Risk for contracting COVID-19 was the same for patients with OSA and those without OSA. In contrast, among COVID-19 positive patients, OSA was associated with higher risk for hospitalisation. Our findings are in line with earlier works and suggest OSA as an independent risk factor for severe COVID-19.
Physical activity, sedentary behavior, and incidence of obstructive sleep apnea in three prospective US cohorts
A new study confirms that more physical activity and less time in front of the television may reduce the risk of developing obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The study, conducted by the European Lung Foundation, is the first to investigate the link of increased OSA with reduced physical activity and increased sedentary behaviour.
