    Objective: To correlate sleep quality with the severity of the patient's effort to polysomnography.

    Methods: A random sample of 15 adult patients of both genders, aged 29-68 years, who were referred for polysomnography examination at a hospital in the city of Porto Alegre / RS, Brazil, were randomly selected. In addition, all the patients in the sample received a Speech and Language Pathology Assessment Protocol for OSAHS (adapted) and later the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Questionnaire.

    Results: In applying the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality questionnaire, the average score was 19.7 points (out of a total of 42 points). The women presented higher indices than the men, revealing worse quality of sleep than these. When comparing the results of the questionnaire score with the severity categories of OSAHS, no relationship was observed between the variables, with the worst scores being obtained by the patients with OSAHS.

    Conclusions: We can not see the difference between the diagnoses of the polysomnography examination and the perception of sleep of the subjects, being the main clinical scores for patients with RERAs.
