Research


Scientific Research: 

  • Diagnostic of sleep disordered breathings (drug induced sleep endoscopy, new diagnostic tools in detection of sleep disordered breathings)
  • Pathophysiology of obstrctive sleep apnea (OSA)
  • Alternative treamtents in mask intolerance (CPAP-Intolerance)
  • International Training and Research Center on Upper Airway Stimulation
  • Evalution of new surgical treatments in therapy of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
  • Analysis of snoring sounds
