About This Project

As a pediatric anesthesiologist I observed that many kids with sleep apnea who came in for tonsil removal continued to have neurological issues. We hypothesize that obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) mediated brain injury in children lead to irreversible cognitive deficits when not treated appropriately. In this study we aim to develop a mouse model for sleep apnea to define an appropriate period of intervention.
