Elapsed time to restore heart rhythm
Dr. Bravri's statement that if the patient does have sleep apnea (SA), his heart rhythm abnormalities would certainly disappear after resolution of his SA omits something very important, ie, how long after resolution of the SA will the heart rhythm abnormality disappear. One night, one week, one month, one year? If cardiac remodeling is involved, it could take many months.
