Narcolepsy is a lifelong disorder of hypersomnolence that is associated with a high degree of disability and comorbidity. For example, patients with narcolepsy have a higher incidence of stroke, cardiovascular disease, atrial fibrillation, major adverse cardiac event, heart failure, and myocardial infarction, complicating treatment decisions. Several therapies for narcolepsy carry cardiovascular-related warnings, making treatment planning a challenge. To develop safe, effective treatment regimens for patients with narcolepsy, an understanding of the comorbidities and risk factors associated with narcolepsy is essential to optimize clinical outcomes.
This CME Outfitters Snack features expert faculty discussing the latest clinical evidence on the cardiovascular burden of narcolepsy and the need to consider cardiovascular comorbidities and other risk factors to inform treatment planning for patients with narcolepsy.
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
- Personalize treatment selection for patients with narcolepsy with or at-risk for cardiovascular comorbidities.
Supported by an educational grant from Jazz Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
