The symptoms and characteristics of sleep apnea syndrome--excessive daytime sleepiness, loud snoring, restless and non-restorative sleep--are so impressive that it is difficult to understand why its recognition was delayed until the 1970s. The Centennial book of the American Thoracic Society credited Sidney Burwell for the discovery of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. This is only one of the many mistakes and misattributions regarding the history of the syndrome. The earliest descriptions of patients who presumably suffered from sleep apnea were made in the 19th century. The term "Pickwickian" in connection with sleepy patients was suggested in 1889. The first electrophysiological sleep recordings of Pickwickian patients and the understanding of the syndrome as disordered breathing in sleep, were made during the late 1950s and 1960s. Its recognition as a public health problem was facilitated by Young et al.'s [N Engl J Med 1993;328:1230-5] seminal paper documenting the prevalence of the syndrome in the general population, and by the accumulated evidence that the syndrome is a major cardiovascular risk factor. Bibliometric analysis of the literature on sleep apnea reveals that future research will focus on the long-term outcomes of the syndrome, on the effects of treatment, and on the mechanisms linking it with cardiovascular morbidity.
