PURPOSE: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common sleep disorder that involves episodic apneas during sleep. Previous studies have suggested an association between OSA and maternal hypertension (HTN) during pregnancy, but the incidence of OSA in pregnant women is not well known. The purpose of the study is to determine the associations within OSA in pregnant women who have high-risk pregnancies due to obesity, pre-eclampsia, and/or hypertension. We examined the risk and incidence of OSA in high-risk pregnancies and we also compared levels of sleepiness and quality of sleep within the study population.
