Pacemaker apnea scan algorithms are able to screen for sleep apnea. We investigated whether these systems were able to accurately detect sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) in two patients from an outpatient clinic. The first patient suffered from ischemic heart failure and severe central sleep apnea (CSA) and underwent adaptive servoventilation therapy (ASV… CONTINUE READING
