Overnight Sleep Study

Last updated: June 2022

When it comes to sleeping, those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) often have trouble getting a good night's rest. People who have COPD have an increased risk of developing sleep disorders, including insomnia, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and restless legs syndrome (RLS).1

The percentage of people with COPD who have sleep difficulties ranges from 34% to 78%, so having a sleep study with COPD isn't an uncommon occurrence.1

Jackie brings us along with her as she gets ready for her sleep study, and she describes her experience.
