Abstract

Background: sleep disorder can be considered as a relevant factor in patients with cardiovascular risk.
Objective: the main objective of this study is to associate sleep disorder as a determining factor for the decrease or increase in cardiovascular risk in the adult population.
Methods: transversal analytical study based on secondary records obtained from the database of the third National Health Survey from 2016-2017, with a total of 6,233 respondents aged 15 years and over, through a random and complex selection (stratified and multistage by conglomerates). Data from the Epworth Scale and cardiovascular risk classification were used. Binary logistic regression was applied with the R 3.2.2 “svy” package.
Results: a statistically significant association was found between high cardiovascular risk and Epworth scores between 11-21 points (compared with 0-10 points) adjusted for sex and age (ß= 0.63; p=0.002).
Conclusion: there is observational evidence that allows associating the sleep disorder with a higher risk of developing and / or dying from cardiovascular disease in the Chilean adult population.
