Leading Cardiologists Already Integrate Our Sleep Solutions in their Practice
Sleep Apnea is an independent predictor of AF with a HR of 2.18. Diagnosis and Treatment of Sleep Apnea in our patients not only improves the outcome of ADF ablation, but it has important implications for their overall wellbeing. It reduces the risk for stroke, reduces blood pressure, and improve their vitality. At our institution, diagnosis and treatment of Sleep Apnea is integrated into the AF practice, and WatchPAT is like a home Holter monitor.
Sleep Apnea is an independent modifiable cardiovascular risk factor. A simple test differentiates and risk stratifies “snoring” and is necessary to impact the CV mortality and morbidity of disturbed sleep breathing.
It is unequivocally clear that we are not effectively treating our patients with AF unless we screen them for Sleep Apnea. Itamar has helped us with our smooth integration in our laboratory, the patients are sent home with a monitoring device, it takes zero effort from the clinician.
