EEG spectral analysis of apnoeic events confirms visual scoring in childhood sleep disordered breathing

Abstract

This study compared electroencephalogram (EEG) spectral analysis with standard visual scoring to assess the validity of clinical classification of arousals at respiratory event termination in children with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). Twenty children (six M/14 F) aged 7–12 years, diagnosed with moderate to severe OSA participated in this study. Overnight… (More)
