Structured exercise was significantly associated with a 23-percent lower odds ratio for moderate obstructive sleep apnea and 34-percent lower odds ratio for severe OSA, according to a study in the February issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine. The study also found a lack of association between OSA and occupational activity, suggesting the potential importance of programed physical exercise in OSA management.
