Associação entre parâmetros do sono e atividade física em corredores durante a pandemia de COVID-19

Palavras-chave: Sonolência diurna excessiva, Qualidade do sono, Atividade física, COVID-19


Determinar associação entre qualidade do sono (QS), sonolência diurna excessiva (SDE) e a atividade física (AF) em corredores de rua durante a pandemia de COVID-19. Em 86 voluntários, as seguintes variáveis foram avaliadas: QS (pelo Índice de Qualidade do Sono de Pittsburgh, ESE (pela Escala de Sonolência de Epworth) e a AF (pelo aplicativo Google Fit®). Utilizou-se o teste de correlação de Pearson ou teste de correlação de Spearman. A análise de regressão linear simples foi realizada entre as variáveis que apresentaram correlação. Consideraram-se significantes os valores de p < 0,05. Houve correlação entre a SDE e a contagem de passos, bem como entre a SDE e a AF. Verificou-se associação entre a SDE e a AF, mas não entre a QS e a AF.
