Sleep disordered breathing in children is an under-appreciated public health problem.  It can have many causes and its effects can be far reaching, impacting many disciplines of health and wellness.

That’s why I-ARC was established as Canada’s first clinically based team for multi-disciplinary research and treatment innovation. By forming this multi-specialty collaboration between pediatric Otolaryngology, pediatric Respirology, and Sleep Medicine, Maxillofacial Radiology, Orthodontics, and Biomechanical Engineering, we hope to help children achieve better sleep, better health, and ultimately better living.
