Sleep has to serve an important function to restore and recreate physical and mental performance. Current lifestyle attracts more attention towards sleep disorder. Hence sleep disorder is the subject of interest. This is now a common diagnostic process for health worldwide. The Polysomnography analyzer uses data mining technique to analyze patient blood oxygen level. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) sleep disorder is caused by reduction of oxygen level in blood. The Polysomnogram recording is an 6 to 8 hrs sleep study. 100 polysomnography recordings of 6 to 8hrs each are used to analyze the results. Work emphasis on use of association rule mining to extract interesting patterns from the Polysomnogram recording.
