Two studies presented at ERS 2023 demonstrated the potential of a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine to address cardiovascular (CV) risks in individuals with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA).
Use of e-cigarette (EC) shows a significant relation with a higher incidence of chronic stress and is indicative of poorer quality of life (QoL) in young adults, suggests a study presented at ERS 2023.
