Abstract

The Importance of “Sleepy Snorers” in the ENT Snoring Clinic

Sleepy snoring, persistent snoring plus somnolence in the absence of an elevated apnoea/ hypopnea index (AHI), is a neglected but a potentially important milestone en route to the development of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). We aimed to estimate the importance of “sleepy snorers” in current ENT practice.

Methods: Review of the outcome of 214 sleep studies requested from ENT clinics in our institution

Keywords: Obstructive sleep apnoea; Snoring; Apnoea-hypopnea index
