Influence of sleep-disordered breathing assessed by pulse oximetry on long-term clinical outcomes in patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention

Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) has been recognized as an important risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD). However, SDB was not fully examined, because sleep studies are limited. Nocturnal pulse oximetry has been suggested to be a useful tool for evaluating SDB. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the influence of SDB assessed by nocturnal pulse oximetry on clinical outcomes in patients who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
We conducted a prospective, multicenter, observational cohort study, wherein SDB was assessed by finger pulse oximetry in patients who underwent PCI from January 2014 to December 2016. SDB was defined as 4% oxygen desaturation index of 5 and higher. The primary endpoint was major adverse cardiac or cerebrovascular event (MACCE), defined as a composite of all-cause mortality, acute coronary syndrome, and/or stroke.
Of 539 patients, 296 (54.9%) had SDB. MACCE occurred in 32 patients (5.8%) during a median follow-up of 1.9 years. The cumulative incidence of MACCE was significantly higher in patients with SDB (P = 0.0134). In the stepwise multivariable Cox proportional model, the presence of SDB was a significant predictor of MACCE (hazard ratio 2.26; 95% confidence interval 1.05–5.4, P = 0.036).
SDB determined by nocturnal pulse oximetry was associated with worse clinical outcomes in patients who underwent PCI. Screening for SDB with nocturnal pulse oximetry was considered to be important for risk stratification in patients with CAD.
