Abstract

This article reviews current evidence on the impact of treatment of obstructive sleep apnea with continuous positive airway pressure on specific cardiovascular outcomes, namely, subclinical atherosclerosis (endothelial dysfunction), coronary heart disease, cardiac arrhythmias, and stroke. The scope of this article is restricted to studies that involve obstructive sleep apnea. The database PubMed was searched from 1990 to February 2013 for all relevant articles pertaining to these cardiovascular conditions and a critical review of each article was conducted. Articles with the most scientific impact are discussed.
