New Tool Can Diagnose Sleep Apnoea While Patient is Awake
Sleep apnoea is a medical condition wherein there is cessation of respiration and reduced breathing during sleep. Recently, Australian researchers have claimed that they can diagnose obstructive sleep apnoea while the patient is awake. Researchers at Curtin University have created a computer simulation program to analyze breathing airflow in the throat. The program creates a 3D model of a patient’s throat. According to researchers, this study suggests that OSA or obstructive sleep apnoea could be identified, even when the individual concerned is awake and breathing normally.
