Abstract: Sleeping positions have a significant impact on exposure of apnea patients to sleep apnea. In this study, the sleeping position of the patient was read with the STM microcontroller by using the body position sensor (SleepSense 1/8" Plug DC Body Position Sensor Kit) produced by the sleep sense company. This sensor produces results with analog signals between 0-2V. This analog signal was read using the ADC feature of the microcontroller. This signal read by the microcontroller was sent to the computer via the USB port. The C# software prepared on the computer reads the data from the microcontroller and saves this data and the arrival time of the data to the bit TXT file. The data in this TXT file is ready to be evaluated by signal processing methods. These data, together with other data obtained from the polysomnography device, can be used to learn the body position of the patient at the time of apnea.
