To assess the prevalence of sleep apnea in conscripts and contract soldiers, screening was performed using monitoring computer pulse oximetry (216 people). It was revealed that for conscripts, the problem of sleep apnea is not significant (12% are mild), while for contracted soldiers this problem is of serious importance, especially in the age group over 40 (prevalence reaches 46%, severe forms up to 11%). The frequency of contracted sleep apnea in military personnel to a large extent depends on age and the presence of concomitant obesity, as well as hypertrophy of palatine tonsils of the 3rd degree. It is proposed to carry out computer-assisted pulse oximetry during medical examination under contract with overweight, especially in combination with hypertrophy of the tonsils, as well as certain categories of military personnel (whose activities are related to the transportation of people in transport).
