The Link Between Atrial Fibrillation and Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Identifying the association is important as treatment of the obstructive sleep apnea is often associated with an improved control of the atrial fibrillation and maintenance of rhythm control post cardioversion, reports Cardiac Rhythm News.

Moreover, atrial structural remodelling and conduction changes can occur with prolonged exposure to obstructive sleep apnoea over time, which consequently impairs treatment by all modalities if left untreated.
