Brief Summary:
This study is intended to compare intrathoracic pressure and respiratory effort data obtained by forehead venous pressure and respiratory movement (FVP/RM) with data obtained by the current gold standard, esophageal manometry. If this feasibility study validates the ability of FVP/RM data to quantitatively measure respiratory effort non-invasively, further studies will be performed to validate the utility of the ARES device in diagnosis of the UARS.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome Other: Patient will wear ARES device while undergoing sleep study Not Applicable
