Research & Publications

Research Summary

Dr. Patil has a longstanding interest in the pathogenesis of obstructive sleep apnea, particularly examining the relationship of obesity, inflammation, and adipokines to mechanical and neuromuscular factors that contribute to upper airway collapsibility. This has involved research studies involving bariatric surgery, HIV-infected, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease patient groups affected by OSA. More recently he has been involved in clinical trials examining the effects of therapy on the cardiovascular consequences of OSA.
