Abstract

Women remain undiagnosed for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) due to unrecognized symptoms, lack of female-focused screening tools, and diagnostic criteria lacking sensitivity. Hormonal changes during pregnancy and menopause increase OSA prevalence. Early identification and treatment are needed to reduce the risk of severe comorbidities and adverse maternal outcomes.
