Rashmi Nisha Aurora Lab

  • Work in the Rashmi Nisha Aurora Lab explores topics within the field of sleep medicine, with a focus on pulmonary diseases that are disruptive to sleep and the use of polysomnography for diagnosing sleep disorders. Our recent research has included studies on home sleep testing for sleep apnea patients, the relationship between sleep-disordered breathing and caffeine consumption, and how obstructive sleep apnea impacts type 2 diabetes in older adults. We also have an interest in critical care medicine and have conducted studies on the ongoing effects of traumatic brain injuries on sleep.
