Sleep Evaluation for Post-Stroke Patients

Sleep Evaluation for Post-Stroke Patients

Sleep Evaluation for Post-Stroke Patients

Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) is highly prevalent but frequently unrecognized among stroke patients. Polysomnography (PSG) is challenging to perform soon after a stroke, taking weeks or months to complete. The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association guidelines recommend considering sleep studies in acute stroke and transient ischemic attack patients.

Recently, Belun® Sleep Platform recently has helped a young male post-stroke patient with heart failure to identify Cheyne-Stokes respiration during sleep test at home.  

Belun preventive healthcare platform namely, FDA-cleared Belun® Ring as the key, combined with Belun® Core & Belun® Sleep Platform. The platform collects and analyzes the overnight continual physiological parameters for long-period study. 

Physiological parameters:

  • Belun® Ring: SpO2, pulse rate, pulse rate variability and movement detection
  • Belun® Core: breathing effort, posture and body temperature
  • Belun® Sleep Platform: machine learning algorithm for obstructive sleep apnea (bAHI), sleep stage (wake, NREM, REM) and central sleep apnea

Applications / Studies for:

  • Post-stroke patient recovery
  • Congestive heart failure
Cheyne stoke respiration of heart failure patient
