As the extent of scientific and evidence-based medical research linking sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) to other serious health problems and high health care costs continues to grow, ResMed finds it increasingly important to promote awareness of this potentially life-threatening disease. To help achieve this goal, our Narval CC webinar series offers a variety of insights and solutions to help today's busy healthcare professionals keep up with the latest topics of interest in the field of oral appliance therapy.
Date: Wednesday, May 18, 2016
Time: 2–3pm ET / 11am–12pm PT
Speaker: Mayoor Patel, DDS, MS, Diplomate, ABDSM
As AASM guidelines recommend the use of portable monitors to assess patient response to non-CPAP treatments for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)1, home sleep testing (HST) is increasingly being used in the management of OSA patients on oral appliance therapy to determine the optimal amount of advancement2. When utilized in tandem under the guidance of board certified sleep specialists and AASM-accredited facilities, HSTs may help dental sleep professionals strengthen collaborative efforts among multidisciplinary teams.
Join us for a complimentary webinar on Wednesday, May 18 (2pm ET/11am PT), where you'll learn:
