Summary

Central sleep apnea occurs when the brain fails to send a signal to the muscles that control breathing during sleep causing brief pauses in breathing. It is widely believed that treatment of central sleep apnea may improve heart failure and quality of life. The goal of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of oxygen treatment in patients with both central sleep apnea and heart failure.
