Abstract

Beginning from 1970’s, studies on respiratory physiology during sleep and physiopathological events in pulmonary diseases have given background to the therapy of patients with pulmonary problems (Williams, 1978). In some specialized centers the patients with COPD are studied extensively and the effects of sleep on respiratory functions and the sleep disorders originating from respiratory problems in these patients have gained new dimensions (Wynne et al., 1979). Some of these findings have shown that polysomnography can help the clinician (Guilleminault et al., 1980).
