Description:

This course focuses on Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) Disorders such as snoring, somnolence and sleep apnea. It reviews the underlying mechanisms of these problems, including brain and anatomic alterations that predispose a patient to SDB. Lectures include an explanation of airway closure, factors that predict or predispose to airway closure and the medical and psychological consequences of sleep disordered breathing. Since a dentist must be able to order and interpret polysomnographic reports and understand various treatment options, these issues will be discussed extensively. This course also provides detailed demonstrations of various appliances that can be used to treat patients. The second day involves a presentation of several cases that illustrate all of the common treatment methods used for SDB. Case histories and polysomnographic data from five SDB cases will be presented and discussed during this course.
