Abstract

In this paper, we compare and analyze the results from automatic analysis and visual scoring of nocturnal sleep recordings. The validation is based on a sleep recording set of 60 subjects (33 males and 27 females), consisting of three groups: 20 normal control subjects, 20 depressed patients and 20 insomniac patients treated with a benzodiazepine. The inter-expert variability estimated from these 60 recordings (61,949 epochs) indicated an average agreement rate of 87.5% between two experts on the basis of 30-second epochs. The automatic scoring system, compared in the same way with one expert, achieved an average agreement rate of 82.3%, without expert supervision. By adding expert supervision for ambiguous and unknown epochs, detected by computation of an uncertainty index and unknown rejection, the automatic/expert agreement grew from 82.3% to 90%, with supervision over only 20% of the night. Bearing in mind the composition and the size of the test sample, the automated sleep staging system achieved a satisfactory performance level and may be considered a useful alternative to visual sleep stage scoring for large-scale investigations of human sleep.
