ABSTRACT

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a major risk factor for perioperative adverse events. This study was conducted to develop and validate a concise and easy-to-use questionnaire for OSA screening in surgical patients. The four questions were respectively related to snoring, tiredness during daytime, observed apnea, and high blood pressure (STOP). For validation, the score from the STOP questionnaire was evaluated. The STOP-Bang model may be useful to categorize OSA severity, triage patients for diagnostic evaluation or exclude from harm. This study revealed that Obstructive sleep apnoe are more prevalent in Male than Female. Obstructive sleep apnea is increasing in prevalence and significantly increases cardiovascular morbidity and mortality by increasing sympathetic tone, inflammatory mediators, and cardiac stress.

Keywords: Apnoea, Blood pressure, BMI, Sleepy, OSA and their risk.
