Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) is associated with cardiovascular outcomes and decreased exercise capacity including low functional capacity (LFC). The risk of long-term major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) when SDB and LFC co-occur has not been determined. Our sample included patients who
Abstract Background Observational data suggest that positive airway pressure (PAP) treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can reduce the risk of recurrent atrial fibrillation (AF) post-direct current cardioversion (DCCV) or catheter ablation. Methods We conducted a study of adult patients with AF and sleep apnea, stratified by age and gender, who underwent successful DCCV to sinus rhythm, and who were randomized to receive PAP or usual care. Those with sleepiness, significant cardiac or resp...
Periodic limb movements in sleep (PLMS) are associated with adverse outcomes in patients with heart failure (HF). The aim of this study was to investigate whether PLMS change in response to adaptive servo-ventilation (ASV) titration for central sleep apnea (CSA) in patients with HF. We examined
