Abstract

Despite advances in medical and surgical therapy, heart failure (HF) remains a common and serious problem. An association between HF and sleep-related breathing disorders has been recognized since Cheyne's observations in 1818, but only recently have treatment options targeting sleep-related breathing disorders become available. This overview will consider the clinical features, pathophysiology, and treatment options of sleep-related breathing disorders in patients with HF.
