Overnight fluid shift from the legs to the neck and lungs may contribute to the pathogenesis of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and central sleep apnoea (CSA). We hypothesised that exercise training will decrease the severity of OSA and CSA in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) by decreasing daytime leg fluid accumulation and overnight rostral fluid shift.Patients with CAD and OSA or CSA (apnoea-hypopnoea index >15 events per h) were randomised to 4 weeks of aerobic exercise training or… CONTINUE READING
