Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea experience a drop in oxygen level during sleep which places added strain on the heart. This may affect heart function during the day, which in some patients can lead to shortness of breath during daily activities.

Treatment of OSA often improves daily shortness of breath as well as helps control asthma, chronic cough and acid reflux.
