Obstructive sleep apnoea

The Oxford Sleep Unit was one of the first in the UK to investigate and treat sleep apnoea and related conditions. Alongside this clinical work the department has been involved in several research areas. Extensive work on the epidemiology and relevance of sleep apnoea in the community and in other disorders, such as diabetes and retinopathy, has been undertaken. New methods for diagnosis and treatment have been introduced. Most recently, the interplay between sleep apnoea and vascular disease has been extensively researched. In development in conjunction with the University of Zurich has been the introduction of a novel protocol to rapidly investigate the pathophysiology of sleep apnoea, and the efficacy of new treatments. The department welcomes those interested in doing a higher degree in this area. Several successful PhDs have been completed in recent years
