Revision of Estimation Method for an Established Morphometric Model for Prediction of Obstructive Sleep Apnea

This study was to estimate mean MM scores in a mixed Indian population and to test a revision of the method for making intraoral measurements. A total of 60 subjects were divided and included in the into two groups of 30 subjects each; Group 1: Patient group; Group 2: Control group. A comparative cross-sectional study design was employed and MM value as suggested by Kushida was estimated by applying their clinical rule. The measurements were made on the study models to ensure precise and accurate measurement of the anatomic distances, thus ensuring a greater accuracy for the morphometric model. The comparison of morphometric model values between OSA and non OSA groups showed an extremely statistically significant difference. The average predictive morphometric model value for OSA in this sample of Indian patients is only slightly lesser than that observed by Kushida results of this study could facilitate the early recognition of OSA and support the available diagnostic setup. This revised methodology may be used to widen the reach of the morphometric model from the sleep physician’s clinic to the Dental operatory.
