Abstract

We studied 44-year old man with heart failure (ejection fraction -25%). Obesity, arterial hypertension, snoring and excessive daytime sleepiness suggested concomitant obstructive sleep apnoea. Limited polysomnography with Polymesam revealed typical Cheyne-Stokes respiration with mainly central apnoeas (RDI = 48/hour). We did not find any obstructive episodes during sleep study. Patient responded to CPAP therapy and apnoea hypopnoe index decreased to 12/hour on 8 mbar pressure.
