BACKGROUND Cheyne-Stokes respiration (CSR-CSA) is often observed in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). Although cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is effective for CHF patients with left ventricular dyssynchrony, it is still unclear whether adaptive servo ventilation (ASV) improves cardiac function and prognosis of CHF patients with CSR-CSA after CRT. METHODS AND RESULTS Twenty two patients with CHF and CSR-CSA after CRT defibrillator (CRTD) implantation were enrolled in the… CONTINUE READING
