Pharyngeal wall vibration detection using an artificial neural network

Abstract

An artificial-neural-network-based detector of pharyngeal wall vibration (PWV) is presented. PWV signals the imminent occurrence of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) in adults who suffer from OSA syndrome. Automated detection of PWV is very important in enhancing continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy by allowing automatic adjustment of the applied… (More)
