OBJECTIVE This study aimed to investigate the sex-specific effects of anthropometric profiles on the occurrence and severity of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). METHODS We evaluated 151 patients with suspected OSA undergoing polysomnography and anthropometric measurements such as body mass index (BMI), neck and waist circumference (NC and WC), and waist-hip ratio (WHR). RESULTS In men, NC (P = .006), WC (P = .035), and WHR (P = .003) were significantly increased in OSA and all were… CONTINUE READING
