Obstructive sleep apnea is a common disease that is now more widely recognized because of the rise in prevalence and the increasingly compelling data that shows major neurocognitive and cardiovascular sequela. At the same time, the clinical practice of sleep medicine is changing rapidly, with novel diagnostics and treatments that have established a home-based (rather than laboratory-based) management approach. The “one size fits all” approach to treating obstructive sleep apnea is rapidly being supplanted by a much more successful “personalized” approach. This course will review the most recent insights and discoveries in sleep disordered breathing, with a focus on diagnostics and therapeutics.
The biggest hurdles to implementing DSM in your practice will be discussed and easily reproducible solutions will be presented. This program will give you a basic understanding of all the principles of DSM, a pathway to integrate it into your practice, a well as the confidence to successfully begin treating patients.
