A key mission in medical science is diagnosing a disease due to its criticality and accuracy in examining whether a patient is suffering from particular disease or not. Then, the most appropriate side of treatment can be decided. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) syndrome is the most widespread sleep disorder characterized by chronic episodes of reduction in the airflow or stoppage in airflow during sleep, being caused by blockage of upper airway. The intention of this review is to analyze already existing algorithms for detecting apnea all the way through usage of different sensors that have not been implemented on hardware. This study offers an exhaustive literature research value from 2003 to 2019 and setting a roadmap for bio-engineers and medical doctors thereby reducing research period and improving medical service efficiency concerning obstructive sleep apnea diagnosis.
