A large epidemiological study using oximetry to analyze obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and metabolic comorbidities was performed in Japan; however, reliability and validity of oximetry in the Japanese population remains poorly understood. In this study, oximetry data from the epidemiological study were compared with data from clinically performed polysomnography (PSG) and out-of-center sleep testing (OCST) in epidemiological study participants who later attended our outpatient units.
