One of the most common sleep disorders in the present world is Sleep apnea, which is a condition in which a person stops breathing while in sleep for 10 seconds up to a minute. This happens due to the blockage in the upper airway in the throat muscles. Polysomnography has been the gold standard for the detection of sleep apnea, where a person needs to visit a sleep clinic and sleep the whole night under the supervision of a sleep expert. Numerous sensors are attached to the body to capture the readings. Hence the process is very expensive, time taking, and intrusive. The readings include heart rate variability, SpO2, and other physiological data. This research aims to detect sleep apnea at home using smartwatches. The ECG and SpO2 readings have been analyzed using a spectogram. The models used in this study are CNN and hybrid neural network DenseNet121 + CNN for classifying whether a person is suffering from Sleep Apnea or not. The findings of this research can be used to detect sleep apnea at home.
