The proposed research will explore the effectiveness of new non-invasive treatments for OSA including: 

  • Exploring whether the observed reduction in carbon dioxide sensitivity in OSA patients is reversible or not; and whether it can be adjusted to improve OSA?
  • Exploring whether the change in energy production during breathing with OSA is a result of respiratory muscle exhaustion, and if so, can these be changed by training the respiratory muscles, to improve OSA symptoms?
