New research: Assessment of MJM against Esophageal Pressure

20 April 2022

The study by Jean Louis Pépin et al. published in Nature and Science of Sleep assessed whether the mandibular jaw movements (MJM) captured by Sunrise is a reliable surrogate of esophageal pressure (PES) in patients with suspected OSA.

Key findings

A total of 8,042 signal sequences were extracted from the PES and MM recordings from 38 patients.

This study demonstrated the high reliability of mandibular movement as a surrogate of the gold-standard esophageal pressure signal for measuring respiratory effort associated with obstructive, central or mixed apneas and/or hypopneas during sleep.
