Abstract / Description of output

Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is highly prevalent in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) and may contribute to CHF progression. We aimed to determine whether treatment of OSA with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) would improve subjective and objective measures of heart failure severity in patients with CHF and OSA.
