Abstract

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a chronic sleep disorder affecting a large number of the global population. Telemonitoring has been successfully evaluated as an alternative method to traditional care. This paper identifies drawbacks of the current telemonitoring approaches and presents a universal wireless system for continuous monitoring of basic respiration parameters. The proposed system monitors four parameters, namely respiratory flow, airway pressure, Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Oxygen (O2) gas concentrations. Data are wirelessly transmitted to a computer which acts as a web server. The system will allow remote evaluation of home ventilation support efficiency and the application of custom algorithms for decision support and respiration event detection.
