Breath sounds from BresoDX in 29 patients were analyzed to distinguish central from obstructive apneas and hypopneas. Compared to PSG, 92% of central and obstructive events were classified correctly. This study demonstrates the ability of breath sound analysis to accurately distinguish central from obstructive events.
