Sleep disorders, especially sleep breathing disorders, have not been well studied in the patients attending a family health center in Chile. Sleep breathing disorders have been linked to cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, which are important causes of morbidity and mortality. Method: We studied a randomized sample of 180 adult patients (135 women and 45 men, with a mean age of 45.6 years) consulting a public family health center with the Epworth Sleepiness Scale and a Sleep Questionnaire which include assessment of obesity, medical conditions, medications and smoking habit, blood pressure, sleep habits, snoring, breathing cessation, insomnia, daytime sleepiness and depressive symptomatology. Results: Hypertension was found in 37.2%, diabetes in 11.1%, dislipidemia in 19.4%, smoking in 34.4%. Body mass index = of 30 Kg/m2 was found in 38.3%. Twenty five patients (13.9%) had an Epworth score = of 15. Loud snoring was reported in 56.7%. Breathing cessation was reported by the sp
