February is Heart Month

According to the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology Foundation, 71% of all patients diagnosed with heart disease have sleep apnea.  50% of Obstructive Sleep Apnea patients have high blood pressure. Therefore, Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome is present in a large number of patients with high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, diabetes, stroke, and irregular heart rhythms.  

If you or your loved one have heart disease and believe you may also have a sleep disorder, consult your physician or contact the Methodist Sleep Disorders Center directly by calling 901-683-0044 to determine your best treatment option.
