A novel odds-ratio-product-based approach identifies individual characteristics of sleep disorders

Takeaway

  • A new odds-ratio-product-based approach to evaluating sleep architecture could provide supplementary methods to analyzing sleep disorders.

Why this matters?

  • There is a need for better diagnosis and management of sleep disorders but traditional metrics of sleep architecture are limited; here, the authors describe a new odds-ratio-product-based approach to evaluating sleep architecture.

  • The odds-ratio-product based metrics provided novel associations with several sleep phenotypes that shed light on the underlying mechanisms of sleep disorders, and may provide new supplementary tools for diagnosing, classifying, and managing sleep disorders.
