Method and apparatus for diagnosing sleep breathing disorders while a patient in awake



Method and apparatus for diagnosing sleep breathing disorders while a patient in awake



Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1271(3), June 17



An apparatus and method for identifying the timing of the onset of and duration of an event characteristic of sleep breathing disorder while a patient is awake. Chaotic processing techniques analyze data concerning a cardio-respiratory function, such as nasal air flow. Excursions of the resulting signal beyond a threshold provide markers for delivering the average repetition rate for such events that is useful in the diagnosis of obstructed sleep apnea and other respiratory dysfunctions.
