Body mass index and other predictive factors of sleep apnea in people with fibrotic lung diseases


  • Body mass index (BMI) and other potential predictive factors of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) were identified in non-obese people with fibrotic lung disease (FLD).

Why this matters

  • Even in overweight people with FLD, it would be advisable to screen for OSA to aid the poor prognosis of the disease.
