Abstract

Introduction: Sleep deprivation is known to increase the risks for workplace accidents, neuro-behavioural symptoms and reduced quality of life. Shift work leads to sleep related problems, such as sleep deprivation, poor sleep quality and daytime sleepiness. The purpose of our study is to assess snoring prevalence and obstructive sleep apnoea risk among healthcare workers (HCWs) by using the Berlin Questionnaire.
