Abstract

Purpose

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and obstructive sleep apnea are two common respiratory diseases. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients co-morbid with obstructive sleep apnea are associated with increased cardiovascular adverse events, frequent acute exacerbations, and higher mortality. Only a few studies on obstructive sleep apnea among patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are available in Vietnam. The study aims to determine the prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in Vietnam.

Methods

This is a cross-sectional study in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease at multi-sites in Vietnam: the People’s Hospital of Gia Dinh, Bach Mai Hospital, Phoi Viet Clinics, and Lam Dong Medical College using type 3 sleep monitoring device at sleep labs to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea in all study participants.

Results

Two hundred seventy-eight patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease were enrolled. Among the patients, 93.2% were male, with an average age of 66.9 ± 9.3 and a BMI of 21.9 ± 3.8 kg/m2; 82.0% were symptomatic including 44.6% in group B and 37.4% in group D with average post-FEV1 of 49.8 ± 18.3% predicted values. One hundred seventeen patients (42.1%) with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease presented obstructive sleep apnea defined by AHI ≥ 15 events/h.

Conclusions

The prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in Vietnam was 42.1% for an AHI of ≥ 15 events/h.

Keynote webinar | Spotlight on medication adherence

Live: Thursday 27th June 2024, 18:00-19:30 (CEST)

WHO estimates that half of all patients worldwide are non-adherent to their prescribed medication. The consequences of poor adherence can be catastrophic, on both the individual and population level.

Join our expert panel to discover why you need to understand the drivers of non-adherence in your patients, and how you can optimize medication adherence in your clinics to drastically improve patient outcomes.
