Abstract :

Background: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is an important medical problem which has multiple consequences. Early detection and treatment of OSA can reduce these complications. However, although OSA is common, most of the patients affected are not diagnosed. Method: Primary health care physicians (PHCPs) inside Al-Hasa were asked to fill the obstructive sleep apnea Knowledge and Attitudes (OSAKA) questionnaire.Results: response rate was 63.8%. 60% knew about OSA association with hypertension. Only 23% knew that it is associated with cardiac arrhythmia.Conclusion: The majority of Al-Hasa PHCPs have insufficient knowledge toward OSA.
