Abstract

Objective: To assess prevalence of sleep disorder in Thai population. Materials and Methods: Thai Epidemiologic Stroke (TES) Study is a community based cohort study conducted in 5 provinces 4 regions of Thailand. All volunteers age 45-80 years were interviewed for risk factors of disease including sleep problems. Results: During 2004-2006, 19,997 volunteers were enrolled. Prevalence of snoring was 27.2%, loud snoring 20.3%, excessive daytime somnolence 4.5%, wake up with a choking during the night 3.7% and poor concentration during working 1.4%. From multiple regression analysis found that stroke was associated with a nocturnal awaking (OR=2.10; 95%CI, 1.09-1.02; P=0.026) and tended to have poorer concentration during working (OR=3.43; 95%CI, 0.96-12.29; P=0.059). Conclusion: Prevalence of sleep disorder in Thai population from TES study is high and is an associated risk factor for stroke.
