Title (EN) AUTOMATIC ULTRASOUND TITRATION OF CONTINUOUS POSITIVE AIRWAY PRESSURE (CPAP) TREATMENT FOR SLEEP APNEA
(FR) TITRAGE ULTRASONORE AUTOMATIQUE DE TRAITEMENT DE VENTILATION SPONTANÉE EN PRESSION POSITIVE CONTINUE (CPAP) POUR L’APNÉE DU SOMMEIL
Abstract:
(EN) Techniques for automated titration of CPAP device for a subject include receiving multiple ultrasound images representing a cross section of an airway in a neck of the subject at corresponding different times. Multiple different positive pressure values imposed by a device on the airway of the subject are also received at each of the corresponding times. For each of the ultrasound images, a mask of pixels associated with an air-tissue interface is automatically formed, and a value of a statistic of pixels within the mask is automatically determined. A titration pressure for a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device is automatically determined based on the positive pressures and the value of the statistic for each of the ultrasound images. Output data that indicates the titration pressure for the CPAP device is presented on a display device, such as by operating the CPAP device itself at the titration pressure.
(FR) L'invention concerne des techniques pour le titrage automatisé de dispositif CPAP pour un sujet, qui consistent à recevoir de multiples images échographiques représentant une section transversale de voies aériennes dans un cou du sujet à différents moments correspondants. De multiples valeurs de pression positive différentes imposées par un dispositif sur les voies aériennes du sujet sont également reçues à chaque moment correspondant. Pour chacune des images échographiques, un masque de pixels associés à une interface air-tissu est formé automatiquement, et une valeur d'une statistique de pixels dans le masque est déterminée automatiquement. Une pression de titrage pour un dispositif CPAP est déterminée automatiquement sur la base des pressions positives et de la valeur de la statistique pour chacune des images échographiques. Des données de sortie qui indiquent la pression de titrage pour le dispositif CPAP sont présentées sur un dispositif d'affichage, par exemple en actionnant le dispositif CPAP lui-même à la pression de titrage.
