Abstract


Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is highly prevalent in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and associated with reduced response to rhythm control strategies.1 Current international guidelines on AF management recommend a combined risk factor management (including OSA treatment), preferably delivered within an integrated care approach.2 Previously, we described the potential for a multidisciplinary integrated approach to comprehensively manage OSA and AF,3 but the implementation of OSA testing and treatment in daily AF care remains challenging ad inconsistent.
