Areas of Clinical Interest

Outpatient consultation and hospital sleep medicine.

Sleep disorders: obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea, treatment adherence issues associated with positive airway pressure therapy, sleep related hypoventilation, obesity hypoventilation syndrome, circadian rhythm disorders, insomnia, hypersomnia, narcolepsy, restless leg syndrome, periodic limb movement disorder, and parasomnias (sleep walking, sleep-related eating disorder, REM behavior disorder, etc). 

Respiratory failure caused by neuromuscular disease (i.e. ALS, muscular dystrophy, etc.), chest wall deformity, lung disease and congestive heart failure using noninvasive ventilation (NIV) delivered through a variety of ventilatory modes.

Areas of Research Interest

Dr. Chi is a principle investigator and co-investigator of the following clinical trials: 

1. The impact of treating obstructive sleep apnea on mild cognitive impairment
2. The impact of oxygen therapy in patients with heart failure and central sleep apnea
3. The effect of CPAP on cardiac function in hospitalized patients with obstructive sleep apnea and heart failure
4. Reducing heart failure re-admissions by enhancing CPAP adherence
