Objective: The aim of this study is to develop an automated classification algorithm for polysomnography (PSG) recordings to detect non-apneic and non-hypopneic arousals. Our particular focus is on detecting the respiratory effort-related arousals (RERAs) which are very subtle respiratory events that do not meet the criteria for apnea or hypopnea, and are more challenging to detect. Methods: The proposed algorithm is based on a bidirectional long short-term memory (BiLSTM) classifier and 465…

Characterization of obstructive nonapneic respiratory events in moderate sleep apnea syndrome.
In a population of moderate OSAHS, OH represented the dominant type of ONAREs when RERAs should be considered as specific but relatively rare respiratory events, demonstrating some limitations in the AASM Task Force recommendations for definitions of respiratory events.
