PURPOSE: A cross sectional study in June 2012 proposed to assess the relationship between obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and smoking, alcohol use and overweight/obesity in patients with sleep breathing disorders.

METHODS: All patients with suspected sleep breathing disorders were screened for OSA by respiratory polygraphy in a Sleep Laboratory. Medical history, demographic parameters and anthropometric measurements were determined, as well as smoking and daily alcohol use. Body mass index (BMI) was calculated. Metabolic and cardiovascular diseases, including stroke were evaluated. Patients were grouped in smokers (S) and nonsmokers (NS). Parameters of repiratory polygraphy were analyzed in correlation with number of pack cigars smoking. Alcohol use was correlated with smoking. Two categories of alcohol abusers with and without anxiety were defined. SPSS statistical analysis was performed.
