Statement of Practice Philosophy

Sleep, one of the most important parts of one’s day, allowing the body to replenish and renew itself for the following day’s events.  For those patients whose sleep is unrefreshing, restless, or in any way unsatisfactory, Dr. Chi offers a multidisciplinary approach and concern for the patient as an individual. 

Dr. Chi’s philosophy is patient-focused, forming a working partnership with the patient and the patient’s family in which the patient takes an active role in his/her treatment.  She uses her knowledge and compassion to offer the best possible care, leading to the best possible outcome for each patient.

Recent Clinical Studies Published

Dr. Chi's clinical research has focused on the pathogenesis of obstructive sleep apnea utilizing 3-D MRI techniques. One of her research interests is to understand the mechanisms leading to sleep apnea by examining the upper airway and soft tissue structures surrounding the upper airway. Working with Dr. Schwab and Dr. Pack at the University of Pennsylvania, her studies help us understand the role of key structures of the upper airway in mediating apneic events and develop treatment options.  Dr. Chi is also working on CPAP outcomes and adherence trials. Lanekanu Sleep Centers are currently active recruiting sites for these trials.
