Sleep Apnoea Linked To Early Sign of Heart Failure
A study published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine indicates that severe obstructive sleep apnoea is linked to the high risk of subclinical myocardial injury. It is the first study of its kind to independently establish that the severity of OSA is linked to early heart damage that eventually leads to heart disease or heart failure.
A total of 1,645 participants were recruited for the study and were free of heart disease or heart failure. The participants were followed up for a period averaging 21.4 years. OSA was linked to high levels of high sensitivity troponin T (hs-TnT), a predictor of coronary heart disease and heart failure.
