Abstract

Introduction: Diagnosis of sleep apnea syndrome (SAS) depends on nocturnal polysomnography (nPSG), but waiting time for the test is long. Although, performing PSG in patients with excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) at daytime (dPSG) was questioned, role and methods are not clear. The aim of the study was to assess the role of dPSG in the diagnosis of SAS, and the correlation between nPSG and dPSG.
