A novel technique in identifying unspecified sleep apnea has been developed. This technique uses signals typical acquired from a bedside monitor that is found in critical care environments. Those signals are then processed by a sleep analysis algorithm to provide an Apnoea Hypopnea Index (AHI) score. This study is intended to determine whether the prevalence of sleep disordered breathing identification among patients in a Coronary Care Unit (CCU) using this novel approach is significantly different than using routine techniques.
This study will focus on inpatients diagnosed with coronary conditions. Specific eligibility criteria will include:
- Unstable angina
- Acute myocardial infarction
- Congestive heart failure Subjects enrolled in the study will be scored for sleep apnea using a novel approach designed by the sponsor. That score will not be used in the course of treatment. A follow-up call will determine whether the subject was identified for sleep disordered breathing during the hospital stay. A comparison will be done on the number of those identified with and without the use of the sleep scoring device.

Precordial pain at rest, which may precede a MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
A piperazine derivative and PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR that is used to prevent THROMBOSIS in patients with ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME; UNSTABLE ANGINA and MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION, as well as in those undergoing PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY INTERVENTIONS.
ANGINA PECTORIS or angina-like chest pain with a normal coronary arteriogram and positive EXERCISE TEST. The cause of the syndrome is unknown. While its recognition is of clinical importance, its prognosis is excellent. (Braunwald, Heart Disease, 4th ed, p1346; Jablonski Dictionary of Syndromes & Eponymic Diseases, 2d ed). It is different from METABOLIC SYNDROME X, a syndrome characterized by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA, that has increased risk for cardiovascular disease.
A vasodilator used in angina of effort or ischemic heart disease.
2-(2,2-Dicyclohexylethyl)piperidine. Coronary vasodilator used especially for angina of effort. It may cause neuropathy and hepatitis.
