Cheyne-Stokes respiration in heart failure: Only provocative pathophysiology will provide new insights!

Cheyne-Stokes respiration (CSR) - a type of periodic breathing characterised by periods of hyperventilation (crescendo-decrescendo pattern) that alternate with central apneas - is highly prevalent in patients with systolic heart failure (HF) [1 –3]. CSR has been hypothesised to further increase sympathetic drive and stroke volume, thus exerting detrimental effects if left untreated [4]. At least, this is what most people thought prior to publication of the SERVE-HF trial in 2015 [5]. This trial enrolled more than 1300 patients with systo lic HF and central sleep apnea who were randomly assigned to adaptive servo-ventilation (ASV) added to guideline-based medical therapy compared with guideline-based medical therapy alone (control) [5].

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is present in up to 25% of otherwise healthy individuals. OSA is associated with intermittent hypoxia, oxidative stress, sympathetic activation, and an inflammatory response. These perturbations mediate the role of OSA as an independent and modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD). OSA can induce CVD or accelerate the progression of CVD into an end-stage disorder, including heart failure and stroke. Current clinical recommendations are based on existing clinical trial data and the clinical experience of our program; current and future clinical trials will help to optimize manage...

Abstract Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) is the most common comorbidity in heart failure (HF) patients. SDB, including both central sleep apnea (CSA) and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), affects up to 70 % of all heart patients. Numerous studies have identified intermittent hypoxia, oxidative stress, and sympathetic activation as the main pathways through which SDB exerts its negative cardiovascular consequences. The etiological relation between SDB and HF is complex and multi-layered. On one level, SDB contributes to the progression of cardiovascular disease (CVD) into HF; on another level, SDB is a conseque...

Obstructive and central sleep apnea have been associated with increased risk of adverse cardiovascular events and mortality. Sympathetic dysregulation occurring as a result of the respiratory disturbance is thought to play a role in this increased risk. Sleep apnea increases the risk of arrhythmias, myocardial ischemia/infarction, stroke, and heart failure, all of which may increase mortality risk. A higher incidence of nocturnal arrhythmias, cardiac ischemia, and sudden death has been noted in subjects with sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). In this review, the association between SDB and each of these conditions is discus...
