This thesis investigates the feasibihty of using the non-invasive biomedical signal of oxygen saturation, or Sp02, to diagnose a sleep disorder known as Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Hypopnoea Syndrome (OSAHS). Epidemiologically, OSAHS is the most common condition investigated by sleep clinics. In a patient suspected of having the disorder, the upper airway is obstructed during sleep and a cessation in respiration results.
