[The application of micro-sensitive mattress type sleep monitor in the diagnosis of OSAHS in children].

[Article in Chinese]



To investigate the result of child-type micro-sensitive mattress sleep monitor on obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome in children.


The PSG and child-type micro-sensitive mattress sleep monitor were synchronously performed on 58 cases of children with OSAHS. The breathing and sleep metrics were compared.


By PSG monitoring, 41 cases were diagnosed as mild OSAHS, 14 cases were moderate and 3 cases were severe. The results of mattress system monitoring showed mild OSAHS in 37 cases, 16 cases of moderate and severe OSAHS in 5 cases. Seven patients diagnosed as mild OSAHS monitored by PSG were classified as moderate by mattress system monitoring; three cases diagnosed as mild OSAHS by mattress system monitoring system were diagnosed as moderate by PSG. Among 14 cases of children diagnosed as moderate by PSG, three cases were diagnosed as mild by mattress system monitor and two cases as severe. Children diagnosed as severe by PSG got the same result by mattress system monitor. Two kinds of sleep monitoring methods were compared and there were no statistically significant difference in AHI (t = 2.316, P > 0.05), deep and shallow sleep constituent ratio (t = 2.280, t = 2.388, PF > 0.05). while there was significant difference in REM period Sleep constituent ratio (t = 3.135, P < 0.01).


Child-type micro-sensitive mattress is in good agreement with the PSG for diagnosing OSAHS in children, which can be used as a monitoring method in clinical work.
