Exercise & OSA

According to this study performed in 2011, exercise produces a positive effect on sleep quality and OSA severity. The participants listed here were 43 overweight adults aged 18-55 with a moderate – severe OSA diagnosis.  The 12-week exercise program demonstrated that exercise was a conduit in the reduction of AHI in sedentary overweight/obese adults.  Research has indicated that physically active patients have a reduced risk of OSA compared to inactive or less active individuals.  To read the full article on exercise and obstructive sleep apnea, please click on the PDF on the following link … https://academic.oup.com/sleep/article/34/12/1631/2454593
