Posted on Jan 30, 2020: Dr. Sunil Sharma is looking for a motivated student who is interested in learning more about improving care for West Virginians who have limited access to health care. Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) is a highly prevalent condition with fatal cardio-pulmonary implications. Though early recognition and treatment of SDB can avert heart failure, it is an under-recognized and under-diagnosed condition. Our novel hospital sleep medicine program provides cost effective early screening, diagnosis and intervention of SDB in hospitalized patients. The goal of this study is to evaluate the program’s effectiveness. We are interested in (i) the impact of early interventions on SDB in patients hospitalized for COPD exacerbation and (ii) screening of acute stroke patients with high resolution pulse-oximetry for undetected SDB.
