Artificial Intelligence May Better Detect Sleep Apnea
Machine learning algorithms—also known as artificial intelligence (AI)—can better detect sleep apnea compared with traditional linear approaches, according to a study being presented at the CHEST Annual Meeting 2019.
Oxygen Therapy Is Associated with Poor Patient-Reported Outcomes in COPD and IPF
The need for home oxygen use is associated with worse patient-reported outcomes in those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), according to research being presented at the CHEST Annual Meeting 2019.
