Atypical sleep in ventilated patients

Atypical sleep in ventilated patients: Empirical electroencephalography findings and the path towards revised ICU sleep scoring criteria. Critical care medicine Aug 2013, Vol. 41(8), 1958-67.

Watson, P.L., et al.

We sought to quantify typical and atypical polysomnographic findings in critically ill patients and to begin development and reliability testing of methodology to characterize the atypical polysomnographic tracings that confound standard sleep scoring criteria.
