The patients frequently suffer from physical and mental symptoms such as anxiety and dyspnea, which seriously affect the quality of sleep and lead to sleep disorders. Studies have find that sleep disorder is one of the main symptoms of chronic heart failure, the incidence of which is as high as 70%[3], and the quality of sleep will affect the prognosis of patients with [4-5].
