Population-based epidemiologic studies have uncovered the high prevalence and wide severity spectrum of undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea, and have consistently found that even mild obstructive sleep apnea is associated with significant morbidity. Evidence from methodologically strong cohort studies indicates that undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea, with or without symptoms, is independently associated with increased likelihood of hypertension, cardiovascular disease, stroke, daytime… Expand

Epidemiology, risk factors, and consequences of obstructive sleep apnea and short sleep duration.
TLDR
The epidemiology, risk factors, and consequences of obstructive sleep apnea and short/long sleep duration are reviewed and it is shown that short habitual sleep duration can result in excessive daytime sleepiness and reduced neurocognitive function. Expand
Obesity and obstructive sleep apnea--clinical significance of weight loss.
TLDR
Clinicians should revise their previous attitudes, including suspicions about weight reduction as an effective treatment for OSA patients, and large well-controlled trials are needed to determine the overall efficacy of different treatment modalities and their long-term success. Expand
Sleep Medicine: Evidence-Based Clinical Practice
TLDR
In order to provide high-quality prospective care and reduce morbidity and mortality, the primary care physician must address and treat the underlying sleep disorders contributing to these common diagnoses. Expand
Epidemiology of Sleep Disturbances and Cardiovascular Consequences.
TLDR
Given the links between sleep disorders and adverse health outcomes, obtaining adequate quality and amounts of sleep should be considered a component of a healthy lifestyle, similar to good diet and exercise. Expand
Epidemiological aspects of obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
This article addresses OSA from an epidemiological perspective, from prevalence studies to economic aspects to co-morbidity, and suggests that the presence and severity of OSA and associated nocturnal hypoxemia are associated with an increased risk of diabetes and cancer. Expand
An update on obstructive sleep apnea and the metabolic syndrome
  • J. Lam, M. Ip
  • Medicine
  • Current opinion in pulmonary medicine
  • 2007
TLDR
Ass associations between obstructive sleep apnea and metabolic syndrome or its components are not fully established because of the confounding effect of obesity, and large randomized interventional trials are needed to identify any cause–effect relationship. Expand
Obstructive sleep apnea and type 2 diabetes: interacting epidemics.
TLDR
There is a need for further research to fully demonstrate a causal role for OSA in the development and severity of type 2 diabetes, and future studies must carefully consider the confounding effects of central obesity in examining the link between OSA and alterations in glucose metabolism. Expand
Burden of sleep apnea: rationale, design, and major findings of the Wisconsin Sleep Cohort study.
TLDR
The history and need for a population approach to understanding sleep apnea are outlined and a review of the first longitudinal population study of this disorder is provided to illustrate the population burden ofSleep apnea. Expand
Cardiovascular disorders associated with obstructive sleep apnea.

TLDR
Cardiac patients may not display the typical signs and symptoms of OSA, which underlines the need for collaborative guidelines to define a diagnostic strategy specifically oriented toward the evaluation of Osa in cardiovascular patients. Expand

Epidemiology of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.
TLDR
It is found that longitudinal change in AHI varies nonuniformly with age, sex and weight: older heavier may experience the highest rate of AHI increase over time and, thus, may benefit most from prospective monitoring. Expand
Obesity and weight loss in obstructive sleep apnea: a critical review.
TLDR
Surgical and nonsurgical approaches to weight loss have been evaluated, although most studies to date suffer from methodological limitations including lack of random assignment to treatment groups, confounding of treatment interventions, absence of untreated controls and lack of adequate follow-up assessment. Expand
Adiposity and cardiovascular risk factors in men with obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
Men with OSA have a marked excess of body fat that is not always reflected in measurements of body weight or BMI, and upper body obesity, hypertension, and impaired glucose tolerance occur more frequently than expected in this population. Expand
Smoking as a risk factor for sleep-disordered breathing.
TLDR
Current cigarette smokers are at greater risk for sleep-disordered breathing than are never smokers, and smoking cessation should be considered in the treatment and prevention of sleep- Disordered breathing. Expand
Studies in the genetics of obstructive sleep apnea. Familial aggregation of symptoms associated with sleep-related breathing disturbances.
TLDR
A significant familial aggregation of symptoms associated with sleep-disordered breathing that appears independent of familial similarities in weight is suggested. Expand
CLINICAL REVIEW ARTICLE: Epidemiology of sleep-related obstructive breathing
TLDR
Studies on the prevalence of OSAS based on polysomnography are reviewed here, as well as investigations where associated factors such as cardiovascular diseases and mortality were analysed. Expand
Population-based study of sleep-disordered breathing as a risk factor for hypertension.
TLDR
There is a dose-response relationship between sleep-disordered breathing and blood pressure, independent of known confounding factors and this relationship could account for hypertension in a substantial number of adults in the United States. Expand
Population and occupational screening for obstructive sleep apnea: are we there yet?
TLDR
The issues of population and specific group screening for OSA are considered by reviewing the general principles of screening for chronic disease and then applying these principles specifically in the case of OSA. Expand
Daytime hypertension in obstructive sleep apnea. Prevalence and contributing risk factors.
TLDR
The data suggest that the high prevalence of hypertension in OSA is primarily related to age and the excess obesity seen in these patients, particularly in morbidly obese young patients with OSA. Expand
