Assessment of a Neck-Based Treatment and Monitoring Device for Positional Obstructive Sleep Apnea

The objective of this study was to evaluated the accuracy and efficacy of a neck-worn device designed to limit supine sleep. The study included nightly measurements of snoring, sleep/wake, time supine, and the frequency and duration of feedback to monitor compliance. Thirty patients between ages 18 and 75 years, BMI ≤ 35 with an overall [...]

Capability of a neck worn device to measure sleep/wake, airway position, and differentiate benign snoring from obstructive sleep apnea

Abstract To evaluate the accuracy of a neck-worn device in measuring sleep/wake, detecting supine airway position, and using loud snoring to screen for obstructive sleep apnea. Study A included 20 subjects who wore the neck-device during polysomnography (PSG), with 31 records obtained from diagnostic and split-night studies. Study B included 24 community-based snorers studied in-home [...]

Sleep Profiler Automated Sleep Staging compared to Manual Scoring

Download Full Article The objective of this study was to investigate the accuracy of an automated sleep-staging algorithm that is based on a single bipolar EEG signal. Three raters each manually scored the polysomnographic records from 44 patients referred for sleep evaluation. The mean positive percent agreement across subjects and stages was 72.6%, approximately [...]

Emergent Leadership and Team Engagement: An Application of Neuroscience Technology and Methods

Abstract: Although the topic of employee engagement has gained increasing attention, little is known about engagement in team settings. In the current study, we examined individual engagement, emergent leadership, and team-level engagement in 31 teams of MBA students who attempted to solve a case problem dealing with corporate social responsibility. A feature of this study [...]
