Abstract

Added Value of a Mandible Movement Automated Analysis in the Screening of Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Is there a Gender Influence?

We previously demonstrated the added value of mandible movement automated analysis (MMAA) to a portable device for the screening of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). In the present study, we aimed at investigating its respective value in the two genders. Several sleep monitoring equipments have been developed for the screening of OSA but few have been assessed in the female population. In a Systematic Review of the literature on portable devices published in 2003, the authors recommend that studies include more diversified populations, among them women.
