Rationale: Inspiratory flow limitation (IFL), characterized by flattening of individual breaths on the airflow/time tracing, is a non-invasive indicator of elevated upper airway resistance. An IFL "event" in isolation has not been defined, nor has the ability to reproducibly identify event occurrence been tested. IFL events and their association with immediate physiological responses, as well as the impact of characteristics such as age, sex, sleep stage, sleepiness and event duration on their association with such outcomes also has not been studied.

Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) comprising obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is found in more than half of patients with heart failure (HF) and may have negative impacts on cardiovascular function. Increased atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and the development of coronary events and congestive heart failure are associated with OSA. It is associated with a substandard quality of life, increased hospitalizations, and a poor prognosis. Read More
