PURPOSE: Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) is a known comorbidity of heart failure (HF). SDB includes both obstructive and central/Cheyne-Stokes respiration events. Previous studies have demonstrated the prevalence of SDB in chronic HF patients to be approximately 50-76%, however SDB testing is not routine in clinical practice and little data exists on acute decompensated HF patients.
