Hartmut Schneider Lab

  • The Hartmut Schneider Lab studies sleep medicine and respiratory physiology during sleep. Our team develops ways to diagnose and treat patients with obstructive sleep apnea and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Recent inventions include a disposable pneumotachometer and a device for nasal air insufflations (NI). We recently developed a way to use both sleep and nasal insufflation treatments to reduce metabolic demand in patients with cystic fibrosis, a discovery which is now being tested in a clinical trial evaluating ways to slow down pulmonary cachexia.
