Can autonomic arousals and neural net EEG analysis predict daytime sleepiness and its response to nCPAP in OSA?

Abstract:

The main symptom of OSA is daytime sleepiness due to sleep fragmentation. An automated marker which detects which OSA patients have sleep fragmentation likely to respond to nCPAP would be clinically useful. This study examines how well autonomic ('sub-cortical') arousals, neural network EEG analysis and ASDA arousal scoring predict objective and subjective sleepiness before nCPAP and the improvement in objective and subjective daytime sleepiness with nCPAP in patients with OSA. 41 (36M, SF) p...
