ARES had a 0.96 correlation with PSG when recorded concurrently and 0.88 for in-home ARES vs. PSG. ARES demonstrated a sensitivity of 97.4 and a specificity of 85.6 in 284 subjects with data acquired concurrently with PSG, and a sensitivity of 91.5 and a specificity of 85.7 in 187 subjects when comparing in-home recordings to PSG. 32 of 35 of the in-home misclassifications were attributed to differences in the percent time supine. Twenty-percent of the subjects included in this study were healthy controls. The failure rate for the in-home comparisons was only 2%
