BACKGROUND: We aimed to determine if timing of polysomnography (PSG) influences the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) or stable coronary artery disease (CAD).
METHODS: A total of 160 patients admitted with AMI or stable CAD were consecutively recruited for either in-hospital (n=80) or postdischarge (n=80) PSG.
RESULTS: The median time from admission to PSG for the in-hospital and postdischarge groups was 1day and 17days, respectively (P<.001). Overall, 59 patients (36.9%) were diagnosed with OSA (apnea-hypopnea index [AHI] ⩾15), and they were more likely to have diabetes mellitus (DM), hypertension, hyperlipidemia, chronic renal failure, and a greater body mass index (BMI) (P<.05 for all). The diagnosis of OSA was significantly higher (P=.037) in patients who had a PSG performed as an inpatient than those who had a PSG as an outpatient. There was a significant interaction between clinical presentation and the effect of PSG timing on the diagnosis of OSA (P=.003). For the patients presenting with AMI but not those with stable CAD, in-hospital PSG was an independent predictor of OSA (adjusted odds ratio, 3.84 [95% confidence interval, 1.42-10.41]; P=.008).
CONCLUSION: The timing of PSG influenced the diagnosis of OSA in patients who presented with AMI but not in those who presented with stable CAD.
