Abstract

Background and Purpose: Genioglossus muscle and inspiratory muscle have been showed contributing towards obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea (OSAH) Nonetheless currently little is known about the effects of tongue muscle training (TMT) and threshold inspiratory muscle training (TIMT) on quality of life (QOL) physical activity and depression state Therefore aside from evaluating the impacts of OSAH on QOL physical activity and depression we would like to evaluate the effects of tongue muscle and inspiratory muscle training on QOL physical activity and depression Methods: 61 moderate to severe OSAH participants were compared with 22 control participants on QOL physical activity and depression state In addition OSAH participants were assigned to TMT TIMT and CPAP group Re-evaluations were performed after one month and three months post interventions Results: OSAH group was significantly lower in tongue protrusion strength (p
