Abstract

In this paper, we propose a strategy that combines Genetic Algorithm (GA) and HMM to improve the recognition rate of sleep staging. The GA is used to train a better codebook for HMM. With this method, the accuracy and efficiency of sleep medical diagnosis can be expected to be improved. Moreover, some features used in other research are selected as supporting features. These features are used to train the HMM model and then fed into the trained HMM for recognition. Unlike the existing research on sleep staging by HMM, in which the modeling of HMM is independent of the special properties of the sleep stage transition, the HMM in this study is adjusted to meet these properties. The experimental results show that the proposed method greatly enhances the recognition rate compared with other existing research.
