A/Prof Brian Ko and Respiratory Physician Dr Martin MacDonald
Through both their clinical interaction and research collaboration, A/Prof Brian Ko and Respiratory Physician Dr Martin MacDonald identified the need for better integration of cardiac and respiratory/sleep services and greater collaboration between these specialties.
