Thank you for your letter and for the reviewers’ comments concerning our manuscript entitled “Quality analysis of smart phone sleep apps in China: Can apps be used to conveniently screen for obstructive sleep apnea at home?” (ID: MIDM-D-19-00187). Those comments are all very valuable and very helpful for revising and improving our paper as well as the important guiding significance to our researchers. We have studied comments carefully and have made correction which we hope meet with approval… Expand


How Do Infant Feeding Apps in China Measure Up? A Content Quality Assessment
App research and development should focus on implementation of a standard framework, which would drive the development of high-quality apps to support healthy infant feeding through cooperation among academics, health professionals, app users, app developers, and government bodies. Expand
Sleep apps: what role do they play in clinical medicine?
To date, no smartphone app for monitoring sleep through movement sensors has been successfully validated against polysomnography, despite the role and validity of actigraphy in sleep medicine having been well established. Expand
Is There a Clinical Role For Smartphone Sleep Apps? Comparison of Sleep Cycle Detection by a Smartphone Application to Polysomnography.
The study shows that the absolute parameters and sleep staging reported by the Sleep Time app (Azumio, Inc.) for iPhones correlate poorly with PSG, and further studies comparing app sleep-wake detection to actigraphy may help elucidate its potential clinical utility. Expand

A smartphone can be used for effectively monitoring snoring and OSA in a controlled laboratory setting and use of this technology in a noisy home environment remains unproven, and further investigation is needed. Expand
Contactless Sleep Apnea Detection on Smartphones
A novel system that monitors the minute chest and abdomen movements caused by breathing on smartphones that works with the phone away from the subject and can simultaneously identify and track the fine-grained breathing movements from multiple subjects and develops algorithms that identify various sleep apnea events from the sonar reflections. Expand
Measuring sleep: accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity of wrist actigraphy compared to polysomnography.
It is concluded that actigraphy is overall a useful and valid means for estimating total sleep time and wakefulness after sleep onset in field and workplace studies, with some limitations in specificity. Expand
Sleep Tracking, Wearable Technology, and Opportunities for Research and Clinical Care.
Diagnostic tools used in sleep medicine clinical practice are reviewed, categories of consumer sleep-tracking technologies currently available are discussed, and advantages and disadvantages of each are explored. Expand
Comparison of Commercial Wrist-Based and Smartphone Accelerometers, Actigraphy, and PSG in a Clinical Cohort of Children and Adolescents.
When compared to PSG, UP was analogous to Actiwatch2 and may have some clinical utility in children with sleep disordered breathing and should be used with caution. Expand
