Brief description The current project aims to determine how obesity causes obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), a disorder associated with significant cardiovascular morbidity & mortality. This research is a burgeoning area given that obesity is one of the western world’s leading health care concerns. Our findings may ultimately offer a refinement of weight-loss interventions to maximise their effects on OSA as well as offering novel treatment strategies in the management of this disorder that is desperately needed.
