Sleep apnea syndrome (SAS) is one of the causes of hypertension, relating to cardiovascular risk and cardiovascular disease, independently associated with other risks. Method Cross-sectional study with the short-term follow up and compare to the control group. Include 230 patients: 134 hypertension patients and 96 non-hypertension patients. We using hand-made SASD-14 (Sleep Apnea Syndrome Detective-2014), compare with portable polysomnography StarDust II combine with clinical symptoms to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. Result (1) AHI in the OSAS patients with hypertension is 29.77 ± 13.03, higher than AHI in the OSAS patients without hypertension 25.21 ± 14.37 (p < 0.05). (2) There are strong positive correlation between AHI and systolic blood pressure with r = 0.407, p < 0.001. In multivariable analysis the affect of cardiovascular risk to AHI: two risks with statistic signification are degree of hypertension (p < 0.01) and obesity (p < 0.05). (3) The Kappa index for the SASD-14 compare with StarDust II is 0.775 (p < 0.01). Conclusion There is the signification relationship between hypertension and OSAS; SASD-14 can be use for diagnosing obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.
