Abstract

The present disclosure pertains to a system configured to detect slow wave sleep and/or non-slow wave sleep in a subject during a sleep session based on a predicted onset time of slow wave sleep and/or a predicted end time of slow wave sleep that is determined based on changes in cardiorespiratory parameters of the subject. Cardiorespiratory parameters in a subject typically begin to change before transitions between non-slow wave sleep and slow wave sleep. Predicting this time delay between the changes in the cardiorespiratory parameters and the onset and/or end of slow wave sleep facilitates better (e.g., more sensitive and/or more accurate) determination of slow wave sleep and/or non-slow wave sleep.
