  • Objective It is unclear whether all snoring patients require polysomnography, and there are no highly sensitive clinical predictors of sleep apnea. [...] Key Method Study Design Prospective, IRB-approved study at a university sleep disorders center. Subjects and Methods In 211 patients undergoing polysomnography, snoring severity, Epworth sleepiness scale, body mass index, demographic, and sleep study data were collected.Expand Abstract
