Abstract

Purpose of review: To update the reader on the most recent developments linking obstructive sleep apnea to cardiovascular disease. Recent findings: Significant progress has been made in defining the relationship between obstructive sleep apnea and cardiovascular disease. However, much work remains to be done to clarify the pathophysiologic mechanisms and the potential role of treatment of sleep apnea in the prevention of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Summary: At present there is only limited evidence to recommend the routine treatment of obstructive sleep apnea specifically for the prevention of cardiovascular disease.
