Unfortunately, there are some errors in the article which need to be corrected, and we apologise for any confusion which we have caused. These are as follows:

1. Table 2

The number of patients who answered the questionnaire should read 319 ( rather than 314)

Under this column, the percentage of males who answered the questionnaires should be 69% (rather than 70.5%) and the number of Chinese should be 76.4% (rather than 77.7%).

(A transcription error of 314 instead of 319 resulted in the incorrect percentages of male and Chinese patients)

2. Abstract and Table 3

The values are for AHI ≥5, ≥15, ≥30 ( instead of >)

3. Table 4

The sensitivity of STOP-BANG for predicting AHI ≥15 should read 91.3 (85.6–95.1) instead of 91.1
