Sleep bruxism (SBx) activity is classically identified by capturing masseter and/or temporalis masticatory muscles electromyographic activity (EMG-MMA) during in-laboratory polysomnography (PSG). We aimed to identify stereotypical mandibular jaw movements (MJM) in patients with SBx and to develop rhythmic masticatory muscles activities (RMMA) automatic detection using an artificial intelligence (AI) based approach.
This was a prospective, observational study of 67 suspected obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients in whom PSG with masseter EMG was performed with simultaneous MJM recording
SBx can be reliably identified, quantified, and characterized with MJM when subjected to automated analysis supported by AI technology
A few words about the journal
Nature and science of sleep is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal covering all aspects of sleep science and sleep medicine, including the neurophysiology and functions of sleep, the genetics of sleep, sleep and society, biological rhythms, dreaming, sleep disorders and therapy, and strategies to optimize healthy sleep.
