Materials and Methods: 60 adult patients referred to Post CCU were selected. Patients with respiratory and CNS problem and using of sedative drugs were excluded. All participants including post AMI, CHF and acute coronary syndrome put under the portable device and pulse oximetry. Data were analyzed and compared using SPSS version 18 software. Results: mean age was 61±11, 61.7% were female. There were no relationship between ESS>10 and ESS>16 with AHI>15, but there were significant correlation between ODI >10 with AHI more than 15 and 30. Conclusion: Sleep apnea is very common in cardiovascular cases and early diagnosis and management of OSA can help physician to control sign and symptom and decrease mortality and morbidity of patients.
