VIDEO: Expert discusses associations between cardiovascular health, sleep disorders
May 4, 2015

Klar Yaggi, MD, MPH, director of the Yale Centers for Sleep Medicine, discusses the link between obstructive sleep apnea and adverse cardiovascular health outcomes.

“In early studies looking at the relationship between sleep apnea and cardiovascular outcomes … these informed us that patient’s with prevalent cardiovascular disease, prevalent stroke, had a very high prevalence of sleep apnea, on the border of 60% to 80% of patients have obstructive sleep apnea. The question at the time in the literature was the issue of causal direction between sleep apnea and cardiovascular outcomes. Is it the sleep apnea that is increasing the risk for adverse cardiovascular events or the reverse direction of causality?” Yaggi said during a presentation.
