Abstract: Objective: Polygraphy (PG) is an attractive alternative for diagnosing obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in patients with high pre-test probability. However, several patients may not present typical symptoms. In this scenario, it is unclear the performance of PG for diagnosing OSA in non-referred populations to sleep laboratories. Methods: Data from participants of the ELSA-Brasil cohort were used for this analysis. We performed an overnight home PG (Embletta Gold (TM)) synchronized with a wrist actigraphy (Actiwatch model 2 (TM)). The validation strategy comprised three scorings from each participant: 1) Original scoring (PG): Routine scoring using data from the exclamation button mark to define ""analysis start"" and ""analysis stop""; 2) Scoring using actigraphy data (PG+actigraphy): total sleep time defined by the actigraphy data; 3) Scoring using diaries (PG+diary): ""analysis start"" and ""analysis stop"" based on the diaries. Bland-Altman plots were generated to assess the agreements (Kappa) between each scoring strategy. Results: A total of 300 participants were included in the final analysis (45% males, mean age: 48 +/- 8 years). The frequency of OSA using the PG score was 27.3%. Despite small differences in the OSA severity index, we obtained a high concordance of AHI comparing the PG vs. PG+actigraphy (Kappa: 0.95) as well as PG+diary vs. PG+actigraphy (Kappa: 0.96). No significant changes in the OSA classification (mild, moderate and severe) were observed in the 3 protocols. Conclusion: Using a pragmatic approach to address OSA at home, our results suggest that PG is a useful tool for OSA diagnosis even in subjects not referred to sleep studies.
