Association of night sleep quality with episodes of atrial fibrillation

It appears that night sleep has a heavy causative impact on arrhythmias.

Atrial fibrillation is a type of arrhythmia, which is quite common in the elderly. It may cause a stroke if remained undetected. Several studies confirm that optimization of arterial blood pressure, good nutrition and abstinence from alcohol abuse may reduce the incidence of atrial fibrillation.

In a recent study, it appears that a night of suboptimal sleep quality increases the likelihood of prolonged episodes of atrial fibrillation the subsequent day.

It is therefore very important to take all necessary measures to ensure good and unobstructed night sleep in order to reduce arrhythmias.
