This course will allow the general practitioner to survey the current landscape of medical and dental treatments for sleep apnea and decide how and if they want to evolve into this life saving arena. Sleep medicine has progressed in both the diagnosis and treatment protocol and outcome predictability. Discussed is all aspects of screening for sleep apnea in our patients. Apps that screen patients at night and evaluate the quality and quantity of sleep are now available. Observation of the patient's appearance and their answer to specific questions is also part of the screening process. After screening, the dentist needs to have a "conversation" with the patients that are at risk for sleep apnea and examples of these conversations are given. This is part 2 of a comprehensive series of courses on Dental Sleep Medicine by Dr. Murphy that are being released on Dentaltown. Description of Speaker:
