A recent study of 88 Heart Failure patients, 56 of whom had CSA and 32 of whom did not for 51 months, found that median survival of patients with CSA was 45 months compared with 90 months for those without CSA. The results suggest that Heart failure patients who also have CSA face a similar risk and may live only half as long as Heart failure patients without CSA.
