To propose a method of automatically classify patients of REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD) based on convolutional neural network (CNN) using cardiopulmonary coupling (CPC) spectrum induced from a single-channel electrocardiogram (ECG).
The classification performance showed sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of 80.0%, 85.7% and 82.3% for RBD, respectively.
The ECG-derived CPC-based method has the potential for automatically classifying RBD patients in a home environment without any other physiological signals.
