Obstructive Sleep Apnea is known to be an overall public health problem that, among other things, increases morbidity and mortality. Risk factors as well as symptoms of this multidimensional sleep-related breathing disorder negatively affect the Quality of Life. Within our study we aimed to expose the association between Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Quality of Life in the population of Pomerania, Germany. We utilized data from the population-based Study of Health in Pomerania (SHIP). Health status and risk factors information about 4,420 participants (2,275 women) were gathered within the cohort SHIP-TREND, of which 1,209 (559 women) underwent an overnight polysomnography and completed sleep questionnaires. Quality of Life of the participants was measured using the Short-Form 12 questionnaire. For our study an ordinal regression analysis with age, sex, body mass index and the Short-Form 12 health survey as predictors for the Apnea-Hypopnea Index was computed. The potential factors affecting Quality of Life are different between physical and mental dimensions of Quality of Life. Significant effects were found regarding age, sex, body mass index, and the Short-Form 12 mental component summary but not the physical component summary.
