The respiratory sleep disorders are a major cardiovascular risk factor. In fact there is enough scientific evidence that supports the association between apnea-hypopnea syndrome (SASH) and cardiovascular disease (hypertension, stroke, heart failure ....The objective of this study is to estimate the effectiveness of the continuous positive pressure airway (CPAP) in patient with chronic heart failure with normal ejection fraction but dyastolic dysfunction and sleep disordered breathing during the sleep.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • number of patients without diastolic dysfunction [ Time Frame: One year ]
    number of patient without diastolic dysfunction defined by any of this parametres: TRI (isovolumetric relaxation time):> 105 ms (> 50 years),> 100 ms (30-50 years). 2. Wave ratio E / A wave <1 and deceleration time> 220 ms (under 50) and E / A <0.5 and deceleration time> 280 ms (50 +). 3. Relationship between systolic and diastolic wave flow following pulmonary vein (S / D): S / D> 1.5 (under 50) and S / D> 2.5 (over 50). A wave velocity of pulmonary venous flow> 35 cm / s. Flow propagation velocity by color M-mode <45 cm / s. E wave peak velocity by DTI of the ring: Em <5 cm / s

  • number of hospital admissions for any cause [ Time Frame: One year ]
