Craniofacial Phenotyping in Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Evaluating a novel photographic analysis method to predict obstructive sleep apnea
Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a serious public health problem, affecting approximately 2% of women and 4% of men in the middle-aged workforce. Current diagnostic pathways are complex and expensive. We have developed a novel photographic phenotyping tool, based on our longstanding expertise on the role of craniofacial structure in the pathogenesis of OSA. Early studies indicate that this new tool has research utility as a phenotyping tool, and clinical utility as a screening tool for OSA. We have an extensive research program to more fully assess the research and clinical applications of this new tool, including exploration of gender and ethnic differences.
