The high prevalence (9% in men and 4% in women) of sleep apnea / hypopnea syndrome (SAHS) in adults is now well documented as well as its cardiovascular repercussions. Previous studies showed a conclusive link between SAHS and severe cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension, myocardial infarction, heart failure and stroke.Then, SAHS is a public health issue in adults.
In this context, early detection of such a disease is crucial if the management is tailored to the patient, the practitioner's choice of therapy moving towards continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) or mandibular advancement device. The detection is based on full nocturnal polysomnography or polygraphic recordings. Polysomnography remains the gold standard but it is a time consuming and costly examination. Polygraphic recording is a test that allows simplified the diagnosis of severe patients, but may not be sufficient for mild form of SAHS. Thus, the SAHS is a pathology under-diagnosed and under-treated. The validation of a technique for identifying patients most at risk to either limit the number of polysomnographic examination is requested.
In this perspective, the development of a product screening sleep related breathing disorders for physicians, cardiologists, internists (not specialized sleep experts) would fill this need. It allows for a reliable first screening for their patients in parallel with a routine cardiological examination. Imposing a minimal human and material, the ECG Holter recorder "VistaO2" (NOVACOR, Rueil-Malmaison, France) is a device designed to meet these requirements. This device fits into the daily management of patients with cardiac arrhythmias or sinus/atrioventricular conduction disorders, and of patients suffering myocardial infarction (arrhythmic risk stratification, detection of silent myocardial ischemia).
Analysis of heart rate variability (HRV) has already shown interest in screening SAHS. We therefore wish to evaluate the performance of the analysis of data from the screening tool VistaO2 face what the gold standard synchronized polysomnography.

Disorders characterized by multiple cessations of respirations during sleep that induce partial arousals and interfere with the maintenance of sleep. Sleep apnea syndromes are divided into central (see SLEEP APNEA, CENTRAL), obstructive (see SLEEP APNEA, OBSTRUCTIVE), and mixed central-obstructive types.
A condition associated with multiple episodes of sleep apnea which are distinguished from obstructive sleep apnea (SLEEP APNEA, OBSTRUCTIVE) by the complete cessation of efforts to breathe. This disorder is associated with dysfunction of central nervous system centers that regulate respiration. This condition may be idiopathic (primary) or associated with lower brain stem lesions; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (LUNG DISEASES, OBSTRUCTIVE); HEART FAILURE, CONGESTIVE; medication effect; and other conditions. Sleep maintenance is impaired, resulting in daytime hypersomnolence. Primary central sleep apnea is frequently associated with obstructive sleep apnea. When both forms are present the condition is referred to as mixed sleep apnea (see SLEEP APNEA SYNDROMES). (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p395; Neurol Clin 1996;14(3):611-28)
Dyssomnias (i.e., insomnias or hypersomnias) associated with dysfunction of internal sleep mechanisms or secondary to a sleep-related medical disorder (e.g., sleep apnea, post-traumatic sleep disorders, etc.). (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
A disorder characterized by recurrent apneas during sleep despite persistent respiratory efforts. It is due to upper airway obstruction. The respiratory pauses may induce HYPERCAPNIA or HYPOXIA. Cardiac arrhythmias and elevation of systemic and pulmonary arterial pressures may occur. Frequent partial arousals occur throughout sleep, resulting in relative SLEEP DEPRIVATION and daytime tiredness. Associated conditions include OBESITY; ACROMEGALY; MYXEDEMA; micrognathia; MYOTONIC DYSTROPHY; adenotonsilar dystrophy; and NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p395)
Periods of sleep manifested by changes in EEG activity and certain behavioral correlates; includes Stage 1: sleep onset, drowsy sleep; Stage 2: light sleep; Stages 3 and 4: delta sleep, light sleep, deep sleep, telencephalic sleep.
