Validation of the "ApneaScan" Algorithm for the Detection of Sleep Disordered Breathing in Chronic Heart Failure (VASA)

Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:3rd Nov 2013
A prospective observational multi-centre study for the validation of the ApneaScan algorithm (integrated in ICD devices (with or without cardiac resynchronization therapy function) of the "Incepta" series for the screening of sleep disordered breathing in patients with stable symptomatic chronic heart failure, using portable polygraphy monitoring device ("Embletta Gold") as reference for the Apnea-Hypopnea-Index (AHI). Secondary objectives are the detection of severe sleep disordered breathing in patients with clinically indicated in-laboratory polysomnography, as well as correlations of the AHI detected by ApneaScan with other clinical endpoints like mortality, hospitalization, atrial fibrillation and ventricular arrhythmia.
