Effects of Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea also affects heart rhythms. Of patients with sleep apnea, 32-82% were also found to have atrial fibrillation. Patients who underwent cardioversion to treat their atrial fibrillation, and were treated for sleep apnea, were more likely to be converted into normal heart rhythms.
