AbstractObstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) is a common disorder associated with early atherosclerosis, diabetes mellitus, ischaemic heart disease and cerebrovascular disease. The gold standard for confirming OSAS is based on an attended overnight polysomnography (PSG) in a sleep laboratory; however lack of health-care resources creates long waiting times for patient access to this diagnostic test. This study evaluated the ability of a portable sleep-monitoring device to identify patients in Hong Kong with suspected OSAS.
