Key Project Outcomes
Through this grant, our team was able to have in-depth investigations on the characteristics of a novel physiologic marker that is available from routine sleep studies. The results of this project will help clinicians become more familiar with the nature of this marker, which we hope to be further explored and applied to clinical practice. We plan to disseminate our work through peer reviewed publication.
