‘Breathing Training Improves Sleep And Cardiovascular Health In Obstructive Sleep Apnea’

“Unfortunately, the gold-standard of treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), has discouraging compliance rates. Here, we report on inspiratory muscle strength training (IMST) as a potential new treatment for OSA.”


“Results support inspiratory muscle strength training as a treatment that can improve the cardiovascular and sleep quality parameters in individuals with mild-moderate OSA.”
