    Am J Cardiol 111:547-51. 2013
    ..Our data showed a modestly elevated risk of AF with long sleep duration among United States male physicians. Furthermore, a shorter sleep duration was associated with a greater risk of AF in those with prevalent sleep apnea...

    Am J Cardiol 110:326-30. 2012
    ..In conclusion, our data suggest that even in subjects at higher risk for HF because of genetic predisposition, adherence to healthful lifestyle factors may attenuate such an elevated HF risk...
