Sleep Revolution

The Sleep Revolution project, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020, is introducing an approach based on machine learning to assess OSA severity and treatment needs. Through a set of wearables and a digital management platform, the project aims to bring together researchers, patients and healthcare professionals to provide a state of the art method of accurate OSA diagnosis and optimal treatment.

ESRS Involvement

The ESRS is responsible for Work Package 12: Standardisation and Dissemination. This involves facilitating the co-ordination and dissemination of findings from the many research projects carried out by the Sleep Revolution consortium. This will be achieved by presentations at the bi-annual congress of ESRS, which is attended by about 2,000 participants, and by publications in the society journal, the Journal of Sleep Research, which is one of the highest impact sleep journals worldwide. Work Package 12 will also include the employment of a research methodologist by ESRS, funded by Sleep Revolution, whose role will be to facilitate systematic reviews and meta-analyses of existing publications relating to relevant topics for the project. This work will help clarify the existing evidence base for relevant research topics and to identify relevant topics for further research.
