*Better way to evaluate sleep disorders*

A “groundbreaking approach” approach to determine sleep quality using the innovation of “breath-sound analysis” (BSA) has been developed by Ben-Gurion University of the Negev researchers.

They say the technique less expensive and invasive than current polysomnography (PSG) technology. Their study was published recently in PLOS One Online.

“One of the main goals of sleep medicine today is to improve early diagnosis and treatment of the ‘flood’ of subjects presenting with sleep disorders,” said Prof. Yaniv Zigel, head of the biomedical signal processing research lab in BGU’s biomedical engineering department.
