Abstract:

A fuzzy inference system FIS was developed to detect obstructive sleep apnea OSA by analyzing the respiratory airflow signal in adults, The parameters analyzed were the normalized area and the standard deviation of consecutive 3-second intervals of baseline adjusted and rectified airflow signal, Fuzzy logic was used to process these parameters to detect apnea and hypopnea when the output values were within a specified range extracted from OSA patient data, The FIS comprised of three major stages of computation fuzzification, fuzzy rule evaluation and defuzzification,
