Other examples include the sleep EEG activity during hypopnoea episodes [6], the Early Detection and Classification of Dementia [7], and many other EEG signal applications [8-12].
Nocturnal oximetry for the diagnosis of the sleep apnoea hypopnoea syndrome: a method to reduce the number of polysomnographies?
People who are affected by sleep apnoea experience obstruction and repeated collapse of the upper airway during sleep, resulting in reduced airflow (Hypopnoea) or complete cessation of airway (Apnoea), arousals from sleep and oxygen desaturation.
Studies have shown that even with a 10% weight reduction, a change of the apnoea and hypopnoea index would decrease by 26% (Cowan & Livingston, 2012).
We performed a literature search using Medline, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, and Scopus for articles published between January 2010 and April 2017 using the following terms: OSA or OSAHS (obstructive sleep apnea hypopnea syndrome), hypopnea or hypopnoea, obstructive sleep apnea or sleep apnea syndrome and sensitivity, specificity, validity, or validation, sleep apnea questionnaires, and screening sleep apnea.
The default settings of the monitoring device were used for the definitions of apnoea, hypopnoea, and desaturation: apnoea was defined as a [greater than or equal to] 80% decrease in airflow for [greater than or equal to] 10 seconds; hypopnoea was defined as a decrease in airflow by 50-80% versus baseline for [greater than or equal to] 10 seconds followed by a [greater than or equal to] 4% decrease in oxygen saturation.

Hypopnoea is a partial blockage of the airway that results in an airflow reduction of greater than 50% for 10 seconds or more.
Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a disease featured by hypopnoea and/or apnoea during sleep that is commonly brought about by airway arousals and obstruction [1].
Sleep efficiency, sleep latency, distribution of sleep stages, Apnoea Hypopnoea Index (AHI), AHI during the rapid eye movement (REM) stage, AHI during the non-REM stage, minimal oxygen saturation, duration of the oxygen saturation lower than 90%, number and index of the leg movement, number and index of the periodical leg movement and, number and index of the leg movement which led to arousal were recorded.
The apnoea/ hypopnoea index (AHI) acquired by manual SC analysis correlated closely with that obtained by PSG (r = 0.98).18
