Right Ventricular Dysfuction In Subject With Obstructive Sleep Apnoea


An analytical design study on the systolic right ventricle (RV) function
was done in Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) patients who underwent
polisomnography procedure and compare it with normal subject. The
assessment of the RV function was performed using the Speckle tracking
echocardiography method. Other RV function parameters such as TAPSE,
Tissue Doppler Imaging (TDI), dan Myocardial Performance Index (MPI)
were also measured.
The results showed RV dysfunction in OSA patients compared with normal
subject, the decrease of RV function was significantly different between
the two groups. Factors that contributed to RV dysfunction in OSA patients
were higher Apnea-Hypopnea Index (AHI) and Nocturnal Oxygen
