The Physiologic Approach to Treating OSA: Level I – LVI Global
September 11, 2016 - September 13, 2016$3,695
Hundreds of millions of people of all ages around the world suffer from deadly obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) has been linked to Cardiovascular Disease, Cerebrovascular Insult, Endocrine Disorders and Obesity. Our medical colleagues are asking for our help, NOW! OSA is considered a disease of craniofacial anatomy so the ONUS is on dentists to identify and help manage OSA sufferers.
Attendees of each OSA I course will receive, at no charge, a personal home screening for sleep apnea as well as a sleep appliance for their own mouth.
This two-day program presents an excellent introduction to evidence-based Dental Sleep Medicine and is designed to prepare dentists and their teams to confidently identify, refer and help co-manage patients with snoring and deadly obstructive sleep apnea. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the relationships between sleep breathing disorders, neuromuscular dentistry and health. They can discover how to get started, immediately expanding their diagnostic acumen and scope of practice.
The goal of this course is for all participating dentists to become the Dental Sleep Physicians that medical sleep specialists want and need to recognize and refer patients. The possibility of knowing what to do about OSA when you return to your office on Monday morning should encourage you to experience this course!
