctor, obtain a kit, take it home, collect a sample, and send it back,” Justino said.

The test can show abnormalities, but it cannot identify exactly what the abnormality is – is it colon cancer or just a polyp? Occasionally, it means the patient would need a colonoscopy in order to investigate what the abnormality is.

A caveat to this is that the Cologuard test can only apply to those who are low risk, meaning that if a patient has any family history of colorectal cancer or polyps, they are ineligible for the Cologuard test, Justino said. “High risk patients should not be doing Cologuard; they need a colonoscopy.”

Other modalities of screening
Outside of colonoscopies and Cologuard, there are other screening modalities that can be used for colorectal cancer.

High-sensitivity fecal occult blood test – This test checks the stool for blood, which may be a sign of polyps or cancer. Patients can provide stool samples at home, after they receive a kit from their healthcare provider. Those with a positive test will be referred for a colonoscopy. The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends these tests be done annually, starting at age 50.

Sigmoidoscopy – A sigmoidoscope, a thin tube with a light on the end, uses a tiny video camera to transmit images of the rectum and lower colon (called the sigmoid colon) to help detect polyps or cancer. Physicians can insert special instruments into the scope to biopsy and remove polyps. Typically, if polyps are found, the patient will require a colonoscopy for a more thorough analysis of the entire colon. The procedure, recommended every five years for individuals between 50 and 75, doesn’t typically require sedation. Patients need to give themselves an enema before the procedure to cleanse the lower colon.

Recommendations
Colonoscopies are recommended starting at the age of 50. After the first colonoscopy, someone with an average risk – that is, a person with no family history of cancer or polyps – should get a colonoscopy every 10 years; if there is a family history, it is recommended that they get a colonoscopy every five years.

If there is a family history of colon cancer or polyps, Justino recommends that you not wait until age 50 to get your first colonoscopy. The Cologuard test should be performed every year as an alternative to colonoscopies. Regardless of the modality, screening for colorectal cancer is important – especially as colon cancer is a disease that is very preventable, Justino noted.

Colonoscopies are the only test that studies have shown to decrease mortality, Justino said. “It decreases the number of people who die of colon cancer. There is no reason why people shouldn’t get a colonoscopy in this day in age.”

A referral is needed for a colonoscopy, with an order from your primary care physician. If you need a colonoscopy, please speak to your primary care physician.

National Nutrition Month: Loaded Baked Sweet Potatoes

Serves 4

Ingredients

4 medium sweet potatoes

1 teaspoon oil

1 cup chopped yellow onion

1 red bell pepper, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/4 teaspoon chipotle chili powder or cayenne pepper for extra spice

1 – 15 ounce can of low sodium black beans (do not drain)

3/4 cup low sodium tomato sauce

1/4 cup cheddar cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Poke holes in sweet potatoes with a fork then place on foil-lined baking sheet. Roast potatoes in the oven for 40-50 minutes or until you can poke a fork or knife into the middle of the potato. While the sweet potatoes are roasting, prepare the chili by heating oil over medium-high heat. Add in onion, bell pepper and garlic; cook until onion softens about 6-8 minutes. Next mix in chili powder, oregano, cumin and chipotle chili powder or cayenne; stir for 1 minute. Mix in beans and tomato sauce. Bring chili to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until sweet potatoes are done cooking and chili thickens. Once sweet potatoes are done, split them open. Place about 1/3 – 1/2 cup of chili in each potato, then sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of cheese. (You will most likely have extra chili leftover which you can serve on the side.) Place back in the oven about 5 minutes if you would like to melt the cheese. Top with cilantro, avocado and greek yogurt or sour cream, if desired.
