Abstract

Sleep medicine is a growing field with multidisciplinary origins in physiological monitoring techniques, on which it still largely depends. Collaborations between engineers and sleep specialists offer substantial opportunities to improve on current approaches to diagnosis and assessment of patients with sleep problems. Such collaborations could also prove key to improved fundamental understanding of the pathophysiology that underlies sleep disorders and their adverse impact on the brain, cardiovascular system, and optimal health. © 2011 International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering.
