IPHONE SLEEP APP FOR SNORE DETECTION
Hi guys,

My pulmonologist recommended that I use an iPhone sleep app to measure sleep sounds at night. I have attempted to capture this information with and without a remote microphone, but all I record is the air noise of the APAP (ResMed AutoSense 10).

Does anyone have a clue to how this can be accomplished while I am using the APAP? I am thinking of neck-mounted transdermal microphones or spectral filtering of noise using Audigy software.

Sorry ... it is not Audigy software, but Audacity software

Your machine detects and charts snores based on its flow sensors. iTunes has Record your Snoring app. I've never tried any of the iPhone apps because it seems the machine information is sufficient to determine if snores occur and if they correspond to AHI events, or pressure levels.

RE: IPHONE SLEEP APP FOR SNORE DETECTION
I use an iPhone app called SnoreLab. You plug your iPhone to your charger close to you for power all night, aim the bottom of your phone in your bed's general direction, and start the session. There is a free version with paid extras if you want, the free provided enough for me. I used it for a few nights and had to admit my wife's complaints about snoring were right. I scored Epic on it. I then finally go off my duff and am now waiting on a appointment with a sleep Dr.

If your phone can pick up the sound of the machine, it can pick up on the sound of your snoring. Unless you put your phone right on top the machine. Which would be odd. And not a place to put it.

RE: IPHONE SLEEP APP FOR SNORE DETECTION
Apparently there is another app being developed called ApneaApp, whether or not there is any merit to it vs a conventional sleep study is debatable, but it's interesting.

If you are using a CPAP machine, there is no reason to record your snoring. The machine "records" it for you. Then you have the rest of the data to back it up. Such as flow rate.

Recording your snoring is like recording the engine running when the car is vibrating and the RPM gauge is visible.

I've used a voice-activated recorder, placed on my dresser about ten feet from the CPAP. It picks up snoring perfectly. My machine is so quiet that I could probably place the recorder next to it, and it would work equally well.
