Current Research:
Dr. Katz’s research aims to determine the prevalence of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) in chronic disease states, to study diagnostic tools and predictors of SDB, and to evaluate the benefits and consequences of treatment with non-invasive ventilation and other assistive respiratory technologies, from a multi-disciplinary perspective, Dr. Katz is conducting a multi-centre cohort study of the impact of non-invasive ventilation in obese youth with obstructive sleep apnea. She is evaluating neck circumference and body fat distribution as predictors of SDB, as well as non-invasive ventilation and lung volume recruitment therapies in neuromuscular disease.
Dr. Katz is a Clinical Investigator at the CHEO Research Institute, and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of Ottawa. She is a Pediatric Respirologist with expertise in sleep-disordered breathing and is the Director of the Sleep Laboratory at CHEO. Dr. Katz holds competitive research funding and has published on the topics of sleep-disordered breathing, non-invasive ventilation, and assistive respiratory technologies.
