It is hypothesized that obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can be detected from a short-time, daytime recording of the nasal airway pressure, resulting in a screening tool to identify adult patients at risk for OSA. A nonlinear and nonstationary signal analysis technique based on the Hilbert-Huang transform was used to extract signals intrinsic to OSA, using the first two intrinsic mode functions from the empirical mode decomposition. The Hilbert spectrum was centered around 1.5Hz for normal… CONTINUE READING
