Overnight polysomnography (PSG) is indispensable for diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome. However, studies on interscorer agreement on PSG scoring between laboratories are few. The purpose of this study was to examine the reliability of interscorer agreement on PSG scoring among 16 sleep laboratories in Japan. We found a relatively moderate interscorer reliability of the index of oxygen desaturation and arousal during sleep, but a relatively low reliability of the index of… CONTINUE READING
