Description:

Sleep and Health in Men (SHM) started in 1984 when participants were first investigated with postal questionnaires and a subgroup underwent full whole-night polysomnography. At that time this was the first population-based study world-wide on the prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. Since then the cohort has been investigated another two times U1994 and 2007) with postal questionnaires and subgroups have been studied with whole-night sleep registrations, blood sampling, anthromometric measurements and oral glucose tolerance tests (OGTT). Information has also been obtained from national registers on mortality, diseases and on occupational accidents.
Apart from being the first population-based prevalence study within the field, data from this cohort have shown that sleep-disordered breathing is a risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality but also that the risk is age-dependent with higher risks at lower ages while there seem to be no increased risk after about age 60. Furthermore, published data have shown that obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is a progressive disease an

SND-ID: EXT 0173

Purpose:

The main aim of this population-based cohort study is to analyze risk factors for and long term evolution of sleep disturbances with main focus on sleep-disordered breathing. Another aim is to study consequences of sleep disturbances over time such as accidents and consequences for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality as well as effects on glucose metabolism.
