Study objectives: Conventional sleep scoring is based on the scoring criteria of the American Association of Sleep Medicine (AASM) but may not be suited to describe sleep in critically ill children admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). In this study, an anomaly detection model using Gaussian Models trained on sleep stages in data...

Introduction: Critically ill children admitted to the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) have a high risk of disruption of their normal sleep rhythm, which is associated with disturbances in physiology and negative effects on psychological and cognitive functioning. There is a need for real-time, automatic sleep monitoring to minimise...

Background: The hormone cortisol plays important roles in human circadian and stress physiology and is an interesting target for interventions. Cortisol varies not only in response to stress but also as part of a diurnal rhythm. It shows a particularly sharp increase immediately after awakening, the cortisol awakening response (CAR). Cortisol...

Music as a low-cost sleep aid is a promising way to improve the sleep quality of people. However, most available sleep music playlists are limited to generic, soothing songs, which do not take in account personalisation. In collaboration with the Neurology Department of the Reinier de Graaf hospital (Delft, The Netherlands), we explored a...

This research aims to develop a contactless, radar-based sleep apnea detection method. A novel identification approach for this is proposed, based on the envelope of UWB radar spectrograms and machine learning. The envelope of the spectrogram is extracted by an image-based method, followed by signal smoothing via variational mode decomposition ...

The number of people working night shifts has been steadily increasing over the past 20 years. Although shift workers have known this for a long time already from first-hand experience, the Dutch national institute for public health and the environment has recently published advice to minimize night (shift) work, as it is detrimental to the...

Study objectives: Unobtrusive monitoring of sleep and sleep disorders in children presents challenges. We investigated the possibility of using Ultra-Wide band (UWB) radar to measure sleep in children. Methods: Thirty-two children scheduled to undergo a clinical polysomnography participated; their ages ranged from 2 months to 14 years. During...

Recently in the Netherlands, researchers have found that sleep duration and quality were suboptimal in the hospital. Evidence proved that many modifiable hospitalrelated factors negatively associate with patients' sleep (JAMA Internal Medicine, 2018). The sound factor is the most significant sleep disturbance in the hospital. In this graduation...

Sleep is a vital restoration mechanism for our health and well-being. Deficiency in sleep can cause physical and mental health problems and reduced quality of life. How well we sleep is closely related to our behavior, and day to day stress can immensely influence sleep quality. Sound and music, on the other hand, is a powerful way to influence...

Sleeping in long haul flights is difficult. There is noise, an upright sitting position and neighbors and crew disturb the sleep. However, there is not much information available for designers on the most important factors next to the seat that could improve the sleep quality. In this paper a co-creation session and a survey among 109...

Sleep is a natural state of our mind and body during which our muscles heal and our memories are consolidated. It is such a habitual phenomenon that we have been viewing it as another ordinary task in our day-to-day life. However, owing to the current fast-paced, technology-driven generation, we are letting ourselves be sleep-deprived, giving...
