PURPOSE: Studies from North American clinics have reported that females with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) are about the same age as males but are heavier, have less severe apnea and make up a much smaller proportion of cases. However, there is a scarcity of reports comparing gender differences in polysomnographic findings among African American patients with OSAS.
