Snoring analysis methods.
Summary of "Snoring analysis methods."
Snore is a breathing sound that is originated during sleep, either nocturnal or diurnal. Snoring may be inspiratory, expiratory or it may occupy the whole breathing cycle. It is caused by the vibrations of the different tissues of the upper airway. Many procedures have been used to analyze it, from simple interrogation, to standardized questionnaires, to more sophisticated acoustic methods developed thanks to the advance of biomedical techniques in the last years. The present work describes the current state of the art of snoring analysis procedures.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Rough, noisy breathing during sleep, due to vibration of the uvula and soft palate.
Body of knowledge related to the use of organisms, cells or cell-derived constituents for the purpose of developing products which are technically, scientifically and clinically useful. Alteration of biologic function at the molecular level (i.e., GENETIC ENGINEERING) is a central focus; laboratory methods used include TRANSFECTION and CLONING technologies, sequence and structure analysis algorithms, computer databases, and gene and protein structure function analysis and prediction.
A method of chemical analysis based on the detection of characteristic radionuclides following a nuclear bombardment. It is also known as radioactivity analysis. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
The use of systematic methods of ethical examination, such as CASUISTRY or ETHICAL THEORY, in reasoning about moral problems.
Numerical Analysis, Computer-assisted
Computer-assisted study of methods for obtaining useful quantitative solutions to problems that have been expressed mathematically.
PURPOSE: Snoring patients seeking medical assistance represent a wide range of clinical and sleep study findings from nonsleepy nonapneic snoring to severe obstructive sleep apne...
PURPOSE: Mounting evidence implicate habitual snoring, a prominent symptom of sleep-disordered breathing, as an important risk factor for adverse pregnancy outcomes including preeclampsia and gestatio...
The analysis of snoring sounds has been in focus for the past two decades. Conventional approaches by fast Fourier transformation face various limitations and demonstrate the necessity for alternative...
Previous studies have suggested that self-reported snoring is associated with atherosclerotic vascular diseases. However, the role of self-reported snoring as an independent risk factor for subclinica...
ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Habitual snoring, a prominent symptom of sleep-disordered breathing, is an important indicator for a number of health problems in children. Compared to adults, large epidemiologi...
Snoring is a problem for many people, often disturbing energy level, quality of sleep, and the relationship with a bed partner. Two observational studies that have indicated a relationship...
SUMMARY INTRODUCTION: among various treatments for patients with primary snoring, upper airway resistance syndrome (UARS) and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), the injection snorepl...
Study to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of a new oral enhanced airway device to treat simple snoring.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate effects from a mandibular repositioning appliance on obstructive sleep apneas, symptoms, blood pressure and markers of stress, inflammation and car...
This study is being done to see if treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) with a mandibular advancement device (MAD) shows an increase in the quality of life. Many patients prefer to...
