    […] due to cardiovascular disease and about 15% of all deaths globally. [10] About 80% of sudden cardiac death is the result of ventricular arrhythmias. [10] Arrhythmias may[en.wikipedia.org] Abnormalities in cardiac ion channel function or in their associated regulatory proteins may lead to arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death (SCD).[doi.org] Hemodynamic and echocardiographic variables are generally not useful in identifying patients at high risk for sudden cardiac death, and the results of ambulatory ECG monitoring[doi.org]

  • Heart Failure

  • Sleep Apnea

    The resulting tendency toward cardiac arrhythmia may directly contribute to sudden cardiac death and premature mortality in patients with sleep apnea.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vasovagal Syncope
