Personal profile

Research Biography

Prof Catcheside is a sleep and respiratory physiologist at the Adelaide Institute for Sleep Health: A Flinders Centre of Research Excellence located in a new 6 bed sleep research facility in the Mark Oliphant Building. His training and background provide a unique mix of clinical research, technical and computing skills fundamental to the success of a broad range of detailed investigations into mechanisms and consequences of disturbed breathing and sleep. His current work is predominantly focussed on improving treatments and diagnostic methods for sleep breathing disorders such as obstructive sleep apnoea, problem snoring and central sleep apnoea, and on understanding mechanisms and consequences of disturbed sleep through respiratory problems or environmental noise exposure. Related interests in respiratory physiology and mechanics also seek to improve the understanding and assessment of increased inspiratory effort in other settings such as in asthma, COPD and in patients requiring ventilation in intensive care.
