2019 Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) / Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) Symposium is organized by Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine (GSDM) and will be held from Mar 22 - 23, 2019 at Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is general dentists and specialists, primary care physicians, pediatricians and otolaryngologists. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 12.5 AMA PRA Category 1 credits. Conference Description: Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) are often accompanied by several comorbidities. These comorbidities are part of the growing epidemic of Cardiomyopathy, Stroke, Obesity, Diabetes, ADHD, Headache, Pain, and Fibromyalgia. OSA not only decreases an Individual’s quality of life but can be life-threatening. In children, obstructive sleep apnea can adversely affect both cognitive performance and physical development. This symposium will bring together internationally recognized speakers from different medical and dental specialties, to “connect the dots” between the physiological, clinical, and treatment aspects of OSA in children and adults. The audience will be able to participate in an interdisciplinary panel discussion with various experts, which is usually not part of didactic teaching at academic programs and is too current to be in textbooks. They will understand why traditional treatments of OSA and comorbid disorders fail and keep patients hostage to hope/disappointment. Conference Objectives: • At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be better able to. • Define and recognize comorbidities associated with Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) • Recognize and interpret the signs and symptoms of SDB and OSA • Compare treatment alternatives and decide about the best alternative that may suit patients’ needs within a variety of conservative and comprehensive treatment approaches
