Prolonged P-wave duration, indicating atrial conduction delay, is a marker of left atrial abnormality and is reported as a potent precursor of atrial fibrillation (AF). Several studies have shown that obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with AF. We evaluated the relationship between OSA and prolonged P-wave duration. Consecutive subjects who underwent overnight polysomnography and showed a normal sinus rhythm, had no history of AF or ischemic heart disease, and showed no evidence of… CONTINUE READING
