Extent of daytime sleepiness also was evaluated along with numerous other factors including years with CAD, body mass index and extent of other health problems. After controlling for clinical and demographic variables, researchers found daytime sleepiness to be "a significant negative predictor of QOL" in four statistical models studied. "Daytime sleepiness had pervasive and detrimental effects on chronic angina patients' QOL including generic and disease-s
