Brief Summary:
As long as the people stay at home because of the Covid 19 outbreak, the investigators assume that the sleep quality of OUAS patients, like everyone else, and the sleep quality of COVID-19 outbreak are reduced due to anxiety and anxiety in people. In addition, we assume that sleep quality and physical activity level are related to health literacy level and fear of movement (kinesiophobia). In this study; the investigators aimed to determine how patients are affected by this process by evaluating sleep quality, physical activity, fear of movement and health literacy in OSAS patients during our stay in the COVID-19 outbreak.

Condition or disease
Obstructive Sleep Apnea-hypopnea Syndrome

Detailed Description:
Research Ahi Evren Chest Cardiovascular Surgery Training Research Hospital will be performed in patients between the ages of 18-70 years, diagnosed with OSAS in the sleep laboratory. Sleep quality, physical activity, fear of movement and health literacy will be evaluated in OSAS patients. Evaluations will be made by phone In order for the study to be strong, it will be tried to reach the maximum patient that can be taken between June 2020 and October 2020.

mild, moderate and severe OSAS patients
healthy individuals without chronic disease

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Physical Activity [ Time Frame: 1 day ]

    International Physical Activity Questionnaire/ In activity-specific scoring, walking under the heading of the fields is calculated by the sum of the moderate intensity activity and intensive activity in itself.

    From these calculations, a score is obtained in MET-minutes. There are 3 categories of physical activity level classification. Physical activity levels are classified as physically inactive (inactive), low level of physical activity (minimally active) and sufficient level of physical activity (very active)

  2. Sleep Quality [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    The Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Daytime Sleepiness [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    In order to measure the general sleepiness of people during the day, it was evaluated with a standard questionnaire, which is defined as Epworth sleepiness scale (EUS) and consists of 8 questions. The answers for each question are scored between 0 and 3 and the total score is obtained. The score obtained above 10 in EUS has high sensitivity and specificity for daytime sleepiness.

  2. Fear of movement [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    Tampa Kinesiophobia Scale (TKS)The person gets a total score between 17-68. The high score on the scale indicates that kinesiophobia is also high

  3. Health literacy [ Time Frame: 1 day ]

    Translated into Turkish TURKEY health literacy SCALE-32 (Tsoy-32) will be used. It was used to evaluate the literacy rates of individuals over the age of 15.

    0 indicates the lowest health literacy and 50 indicates the highest health literacy.

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Circadian rhythm evaluation [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    In the human circadian rhythm, the Morning Morning-Evening Survey (SAA) form was used, which determined morning and evening types.
