The diagnosis and treatment of sleep disordered breathing have come to the forefront of clinical medicine following recognition of the high prevalence and associated morbidity of sleep apnea. The effects on quality of life as well as societal costs have been well documented. The NYU Sleep Research Laboratory has spent the last several years working on the problem of improving the diagnosis of mild sleep disordered breathing which manifests as the upper airway resistance syndrome. Our approach has been to develop a non-invasive technique to detect increased upper airway resistance directly from analysis of the airflow signal. A characteristic intermittent change of the inspiratory flow contour, which is indicative of the occurrence of flow limitation, correlates well with increased airway resistance.
Currently all respiratory events are identified manually and totaled. This is time consuming and subject to variability. The objective of the present project is to improve upon the manual approach by implementing an artificially intelligent system for the identification and quantification of sleep disordered breathing based solely on non-invasive cardiopulmonary signals collected during a routine sleep study. The utility of other reported indices of sleep disordered breathing obtained during a sleep study will be evaluated.
Successful development of an automated system that can identify and classify upper airway resistance events will simplify, standardize and improve the diagnosis of sleep disordered breathing, and greatly facilitate research and clinical work in this area. Using a physiological based determination of disease should allow better assessment of treatment responses in mild disease.

Periods of sleep manifested by changes in EEG activity and certain behavioral correlates; includes Stage 1: sleep onset, drowsy sleep; Stage 2: light sleep; Stages 3 and 4: delta sleep, light sleep, deep sleep, telencephalic sleep.
Simultaneous and continuous monitoring of several parameters during sleep to study normal and abnormal sleep. The study includes monitoring of brain waves, to assess sleep stages, and other physiological variables such as breathing, eye movements, and blood oxygen levels which exhibit a disrupted pattern with sleep disturbances.
Dyssomnias (i.e., insomnias or hypersomnias) associated with dysfunction of internal sleep mechanisms or secondary to a sleep-related medical disorder (e.g., sleep apnea, post-traumatic sleep disorders, etc.). (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)
Movements or behaviors associated with sleep, sleep stages, or partial arousals from sleep that may impair sleep maintenance. Parasomnias are generally divided into four groups: arousal disorders, sleep-wake transition disorders, parasomnias of REM sleep, and nonspecific parasomnias. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p191)
A sleep disorder of central nervous system origin characterized by prolonged nocturnal sleep and periods of daytime drowsiness. Affected individuals experience difficulty with awakening in the morning and may have associated sleep drunkenness, automatic behaviors, and memory disturbances. This condition differs from narcolepsy in that daytime sleep periods are longer, there is no association with CATAPLEXY, and the multiple sleep latency onset test does not record sleep-onset rapid eye movement sleep.
