Dr Jonathan Piccini Sr is quoted in an article by Family Practice News about the link between obstructive sleep apnea and atrial fibrillation.

About 18% of U.S. patients with atrial fibrillation also have a diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea, and the confluence of the two appeared linked to increased hospitalizations and further progression of atrial fibrillation, based on a registry of more than 10,000 U.S. atrial fibrillation patients.
