Sleep Apnea is characterized by cessation (apnea) or semi-cessation of breathing (hipopnea) while asleep. The most important effect of Sleep Apnea is the daily somnolence which is one of the most important causes of traffic accidents. Thus, it is crucial to conduct research on the topic to analyze different parameters, such as where it is conducted, who are the most productive scientists, in which journals it is published, and whether the number of studies on the subject is rising. The purpose of the current study was to analyze these parameters on the Web of Science in the first decade of the 21st Century. It was found that the number of studies on the topic is increasing; the countries with the highest number of studies were the USA, Germany and Canada. The most productive authors were David Gozal (USA), T. Douglas Bradley (Canada) y Patrick Levy (France). The journals with the highest number of articles were Sleep, Chest and American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
