Hi, Thank you for your every great contribution!
I would like to use STAGES dataset, especially hypnogram labels, which are recorded as .csv files (for example, stages/files/original/STAGES PSGs/ STNF/STNF00001.csv).
My question is whether those .csv files were scored by sleep experts or the results from the automatic scoring algorithm.
I also tried to find some information about it, but I couldn't find any clear description.
Can you help me with this issue?
Thanks for checking out the site. The records were scored by trained sleep clinic staff members. Someone emailed with a similar question recently. Here's my response:
Thanks for using the site. Yes, the STAGES PSGs were manually scored. The CSV annotation files include sleep staging.
The MOP (https://sleepdata.org/datasets/stages/files/documentation/STAGES%20MOP%202018-08-09.pdf) contains this bit:
The PSGs were conducted using each site’s clinic protocols, and I assume likewise for the subsequent scoring. We didn’t receive detailed information about the sleep centers or scoring staff, but my presumption is that all the sleep centers were AASM-accredited.
