Ballet dancers are competitive athletes who undergo extreme physical and mental stress and work according to an irregular schedule, with long days of training, rehearsal, and performance. Their most significant potential risks entail physical injury and altered sleep. The elaborate training requirements for ballet dancers do not allow regular(More)
Sleep recording is the quantitative method used in sleep centers in order to assess sleep disorders and to quantify pathological events occurring during sleep. Cardiorespiratory polysomnography is the method used for sleep recording. Standards for sleep recording stem back to 1968 and were compiled by Rechtschaffen and Kales with specifications for(More)
This study is aimed at assessing the usefulness of different feature selection and classification methodologies in the context of sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (SAHS) detection. Feature extraction, selection and classification stages were applied to analyze blood oxygen saturation (SaO2) recordings in order to simplify polysomnography (PSG), the gold(More)
The autonomic nervous system (ANS) is modulated by sleep and wakefulness. Noninvasive assessment of cardiac ANS with heart rate variability (HRV) analysis is a window for monitoring malfunctioning of cardiovascular autonomic modulation due to sleep deprivation. This study represents the first investigation of dynamic ANS effects and of electrophysiological(More)
INTRODUCTION Noise is one of the factors that can seriously disturb sleep, and sound volume is an important factor in this context. One strategy involves avoiding exposure to sounds in the night, while entail the minimization of background noise in a bedroom. The goal of this study was to investigate the effect of systematic sound attenuation on nocturnal(More)
The cardiac component of cardio-respiratory polysomnography is covered by ECG and heart rate recordings. However, their evaluation is often underrepresented in summarizing reports. As complements to EEG, EOG, and EMG, these signals provide diagnostic information for autonomic nervous activity during sleep. This review presents major methodological(More)
PURPOSE The present study compared the effects of mandibular advancement therapy (MAD) with continuous positive airway pressure therapy (CPAP) on daytime cardiac autonomic modulation in a wide range of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients under controlled conditions in a randomized, two-period crossover trial. METHODS Forty OSA patients underwent(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim was to evaluate the inter-rater reliability in scoring sleep stages in two sleep labs in Berlin Germany and Beijing China. METHODS The subjects consist of polysomnography (PSGs) from 15 subjects in a German sleep laboratory, with 7 mild to moderate sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome (SAHS) patients and 8 healthy controls, and PSGs from 15(More)
Sleep disordered breathing does show different types of events. These are obstructive apnea events, central apnea events and mixed sleep apnea (MSA) which have a central component with a pause in airflow without respiratory effort followed by an obstructive component with respiratory effort. The esophageal pressure (Pes) is the accurate method to assess(More)
