Abstract

Sleep apnea is a syndrome defined as the pause of breathing for more than 10 seconds while the patient remains asleep. Diseases such as strokes, coronary heart attacks or diabetes could be associated with an untreated sleep apnea. UWB is an alternative technology to help treat this condition. It is a non-invasive technology, with low power and low radiation. In this article we present a system based on UWB signals to detect sleep apnea. It is shown that the proposed algorithm correctly detects apnea. Once this is done, an experimental optimization is performed to find the parameters that produce the best results.
