PURPOSE: Sleep disorders are common in COPD patients, particularly coexisting Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). These patients also experience reduced health-related quality of life (HRQoL) caused by dyspnoea, systemic effects and co-morbidities. There is insufficient data assessing sleep quality and quality of life from our region. In this study, we explored quality of sleep in COPD patients without suspected OSA and the relationship between sleep quality and quality of life in these patients.
