Diagnosis of sleep apnea by automatic analysis of nasal pressure and forced oscillation impedance.

Abstract

Detecting and differentiating central and obstructive respiratory events is an important aspect of the diagnosis of sleep-related breathing disorders with respect to the choice of an appropriate treatment. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the performance of a new algorithm for automated detection and classification of apneas and hypopneas, compared… (More)
