This webinar aims to inform clinicians of the evolving role of facial skeletal surgery for the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). Participants will learn about the risks and benefits of contemporary orthognathic surgery and how it can offer a cure for selected OSA patients. They will be able to use this knowledge to inform patients about the appropriate treatment options.
- Date and time Mon 18 Jan 2021 from 7:00pm to 8:05pm
- Location Online
- Organised by Odontology, Sleep Medicine
Episode 5 of the Sleep and Dentistry webinar series.
In this webinar experts will discuss the benefits of collaborative working between ENT surgeons, dentists, and other clinicians, focusing on the treatment of sleep patients. Speakers will give specific details regarding the individual circumstances where this type of collaboration would be beneficial. A simplified algorithm for this working practice will be provided, as well as the experience of Mr Vik Veer and Dr Aditi Desai who have worked with this protocol.
The key learning objectives will be:
- Assessment of the upper airway prior to treatment.
- Nasal airway treatment for patients considering MAD
- Hybrid / shared treatment options in multi-level collapse patients
- Reducing the invasiveness of surgery with MAD
- Treatment of recurrence or temporary periods where sleep apnoea would be worse.
A CPD certificate with 1 CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.
