Coronavirus (COVID-19): Advice, guidance and visiting restrictions for patients
Dr Oscroft is a respiratory physician within the Respiratory Support and Sleep Centre. He has a special interest in sleep medicine and respiratory support. This includes expertise in respiratory (eg obstructive sleep apnoea) and non-respiratory (eg restless leg syndrome, narcolepsy) sleep disorders. He also has experience in the management of patients requiring domiciliary non-invasive ventilatory support and the weaning of tracheostomised patients from invasive mechanical ventilation.
He is clinical lead for the Royal Papworth Adult Ataxia Telangiectasia Service, a nationally commissioned service providing holistic MDT lead care to a complex group of patients. His research interests include the use of non-invasive ventilation in COPD patients with chronic ventilatory failure, Ataxia Telangiectasia and the impact of CPAP and other therapies in OSA.
The management of chronic ventilatory failure associated with COPD with non-invasive ventilation.
