dc.description.abstract Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a highly prevalent disease characterized by recurrent episodes of upper airway obstruction that result in recurrent arousals and episodic oxyhemoglobin desaturations during sleep. When the obstructive sleep apnea happens to the patient, the air cannot flow normally into the lung and may cause to stop the breathing for short periods of time. The block in airflow is usually caused by the collapsed of soft tissues in the tongue and in the back on the throat (upper airflow). These pauses in airflow can occur off and on during sleep that can causes many serious problems if not treated probably. Several research demonstrate that patients with obstructive sleep apnea have complex metabolic abnormalities and manifest with a time, like high blood pressure, periods of stopping breathing especially in the sleeping, heart disease, stroke or early death. There are many clues and symptoms that can be noticed on the patient, and can be as an introduction for obstructive sleep apnea like a Loud snoring , Excessive daytime sleepiness, Observed episodes of stopped breathing during sleep, Abrupt awakenings accompanied by gasping or choking, High blood pressure, Nighttime sweating. By monitoring some of important physiological parameters of the patient, like a heart rate, airflow and the movement of the patient’s chest, obstructive sleep apnea syndrome can be early detected and treated. The idea of this project is to design a device that has the ability to deal with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome cases. Obstructive sleep apnea is a common problem that effects on the breathing’s of the patient during a sleep. Two parameters (Respiratory rate and the movement of the chest) can be measure using a device that compare it with a reference values in the arduino, and if the reading of parameters are abnormal, the device will active a buzzer with a red light to be signs of emergency case, and then activate an efficient recovery system like CPAP that can deal with the case, at the same time, the Arduino microcontroller will send the data via Bluetooth to the doctor of the patient or any related person. en_US
