Prof Bilston shows how the mandibular splint works

Determining new targets and approaches for treating sleep apnoea

We are running a range of NHMRC funded projects to determine how existing treatments for sleep apnoea work (for example mandibular advancement splints) so that we can optimise therapy and improve treatment success rates. As part of the Cooperative Research Centre for Safety, Alertness and Productivity we are developing new approaches to treat sleep apnoea that are tailored to each patient’s individual needs.
