ResMed’s Dr. Holger Woehrle featured in American Thoracic Society Assembly on Sleep and Respiratory Neurobiology

Woehrle joined Dr. Martin Cowie and Dr. Helmut Teschler for web-based Journal Club discussion of Adaptive Servo-Ventilation for Central Sleep Apnea in Systolic Heart Failure

On Thursday, October 8, 2015, ResMed vice president of clinical research and medical director for Europe, Holger Woehrle, M.D., along with Martin Cowie, M.D., Professor of Cardiology, Imperial College London, and Helmut Teschler, M.D., Professor of Pulmonology, University of Essen, Germany, discussed the article, Adaptive Servo-Ventilation for Central Sleep Apnea in Systolic Heart Failure (New England Journal of Medicine, 2015) at the Journal Club meeting of the Assembly on Sleep and Respiratory Neurobiology (SRN). Suzie Bertisch, M.D., Harvard Medical School, presented the article for discussion.

The Journal Club is part of SRN’s monthly schedule where high impact and important publications in the field of sleep medicine are presented and discussed by their authors and leaders in the field. ResMed is proud to include their research in this month’s feature.

  • The Assembly on Sleep and Respiratory Neurobiology is a subdivision of the American Thoracic Society. SRN focuses on clinical and research questions associated with sleep, sleep apnea, and hypoventilation, respiratory sensation and the control of breathing, intermittent hypoxia and cardiopulmonary and metabolic interactions during sleep. Their mission is to translate this knowledge into prevention of disease, and improved diagnosis, treatment and patient outcomes.
