Poor Sleep Connected to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Recent study assessment from the Canadian Cohort Obstructive Lung Disease shows that people with poor sleep quality are at higher risk of developing the long-term chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
To assess the risk of the condition, a team of scientists analyzed data from 480 patients from the CanCOLD study who passed a follow-up assessment period that lasted for 18 months. Their sleep has been measured with the help of patient Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index (PSQI).
At the beginning of the study, of the 480 patients, 185 (38.5%) experience at least one condition recurrence during the observed period, and 203 (42.3%) showed poor sleep quality at the baseline.
After the 18-month period with the subsequent analysis of the received results, the researchers concluded that the patients with sleep disturbance had 95% higher risk of COPD.
