The Physiologic Approach to Treating OSA – Level II
- Posted on: Jul 31 2019
Course Type: Elective Courses
You have been presented the information about OSA and its relationship to TMD in Level 1. This course allows you to find out how many undiagnosed OSA patients are left that way by even a very experienced Sleep Dentist, because they don’t know what to look for. This course presents information on how to treat UARS and how not to miss its diagnosis. After completing this course, you should become more knowledgeable about understanding and interpreting PSG’s and home screening studies. You will also be presented information regarding how to better communicate with Sleep MD’s and other professionals. You will discover the physiology of respiration and why that’s important to understand. This course will take you beyond the basic sleep dentist capability and transform you into an OSA expert.

Having started studying sleep at LVI approximately 8 years ago, it is amazing how the study of sleep has evolved at LVI. The embracing of the physiologic approach to OSA has made the results significantly better for both the patient and the doctor. LVI has created a quantum leap in the understanding of patient problems, as well as the resolution of those problems. The things that we learned at LVI give us the ability to better understand the needs of our patients and address those needs with solutions that respect the physiology of the patient.
