Purpose: This study is a retrospective descriptive study to investigate the factors affecting sleep quality of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) patients. Methods: Data were collected from questionnaires and electronic medical records of 176 patients with obstructive sleep apnea were reviewed from 2017 to 2018. The collected data was analyzed into descriptive statistics, t-test, Pearson's correlation, and multiple regression analysis. Results: The mean age of the subjects was 49.37 years and 94.4%(n=166) had low sleep quality. The quality of sleep of the OSA patients had correlations with daytime sleepiness, and depression. The significant factors influencing quality of sleep were Gender(${\beta}=.18$, p<.004), depression(${\beta}=.50$, p<.001), dry mouth (${\beta}=.15$, p<.016), Headache(${\beta}=.17$, p<.008), explained 37.1% of the variance. Conclusion: To improve their sleep quality, required for OSA patients who have the depression, daytime sleepiness.
