Curtin Researchers in Sleep Apnoea Awakening

Sleep studies are essential in diagnosing sleep apnoea. However sleep studies can be quite costly.

Curtin’s Department of Mechanical Engineering reconstructed three-dimensional models of the airways for a set of diagnosed OSA sufferers and 'control' subjects without OSA.
