The effect of heart transplantation on Cheyne-Stokes respiration associated with congestive heart failure.

Abstract

Cheyne-Stokes respiration occasionally accompanies the terminal stages of congestive heart failure. We describe this association in a patient requiring heart transplantation. The gradual abatement of Cheyne-Stokes respiration after transplantation supports the delayed circulatory time theory as the mechanism for Cheyne-Stokes respiration in these patients.
