EP Clinics' Daily Routine Has Changed

However, You Can Still Improve AFib Treatment Outcomes While Patients are Staying at Home

 
 
 

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 AFib patients may be at a heightened risk due to undiagnosed sleep apnea. Diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea is associated with lower the risk of AFib recurrence.4

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

Even with patients at home, Total Sleep Solutions offers a complete care pathway for sleep apnea diagnosis and treatment, improving treatment outcomes. It’s as simple as a click of a button.
