Conference Brochure

Treating the Not-So-Silent-Killer: Protecting Patients with Sleep-Disordered Breathing (SDB) is organized by Glidewell Laboratories and will be held from Sep 18 - 19, 2020 at Glidewell International Technology Center, Irvine, California, United States of America. This course has been approved for a maximum of 13 Hours.

Description:
The most frequent symptoms of a patient with sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) are snoring and fatigue, but in severe cases these patients can stop breathing for extended periods of time during sleep. Strokes, heart attacks and automobile accidents are all too common. To address this potential danger, the ADA adopted a policy in 2017 stating that all dentists are encouraged to screen their patients for sleep disorders. Reasonable and prudent practitioners need to screen all patients for SDB and initiate appropriate diagnosis and therapy where indicated. Failure to do this could result in legal problems. Patients who are screened for SDB and are found to be dangerously sleepy need immediate help.

In this course, Dr. Berley will cover techniques that satisfy the legal requirements for appropriate screening, and he will provide an introduction to provisional mandibular advancement therapy (PMAD). The PMAD protocol provides provisional therapy that can be used to minimize symptoms and improve daytime sleepiness until a final diagnosis and definitive therapy is initiated. This therapy can reduce the risk to the patient and minimize the course participant’s risk as a healthcare provider.

Learning Objectives:
• Identify SDB using a standardized method
• Administer the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) protocol for the treatment of SDB with mandibular advancement appliances
• Manage SDB using mandibular advancement devices
• Employ the appropriate mandibular advancement appliance for PMAD therapy
