Clinical Predictors of OSAHS in Bangladeshi Adult Population Prof. AKM Mosharraf Hossain FCPS,FCCP Chairman, Dept of Respiratory Diseases Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical Universiry


Population: 152.6 million (UN, 2005) Area: 143,998 sq km Life expectancy: 62 years (men), 63 years (women) (UN) GNI per capita: US $470 (World Bank, 2006)


Background ۩ Obstructive sleep apnea hypoapnea syndrome (OSAHS) is a common sleep disorder causing daytime dysfunction and cardiovascular diseases. ۩ PSG is the gold standard inevestigation to diagnose OSAHS. But it is expensive, time-consuming and inconvenient. ۩ This study will reveal clinical and anthropometric predictors of OSAHS in Bangladeshi adult population.


Snoring and Risk of Sleep Disordered Breathing-A pilot study in Bangladesh-Chest congress 2004 A.K.M.M. Hossain, M.A. Hasnat, M.A.J. Chowdhury, S.A. Haq, and M. Hasan The Berlin questionnaire and Epworth sleepiness scale (ESS) were used to identify patients of snoring and SDB. Subjects [N: 96; sex ( male/female): 66/30]; age [( yrs, m ± SD):33 ± 8] were selected from Chest clinic and Medicine OPD of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, Dhaka, Bangladesh. Snoring, daytime sleepiness, waketime tiredness are not less frequently seen in Bangladeshi population. Snoring and day time sleepiness was observed in 35% and 46% respectively.


Methodology ۩ Type of study: Cross-sectional,prospective ۩ Sampling: All patients attending JBFH sleep clinic from 1 st Jan ’06 to 30 th June,’06 were included in that study. Structured sleep interview, anthropometric measurement were taken. Patients were advised to undergo overnight Laboratory PSG. ۩ 63 patients were finally included. They were divided in 2 groups OSAHS and non-OSAHS.


Methodology-contd ۩ Comorbidities like HTN, DM and symptoms like snoring, apneas, EDS, fatigue, awakenings, leg movements, nocturia and ESS, lowest SpO2 were compared between OSAHS and others by Chi-square and Student’s t test. ۩ OSAHS was defined as AHI≥ 5 with EDS. ۩ All analysis were done with SPSS version 12.


Results ۩ Out of 63 subjects (age:M ±SD, 47 ±11.55 in yrs; sex: m/f,46/17) OSAHS was diagnosed in 30 (47.6%) patients, 33 had primary snoring or normal.

Relation of OSAHS & BMI OSAHS & BMI (P<.01)


P=.07 P=.07


Conclusion ۩ In a referral Sleep disorder centre of Bangladesh, we observed OSAHS in 47%. ۩ OSAHS has significant relation with BMI, EDS, frequent awakening, dry throat & ESS ۩ EDS and leg movements were found to be independent predictor of OSAHS. ۩ Further study with large sample size may reveal the problem in our population
