Automated sleep scoring system using labview
MetadataShow full item record
Sleep scoring involves classification of polysomnographic data into the various sleep stages as defined by Retschaffen and Kales. This process is time-consuming and laborious as it involves experts visually scoring the data. During recent years, there has been an increasing focus on automated sleep scoring systems and professional software programs are finding increased use. However, these systems are not relied on for scoring and are often used as a tool that facilitates easy visual scoring. This thesis proposes a neural network based approach to automatic sleep scoring using LabVIEW. Effort has been made to give the sleep expert more control over key parameters such as the frequency bands, and thus come up with scores that are more in agreement with the individual scorer than being a rigid interpretation of the R&K rules. Though this thesis is limited to the development of an offline software program, given the data acquisition facilites in LabVIEW, a complete system from data acquisition to sleep hypnograms is a fair possibility.
