Example text

Based on a power spectrum of each EEG segment, a power distribution function reaches 30%, 50% and 70% of total power are measured. These frequencies are no longer fixed to arbitrary frequency bands. If the three frequency values are close together, a narrow peak in the original power spectrum at the corresponding frequency is found. Great differences in frequency values reflect more even distribution of power. A classification based on Loomis [10] was developed by statistical analysis of the four-dimensional parameter space.

A system designed to diagnose SRBD must be able to recognize all disorders of respiration and in addition should record the effects of SRBD on the autonomic nervous system and on sleep. The following parameters for diagnosing SRBD were therefore chosen. Nasal Air Flow Nasal airflow is measured by a thermocouple element. In order to eliminate the effects of differences in airflow between the two nostrils, the airflow is measured at both nostrils. Respiratory Effort Inductive Plethysmography. Thoracic and abdominal respiratory movements are recorded on two separate channels by inductive plethysmography, allowing desynchronizations between thoracic and abdominal respiration to be recognized.

System specifications depend on the criteria placed on the system performance. Here the system requirement is that of reproducing the original signal on a polygraph, using a digital to analog converter, with a quality equal to that which would be obtained if the signals were directly recorded on the polygraph. Analog signals are usually described by their bandwidth and dynamic range, the equivalent specifications for digital being sampling rate and number of bits per sample. One byte (8 bits) can represent 256 different values, so if the values are equally spaced one byte can represent a signal which varies ± 128mV with samples spaced 1 mV apart (1 mV resolution), and it can represent a signal varying between ± 256mV with samples spaced 2 mV apart.
