Paper Abstract

This paper proposes non-invasive solution to the problem of sleep apnea diagnosis especially in small children when sudden death syndrome is suspected. Plethysmographic wave analysis and digital signal processing algorithms are applied in order to find the effect invoked by respiratory movements of sleeping patients so as to diagnose the sleep apnea syndrome. The practical results of finding solution to problems mentioned above will be the possibility of algorithms implementation in a portable intelligent measurement system with a non-invasive monitoring of respiratory action. It works without any disturbances of sleep and respiratory movements especially in small children what could make possible in the future when continuous monitoring were applied to prevent sudden death syndrome occurrence.
