CPAP increases physical activity in obstructive sleep apnea with cardiovascular disease

This study shows that individuals with moderate-severe OSA and co-occurring CV disease when treated with CPAP therapy report higher levels of physical activity and fewer physical health limitations than their counterparts receiving usual CV care alone. Therefore, although CPAP did not directly reduce the risk of secondary CV events during the SAVE trial,the results of this analysis suggest that CPAP users are more likely to engage in physical activity that, if sustained over a longer time horizon and confirmed by objective activity measures, could reduce the recurrence of CV events as well as provide other long term positive benefits for health and wellbeing.
