Joseph Gannon is a Senior Physiologist specialising in Sleep and Respiratory Medicine, and is proficient in the diagnosis and treatment of a vast array of sleep disorders in patients experiencing sleep problems including insomnia, snoring and sleep apnoea. A key part of his role is to ensure that specialised guidance and support is provided from the time of diagnosis until the successful treatment of the disorder in question.
As the Chief Sleep Physiologist at The Sleep Disorders Clinic, Joseph is responsible for the interpretation of sleep studies, patient continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) initiations and compliance follow-ups. He also leads the analysis and reporting of other external sleep centres' sleep studies.
In his previous role at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children, Joseph was a Senior Physiologist whose main focus was on sleep and ventilation. This role involved lead titrations of mechanical ventilation in a rare but broad group of patients, and also analysis of sleep studies from basic oximetry to full polysomnography.
Joseph’s skills have developed during the 10 years he has worked within the speciality of sleep physiology, and his previous roles have included working in drug research in a clinical trials environment at Hammersmith Medicines Research, at Guys and St Thomas' Hospital Sleep Disorders Centre, and other private and NHS institutions.
