Incidence of sleep apnea and association with atrial fibrillation in an unselected pacemaker population: Results of the observational RESPIRE study

Publication date2020
Abstract

Patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) often have sleep apnea (SA), but diagnosis of SA with polysomnography is costly. SA monitoring is a pacemaker feature that measures respiratory disturbance index, the sum of abnormal respiratory events divided by sleep duration.
