Objectives:
To assess the sleep quality of patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and evaluate the effect of cardiopulmonary coupling (CPC) analysis on sleep quality and its correlation with subjective complaints in patients with PD.

Conclusions:
The sleep quality of patients with PD was generally decreased. CPC analysis can reflect the subjective sleep quality of patients with PD and serve as an effective sleep monitoring tool.

Practical Significance:
CPC analysis can serve as a novel sleep monitoring tool to screen patients with “good” and “poor” sleep quality.
