Disposable Sleep and Breathing Monitor

The apparatus consists of two parts, 1.) a calibrated flowmeter for measuring breathing and 2.) electrical sensors attached to the mask for measuring biomedical signals such as, but not limted to, oxygen saturation, head position as well as bioelectrical signals. The flow meter unit delivers a stable pre-calibrated airflow signal, which allows for the quantification of ventilation and obviates the need to perform laborious calibration routines prior to each measurement. The electrical sensor unit allows for the measurement of sleep and factors that are known to influence breathing during sleep. Thus, this new breathing monitor provides a cheap and disposable device for quantitative measurements of ventilation and sleep that wil improve the diagnosis and maagement of patients with sleep disordered breathing and respiratory disorders.
