Nocturnal respiration, the ballistocardiogram, and body movement activity were studied with the static charge-sensitive bed (SCSB) in snorers who represented a wide range of severity of sleep-related upper airway obstruction. The emphasis was to evaluate the performance of the SCSB as a noninvasive tool for assessing nocturnal breathing disturbances. The results show that periodic episodes of obstructive apnea or hypopnea can reliably be monitored with the method. Additional breathing… CONTINUE READING
