My interests are pediatric sleep medicine, applications of noninvasive ventilation for children and sleep education. Also I educate medical students, respiratory therapy students and residents about sleep and essentials of noninvasive ventilation in pediatric patients.
I am very interested in sleep education with fellows and staff.
My next project is the development of a pediatric muscular dystrophy clinic with neurology and the comprehensive care clinic.
