Abstract

In this study, an effective real-time obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) detection method from frequency analysis of ECG-derived respiratory (EDR) and heart rate variability (HRV) is proposed. Compared to traditional Polysomnography (PSG) which needs several physiological signals measured from patients, the proposed OSA detection method just only use ECG signals to determine the time interval of OSA. In order to be feasible to be implemented in hardware to achieve the real-time detection and portable application, the simplified Lomb Periodogram is utilized to perform the frequency analysis of EDR and HRV in this study. The experimental results of this work indicate that the overall accuracy can be effectively increased with values of Specificity (Sp) of 91%, Sensitivity (Se) of 95.7%, and Accuracy of 93.2% by integrating the EDR and HRV indexes.
