Automatic apnea-hypopnea events detection using an alternative sensor

Abstract

According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) 2007 scoring manual, the sum of dual respiratory inductive plethysmography signals, RIP-sum, can be used as an alternative signal instead of airflow signal to detect sleep apnea events. In this study, a new method is proposed to detect apnea-hypopnea events using the RIP-sum signal. An event-based… (More)
