Evaluating OPTISAS, a visual method to analyse sleep apnea syndromes.

Abstract : The sleep apnea syndrome is a real public health problem. Improving its diagnosis using the polysomnography is of huge importance. Optisas was a visual method allowing translating the polysomnographic data into a meaningful image. In a previous paper, it was shown to bring extra information in 62% of cases. Here its capacity for displaying information of the same relevance as the one got using the classical report of the polysomnography is studied. The main result is that this capacity is weak and seems to be present only to identify the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. Moreover this study suggests to improve the standardization of the classical report in the framework of a quality insurance process.
