Summary of "Does obstructive sleep apnea affect exercise capacity and the hemodynamic response to exercise? An individual patient data and aggregate meta-analysis."

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has been linked to altered cardiovascular response to exercise. A systematic review and individual patient data (IPD) meta-analysis were conducted to assess whether OSA patients present reduced exercise capacity. PubMed, Embase and Web of Science were searched until September 2018. Studies which performed sleep recording in both OSA patients and controls and measured maximal oxygen consumption (VO) via a maximal exercise test were included. IPD were provided for five trials upon the 18 eligible (N = 289) and a two-stage IPD meta-analysis model was used, allowing to standardize the apnea cutoff and adjust for confounders. IPD meta-analysis demonstrated that moderate to severe OSA patients had similar VO (mean difference: -1.03 mL·kg min; 95%
 -3.82 to 1.76; p = 0.47) and cardiovascular response to exercise compared to mild or non-OSA patients. By contrast, aggregate data (AD) meta-analysis including the 13 trials for which IPD were unavailable (N = 605) revealed that VO was reduced in OSA patients compared to controls (mean difference: -2.30 mL·kg min; 95%
 -3.96 to -0.63; p < 0.001) with high heterogeneity. In conclusion, IPD meta-analysis suggests that VO and the cardiovascular response to exercise are preserved in moderate to severe OSA patients while AD meta-analysis suggests lower VO in severe OSA.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition associated with multiple episodes of sleep apnea which are distinguished from obstructive sleep apnea (SLEEP APNEA, OBSTRUCTIVE) by the complete cessation of efforts to breathe. This disorder is associated with dysfunction of central nervous system centers that regulate respiration. This condition may be idiopathic (primary) or associated with lower brain stem lesions; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (LUNG DISEASES, OBSTRUCTIVE); HEART FAILURE, CONGESTIVE; medication effect; and other conditions. Sleep maintenance is impaired, resulting in daytime hypersomnolence. Primary central sleep apnea is frequently associated with obstructive sleep apnea. When both forms are present the condition is referred to as mixed sleep apnea (see SLEEP APNEA SYNDROMES). (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p395; Neurol Clin 1996;14(3):611-28)

Disorders characterized by multiple cessations of respirations during sleep that induce partial arousals and interfere with the maintenance of sleep. Sleep apnea syndromes are divided into central (see SLEEP APNEA, CENTRAL), obstructive (see SLEEP APNEA, OBSTRUCTIVE), and mixed central-obstructive types.

Dyssomnias (i.e., insomnias or hypersomnias) associated with dysfunction of internal sleep mechanisms or secondary to a sleep-related medical disorder (e.g., sleep apnea, post-traumatic sleep disorders, etc.). (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)

A disorder characterized by recurrent apneas during sleep despite persistent respiratory efforts. It is due to upper airway obstruction. The respiratory pauses may induce HYPERCAPNIA or HYPOXIA. Cardiac arrhythmias and elevation of systemic and pulmonary arterial pressures may occur. Frequent partial arousals occur throughout sleep, resulting in relative SLEEP DEPRIVATION and daytime tiredness. Associated conditions include OBESITY; ACROMEGALY; MYXEDEMA; micrognathia; MYOTONIC DYSTROPHY; adenotonsilar dystrophy; and NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p395)

HYPOVENTILATION syndrome in very obese persons with excessive ADIPOSE TISSUE around the ABDOMEN and DIAPHRAGM. It is characterized by diminished to absent ventilatory chemoresponsiveness; chronic HYPOXIA; HYPERCAPNIA; POLYCYTHEMIA; and long periods of sleep during day and night (HYPERSOMNOLENCE). It is a condition often related to OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA but can occur separately.
