London: Scientists claim to have designed a computer programme which can analyse one`s snoring sound and accurately diagnose the sleeping disorder behind the breathing problems that can reduce one`s lifespan.Sleep apnoea causes patients` upper airway to collapse repeatedly, cutting off airflow. Doctors examine how patients breathe while they sleep for signs of the condition, in which the throat wrongly closes over causing the patient to start and briefly wake.
Dr Neil Stanley, a sleep expert, said: "An accurate device to diagnose sleep apnoea from recordings of snoring would be extremely helpful. Many patients are told about their snoring by their bed partner, but some can go years not even realising there is a problem. This (method) seems to be very accurate for low level sleep apnoea."Bureau Report
