We had a patient who struggled with AFib. His cardiologist sent him home with a heart monitor. He then started treating his OSA. His AFib stopped until one afternoon he took a nap without using his pap, it triggered his AFib.
He was convinced that he had to use his pap every time he slept. For the next 90 days while monitoring his heart and using pap. He did not have another episode of AFib.
There is a definite correlation with OSA and heart problems it is vital to your health to use your pap every time you sleep, especially if struggling with heart disease.
