Software, Physiologic Recording, Somnography
Definition : Physiologic recording software designed for later process of recorded data such as ECG, EEG, and respiratory obtained while sleeping (i.e., somnography). This software is intended to work only with one or a few models of recorders, usually from the same manufacturer. The software may perform a variety of algorithms to facilitate the analysis of measurements performed during somnography recording; it may also be used to send and/or receive patient information from and to hospital information systems. Somnography recording software is mainly intended for processing the data using a recorded data processor or a standard computer (e.g., a personal computer). Dedicated software used to assess data from sleep/awake recording (i.e., using a reduced number of parameters to compare to somnography studies) is also available.
