CASE PRESENTATION A 58-year-old woman with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease was admitted to the neurology service for inability to walk.

Three months later, the patient underwent a nocturnal polysomnogram for progressive daytime somnolence. The study demonstrated obstructive sleep apnea for which she was begun on continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP).
