Analysis Shows Predictive Capabilities of Sleep EEG
Overnight sleep electroencephalography (EEG) contains an abundance of brain wave data that could be mined to identify an individual's risk for a host of health outcomes, including dementia, cognitive impairment, and cardiovascular events. The results suggest that it's feasible to use sleep to identify people with high risk of unfavorable outcomes and it strengthens the concept of sleep as a window into brain and general health
@dennis-james The researchers performed a quantitative analysis of sleep data collected on 8,673 adults who had diagnostic sleep studies that included polysomnography (PSG). The analysis used ICD codes to consider these 11 health outcomes: dementia, mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or dementia, ischemic stroke, intracranial hemorrhage, atrial fibrillation, myocardial infarction, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, bipolar disorder, depression, and mortality.
