OBJECTIVES: Nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP) treatment is the gold standard treatment for obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). In this study, we aimed to show that the pulmonary functions, exercise limitation on the cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET), and the health-related quality of life can be improved after a short treatment period by nCPAP.
