I have lone arrhythmia - I take amiodarone and wafarin and have had a number of cardioversions which have been successful for decreasing periods - last one lasted 3 mths.
I believe my mild sleep apnoea is the trigger as I have always reverted to AF at night and wake up in doing so. I am undergoing CPAP treatment for the apnoea.
Should I continue with both treatments in the hope that cure for the apnoea will eventually sustain the CV ?
I believe the alternative is to accept managed AF and continue with Warfarin and an alternative control drug to amiodarone. With a continuously fibrillating atria and the node selecting beats is my life expectancy likely to be shortened by some form of heart failure ?
