dc.description.abstractThis project aims at developing an electrical model of oropharynx of human upper airway and thereby to simulate the snoring signals of both Non-apnoeic snorers and Obstructive sleep apnea patients (OSA). This simulation helps us to understand the influence of frequency in snoring signal, effect of neural muscle activity in snoring signal and effect of negative airway pressure developed during breathing. This study of snoring signal with respect to the model of oropharynx helps us to understand the reason for upper airway collapse. It also provides us a platform to learn what are the effective changes in the area, length, radius of oropharynx during the collapse .It will be a good tool in medical research for further analysis of snorers and helpful to diagnose them relatively easier. This electrical model can be further used to make a hardware model of our upper airway.en_US
