The cardiorespiratory study

The cardiorespiratory study allowss to evaluate whether or not a person suffers from respiratory pauses during the time of registration, but at no time evaluates sleep. It consists of sensors placed at nose and mouth and chest and abdominal bands along with a record level of oxygen. If they are not registered respiratory pauses during sleep time of course we can say that that person has a sleep apnea syndrome and in the event that it registered too many can say that yes presents. Given that this method of gravity calculations are not exact, because we can not know whether asleep or not, the problem is presented to people who have intermediate results or in which they suspect of sleep and other diseases making necesssari make a polysomnographic record.

In this study we can see frequent respiratory apneas and snores, significant decreases of oxygen saturation level in the red blood cells and large pulse fluctuations.

In this picture we see in detail respiratory apneas of up to 24.5 seconds, followed by heavy snoring and a significant decrease in the oxygen saturation levels of the red blood cells.
