NEW TECHNIQUES FOR MODELLING, DIAGNOSIS AND COUNTER MEASURES FOR CARDIAC RELATED SLEEP DISORDERED BREATHING LP0454378
Grant number: LP0454378
Around 50% of congestive heart failure sufferers have some form of sleep disordered breathing. However, little has been done so far to simultaneously monitor, analyse and treat the two conditions. Therefore, this project proposes to develop new technology incorporating mathematical models for heart rate variability, considering the links between sleep disordered breathing and cardiovascular disease. This innovation will enable, for the first time, a device capable of accurate and reliable diagnosis of various sleep disorders using only conventional ECG data. Such technology has the potential to produce significant community health benefits, and save several millions of lives worldwide.
