The link between sleep apnea and AFib
Hi everyone. I know that this discussion probably belongs in the heart group but I have made several friends here and feel comfortable asking this question. I was recently diagnosed with sleep apnea and am adjusting well thanks to all of you. Half a year ago I was diagnosed with AFib and it was my cardiologist that ordered a sleep study. He feels that there is a link between sleep apnea and AFib. I just had a bad episode for 15 hours yesterday but thankfully am back in rhythm right now. I am curious as to how many of you with sleep apnea have AFib also?
Thank you always for your responses.
