Sleep apnea is a type of sleep-related breathing disorder characterised by pauses in breathing during sleep. Justine Aronson focuses on obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the most prevalent form, in which breathing is interrupted due to the obstruction of the upper airway. OSA has been identified as an independent risk factor for first-time and recurrent stroke. The overall aim of Aronson’s research is to improve our understanding of the effects of OSA and its treatment on the recovery of stroke patients. She looks specifically at the role of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP).
