This study is part of the collection Swedish Cohort Consortium (Cohorts.se)

Creator/Principal investigator(s):

Eva Lindberg - Uppsala University, Department of Medical Sciences

Description:

Most previous research on obstructive sleep apnea has been performed in men and male patients are still overrepresented at sleep clinics. This study started in year 2000 with postal questionnaires to a non-selected female population in Uppsala, Sweden that was responded by 7.051 participants. On a subgroup of 400 women with oversampling of habitual snorers, careful clinical investigations were performed including anthropometric measurements, blood sampling, full-night polysomnography and oral glucose tolerance tests (OGTT). Ten years later, in year 2010, all responders were restudied with postal questionnaires. In addition, all participants who underwent full polysomnogrphy at baseline were invited to a new identical investigation. Beside all measurements that were performed at baseline, also a dynamic spirometry and ultrasound investigations of carotid arteries were performed at the follow-up. Data have also been obtained from national registers on causes of death, diseases, drug prescription and occupational accidents.
Important results from this cohort are that the prevalence of obstructiv
