Dr Mary J Morrell has been investigating the physiology of a sleep disorder known as obstructive sleep apnoea, which can cause people to stop breathing during sleep. This disrupted sleep has implications for their ability to function during the day, as well as for their cardiovascular system.
Watch this video to find out more about obstructive sleep apnoea and the work of Dr Morrell, who is now embarking on a major multicentre sleep trial that aims to better understand the impact of sleep apnoea on elderly people, up to a third of whom suffer from this disorder.
