Sleep disturbance in smokers with preserved pulmonary function and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
This study compared the magnitude and correlates of sleep disturbance between smokers with preserved pulmonary function and those with airflow obstruction. It found that among smokers with clinically identified chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the severity of sleep disturbance is greater among those with preserved pulmonary function compared to those with airflow obstruction. Non-respiratory symptoms, such as depression, were associated with sleep disturbance in both groups.
