The present invention provides for a data acquisition system for EEG and other physiological conditions, preferably wire­less, and method of using such system. The wireless EEG system can be used in a number of applications including both studies and clinical work. These include both clinical and research sleep studies, alertness studies, emergency brain monitoring, and any other tests or studies where a subject’s or patient’s EEG reading is required or helpful. This system includes a number of features, which enhance this system over other systems presently in the marketplace. These fea­tures include but are not limited to the having multiple chan­nels for looking at a number of physiological features of the subject or patient, a built in accelerometer for looking at a subject’s or patient’s body motion, a removable memory for data buffering and storage, capability of operating below 2.0 GHz, which among other things allows for more channels, movement artifact correction including video, pressure sen­sors capable of measuring or determining airflow, tidal vol­ume and ventilation rate, and capability of manual and auto­matic RF sweep.
