From: Association between physical activity and sleep-disordered breathing in male Japanese workers: a cross-sectional study

  Physical activity tertile (range) [MET-h/week]
Low Middle High P for trend
(0–9.65) (9.9–45.2) (45.3–376.8)
Cases (RDI ≥15), n 14 24 4  
Controls (RDI <15), n 36 39 39  
Crude OR (95% CI) 1 (reference) 1.58 (0.71, 3.52) 0.27 (0.08, 0.88) 0.007
Adjusted OR (95% CI)a 1 (reference) 1.65 (0.71, 3.83) 0.41 (0.12, 1.45) 0.075

  1. Italics indicates statistically significant values (P < 0.05)
  2. Respiratory disturbance index (RDI), dichotomized as ≥15 or <15 episodes/h, was used as a dependent variable
  3. aAdjusted for age (continuous)
  4. bAdjusted for age (continuous) and body mass index (continuous)
  5. cAdjusted for age (continuous), body mass index (continuous), education (junior/technical college or lower, university or higher), marital status (cohabiting after marriage, all other values), history of hypertension (yes, no), current smoker (yes, no), regular drinker (yes, no), and night shift work (yes, no)
