Prevalence of excessive daytime sleepiness and associated factors in women aged 35-49 years from the "Pindamonhangaba Health Project" (PROSAPIN)



Prevalence of excessive daytime sleepiness and associated factors in women aged 35-49 years from the "Pindamonhangaba Health Project" (PROSAPIN)



Revista Da Associacao Medica Brasileira 58(4): 447-452



To estimate the prevalence of excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) and to identify associated factors in women aged 35 to 49 years from the "Pindamonhangaba Health Project" (PROSAPIN). This was a cross-sectional observational study of 372 women aged 35 to 49 years, randomly selected from the Family Health Strategy (FHS) program of the city of Pindamonhangaba, SP, Brazil, where the "Pindamonhangaba Health Project" (PROSAPIN) is being developed. EDS was assessed through interviews using the Epworth Sleepiness Scale and the associated factors through questions that investigated sociodemographic characteristics, gynecological history, presence of comorbidities, lifestyle, sleep routine, and use of drugs capable of altering the state of alertness; anthropometric variables were also measured. The prevalence of EDS was estimated with a 95% confidence interval (95% CI) and the associated factors were identified through a multiple logistic regression model performed with the Stata software, release 10.0. EDS prevalence was 18.5% (95% CI: 14.7-22.9) and the associated factors were: profession related to domestic services (OR = 2.2, 95% CI: 1.1-4.3), physical activity level above the mean of the study population (OR = 1.9, 95% CI: 1.1-3.4), and presence of features suggestive of anxiety (OR = 1.9, 95% CI: 1.1-3.4). The prevalence of EDS in women aged 35-49 years from PROSAPIN was high and associated with sociodemographic characteristics, presence of comorbidities, and lifestyle.
