  1. Sleep apnea syndrome symptoms and automobile driving in a general population.

    Article - En anglais

    Automobile accidents are reported as being overrepresented in those suffering from the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (SAS), evident by snoring, sleep disturbances and diurnal hypersomnia.

    An estimation of the prevalence of these symptoms amongst an adult population, predominantly automobile drivers, was assessed by using a one-stage questionnaire procedure.

    From a national random sample of 1214 persons a weighted reply rate of 76% was achieved.

    Snoring, breath cessations, mid-sleep awakenings, and diurnal hypersomnia were reported in 24, 3.8, 27 and 9.1%, respectively.
