A study in France which involved 68 pacemaker patients with a mean age of 64 years who had not been diagnosed with OSA found that 59% had OSA and that 21% had severe OSA. It was also found that pacemaker patients with OSA were less symptomatic than typical OSA patients. Although it is a known fact that OSA leads to heart arrhythmias it was not revealed whether OSA contributes to heart problems in pacemaker patients.
