Abstract

Cardiorespiratory monitoring was performed within 72 hours from the occurrence of an acute coronary syndrome. An elevated rate of moderate-severe obstructive sleep apnea syndromes was detected, which was related to the severity of the coronarographic score. Twenty-three patients underwent a new polygraphic study 3 months after the acute event. All showed a reduced number of hypo-apnoeic events. The OSA severity at baseline did not predict a worse cardiac function at 3 months.
