  • FMWC radar for breath detection

The radar is able to track the breathing rate of an adult human from a distance of 1 meter. The experiments have utilized a 50 second recording window to accurately track the breathing rate. The radar utilizes a saw tooth modulation format and a low latency receiver. A breath tracking radar is useful both in medical scenarios, diagnosing disorders such as sleep apnea, and for home use where the user can monitor its health.

  • Power spectral analysis for identifying the onset and termination of obstructive sleep apnoea events in ECG recordings

    The high prevalence of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) requires a simplified, unattended screening device that would be useful for diagnosis at the early stage. This study presents a method for screening individual OSA event based on sleep ECG signal. The overnight ECG recordings were divided into 5-second epochs containing normal (N) breathing and onset (O), maximum (M) & termination (T) of OSA events. Power spectral analysis of ECG epochs was employed to extract features. The area under receiver operating characteristics curve was estimated to determine the discrimination capability of each feature (or power in each frequency bin). The maximum ROC areas for N/O, N/M and N/T were found to be 0.78, 0.81,0.71 in the ranges of powers of 57-65 Hz, 52-72 Hz, 52-66 Hz bands respectively. An heuristic rule was applied to recognize the individual OSA events from spectral features of N,O,M,T epochs. Results show good agreement with the original annotations in an overnight sleep study. These results, therefore, could have considerable potential in ECG based screening and can aid sleep specialist in the assessment of patients with suspected sleep apnoea syndrome.

  • Tracheal Sounds Features Changes in Different Sleep Stages Based on Complex Wavelet Analysis

    Breathing sounds analysis during sleep is an informative method to study the upper airway. Different sleep stages may affect the breathing sound features. In this study, the tracheal breathing sounds were recorded from 5 individuals and the complex Gaussian wavelet of the deceleration phase of about 3000 successive breath cycles were calculated. The segmented portions were divided into 30 seconds episodes and the appropriate sleep stage of each segment were labeled. The results showed that the Mahalanobis distance between the real parts of the complex Gaussian wavelet coefficients and the reference distribution of each stage is changing consistently in different sleep stages.

  • Significance of snoring and other sounds appearing during the night based on the ECG

    Presented study demonstrates that there is a significant difference in sound spectrum between snoring, normal breath and obstructive apneas which is correlated with ECG signal. It is possible to use sound spectrum analysis as a supplementary method to determine the obstruction site for patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) or other disturbances during the night. Correlation between acoustic and ECG analysis might be one of the screening methods allowing early assessment of the severity of various sleep disorders. Several differences have been found between people showing typical snoring symptoms and subjects with some other common sleep syndromes. The acoustic characteristics of snoring sounds and its variability can be fully described using the time domain, by sound intensity and pitch and the frequency domain, using representative formant frequencies, shape and energy ratio measurements. Sounds appearing during the night, in conjunction with ECG monitoring, allow convenient subject assignment to categories described with the level of snoring severity.

  • Frequency analysis of simulated snoring sounds using Burg's estimator [acoustic, flow and pressure analysis]

    The authors present a system for the acquisition and analysis of acoustic, flow and pressure signals which are generated during snoring. Signal acquisition is handled by a commercial A/D converter, while analysis is done by a series of routines written in C and the MATLAB signal processing environment. The system has been evaluated using normal subjects, while ongoing studies are being done on real patients.

  • Unconstrained and non-invasive respiration monitoring for obstructive sleep apnea prevention

    This project demonstrates the usefulness of an unconstrained and completely non-invasive respiration monitoring system. With the system implemented in this project, patients that suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can sleep without any apnea monitoring devices connected to them, and by means of a pressure sensor attached to an air mattress, be under constant monitoring for apneas. This project extends the usefulness of the monitoring system by connecting the monitoring device with an advanced hospital bed. The two devices are communicating to one another through the use of the CANopen communication protocol. This protocol enables automated event based control. Some research has shown that apneas can be prevented, and the problems caused by apneas can be alleviated, by altering the patients sleeping position. With this project's respiration monitoring system, and the communication with the advanced hospital bed, a bed adjustment can be automatically triggered when respiration has been detected to have ceased for more than ten seconds. This project enables a patient suffering from obstructive sleep apnea to rest without any monitoring devices physically attached to their body, and can also alleviate apneas as well as help prevent other side effects caused by suffering from apneas.

  • Recognizing central and obstructive sleep apnea events from normal breathing events in ECG recordings

    Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) causes a pause in airflow with continuing breathing effort. In contrast, central sleep apnea (CSA) event is not accompanied with breathing effort. The aim of this study is to differentiate CSA and OSA events from normal breathing events using wavelet based features of ECG signal over 5 second period. Total 164880 epochs(each of 5-second duration) from normal breathing events, 196 epochs from 116 CSA, 5281 epochs from 2173 OSA and 3073 epochs from 1563 hypopnea events were selected from single lead ECGs (sampling rate=250 Hz). At the first stage of classification, apnea events were classified from normal breathing events and at the second stage, hypopneas were identified from all apnea events and at final stage, CSA and OSA types were recognized at 98.96% accuracy. Results indicate the possibility of recognizing OSA/CSA events based on shorter segments of ECG signals.

  • Time-Varying Analysis of the Heart Rate Variability during Arousals from Sleep.

    The goal of this work was to apply a time-varying spectral approach to study the dynamic changes in heart rate variability (HRV) produced by the arousal from sleep in obese patients with and without obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). We studied 10 subjects, group I without OSA and group II with OSA diagnostic. RR intervals series was obtained from ECG records. HRV spectral indexes (HF & LF component) were computed from a time variant AR model. In general, group II has more variability than group I. Results are in agreement with literature for group I. However, group II results don't show statistical differences. Our preliminary results are comparable to others reported. Therefore, this technique allows characterizing transitory phenomena like cardiovascular response to arousals

  • Analysis of physiological time series using wavelet transforms

    Time-series analysis is the basis for characterization and modeling of an observed system. The aim of this analysis is the prediction of the short-term evolution of a dynamic system and the development of a model that captures features of its long-term behavior. Here, the authors present a a method of time-series analysis that uses wavelet transforms to analyze heart rhythm, chest volume, and blood oxygen saturation data from a patient suffering from sleep apnea.
