Abstract: Objective To investigate the relationship between neck circumference, waist circumference and extent of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome(OSAHS) in males. Methods Clinical data of 200 OSAHS patients, diagnosed by polysomnography from January 2013 to July 2013, were reviewed. The relationship between neck circumference, waist circumference, BMI, age, sex, and AHI, LSaO2, TS90%, ESS were analyzed. Results ① No association was found between age, BMI, AHI, LSaO2 and TS90%, ESS. Neck circumference and waist circumference were positively correlated with AHI, TS90% and ESS, but negatively correlated with LSaO2. ② Stepwise multiple regression analysis showed both circumferences were associated with AHI, TS90% and LSaO2. Conclusion Neck circumference and waist circumference are associated with severity of OSAHS in male patients.

Key words: Waist circumference, Sleep apnea hypopnea, obstructive, Polysomography, Neck circumference
