Title: A Novel Non-invasive Approach for Measuring Upper Airway Collapsibility in Mice


Yoichi Nishimura has expertise in the evaluation and surgical treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. His current work focuses on building methods for predicting surgical responses based on streamlined measurements of upper airway collapsibility (critical pressure, Pcrit. His ?ndings demonstrating expiratory obstruction in mice have broad applicability to studies in sleeping humans. His approach holds the potential for streamlining measurements of Pcrit and facilitating research across species and interventions.
