Brief description This project will characterise Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) in early adulthood. It will assess the prevalence of OSA in a well characterised cohort (the Raine Cohort), representative of the population of young adults in Western Australia. It will define the clinical picture and risk factors associated with abnormal breathing during sleep and will use the extensive longitudinal data collected from 18 weeks gestation until 23 years of age to quantify early life developmental and environmental predictors that can inform public health policy.
