PURPOSE: Multiple Myeloma (MM) is a hematologic malignancy which affects multiple organ systems. It also carries a high symptom burden including sleep disturbance, fatigue and pain. Studies evaluating sleep disruption in MM are limited. These patients are potentially at a higher risk for developing sleep disordered breathing (SDB) due to the use of narcotic pain medications and cardiac dysfunction. We hypothesize that there is an increased incidence of SDB in MM patients.
