Fact #1: Sleep Apnea Increases the Risk of AFib Recurrence

Sleep disordered breathing creates abnormal atrial substrate which can initiate AFib triggers.1 Left untreated, sleep apnea in AFib patients predicts recurrence of AFib, and leads to poor intervention outcomes.2

Fact #2: 49% of AFib Patients Also Suffer From Sleep Apnea.3

As many as half your cardiac patients may be at a heightened risk due to undiagnosed sleep apnea. The positive news is that diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea is associated with Lower Recurrence of AFib.4

Fact #3: Improving Your Patients’ Treatment Outcomes Couldn’t Be Easier.

Here’s the really good news. Even with patients at home and EP clinics closed, Total Sleep offers a complete care pathway for sleep apnea diagnosis and treatment to improve your treatment outcomes. It’s safe, simple and 100% hassle-free.
