PURPOSE: New-onset postoperative atrial fibrillation (POAF) is a highly prevalent complication after cardiac surgery with substantial effects on outcomes. Previous studies have reported that obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a risk factor for POAF after cardiac surgery. However, it is unknown whether the high risk for developing OSA but yet undiagnosed OSA also increases the risk of POAF.
