Objective: Obstructive Sleep Apnea syndrome (OSAS) frequently seen in the adult population is an important public health problem. OSAS is related to increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. In studies, the relationship between OSAS, cardiovascular risk factors, and metabolic syndrome components is determined. This study aimed to evaluate the use of metabolic syndrome criteria to support prediagnosis of patients with sleep apnea who were admitted to sleep clinics.
