Professor John Stradling

OSA Partnership Group


John Stradling is Emeritus Professor of Respiratory Medicine at Oxford University, having directed the respiratory sleep service at the Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals from 1985 until 2013.

His recent research has concentrated on obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and its cardiovascular consequences, most recently using the CPAP-withdrawal model to identify the key damaging mechanisms. He has particular concerns that OSA in drivers, particularly in HGV and coach drivers, is under-recognised and that such patients deserve a much improved service.

He has published over 200 original publications in peer reviewed journals, recently receiving the William C Dement award from the American Association of Sleep Medicine, an honorary doctorate from Grenoble University, the British Thoracic Society Annual Medal, and was a keynote speaker at the American Thoracic Society in 2016.
