Adults with the healthiest sleeping patterns have a 42 per cent lower risk of heart failure than those with unhealthy sleep habits, according to new research.

Heart failure affects more than 26 million people and emerging evidence has indicated that sleep problems may play a role its development, so a study was conducted to test the relationship between heart failure and sleep, with a healthy sleeping pattern featuring attributes such as rising in the morning, sleeping seven to eight hours a day and having no frequent insomnia, snoring, or excessive daytime sleepiness.

Researchers analysed data from 408,802 UK Biobank participants who were aged 37 to 73 when they were recruited between 2006 and 2010. The team collected data on sleep quality and overall sleep patterns, while incidence of heart failure was collected until April 2019.

"The healthy sleep score we created was based on the scoring of... five sleep behaviours," said Lu Qi, corresponding author and professor of epidemiology and director of the Obesity Research Center at Tulane University in New Orleans. "Our findings highlight the importance of improving overall sleep patterns to help prevent heart failure."

After they adjusted for factors such as diabetes, hypertension, and medication use, they found those with the healthiest sleep pattern had a 42 per cent reduction in the risk of heart failure compared to people with an unhealthy sleep pattern.

In addition, they discovered the risk of heart failure was eight per cent lower in early risers; 12 per cent lower in those who slept seven to eight hours a day, 17 per cent lower in those who did not have frequent insomnia; and 34 per cent lower in those who didn't experience daytime sleepiness.

The findings were published on Monday in the American Heart Association's flagship journal Circulation.
