Abstract

We report a case of severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in a patient with symptomatic daytime cardiac bradyarrhythmia. Continuous positive airway pressure therapy prevented atrioventricular blocks that emerged after cardiac pacing for sick sinus syndrome. OSA could be associated with daytime bradyarrhythmia.
