Recurrent acute pulmonary oedema associated with obstructive sleep apnoea



Recurrent acute pulmonary oedema associated with obstructive sleep apnoea



Singapore Medical Journal 35(4): 411-413



A patient had recurrent acute nocturnal pulmonary oedema following an anterior myocardial infarction despite a normal maximal stress electrocardiogram. He had a history of chronic heavy snoring and other symptoms to suggest a diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) which was supported by an overnight sleep study. The recurrent acute pulmonary oedema was most likely due to a combination of poor left ventricular function and obstructive sleep apnoea.
