REM Sleep Cardiac Arrhythmia

An REM sleep cardiac arrhythmia is a change from the normal rate or rhythm of the heart’s contractions. People who have coronary artery disease and whose blood oxygen is lowered by sleep-disordered breathing may be at risk for arrhythmias, which often take place during REM sleep. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment may reduce this risk.
